Bring the Flavor of Vietnam to Your Kitchen

Salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and spicy: these are the flavorful tenets of Vietnamese cuisine. This exhilarating culinary culture is rich but light, deeply flavorful but made with simple ingredients, and filling while also easy to prepare. That's the message that authors Van Tran and Anh Vu wanted to bring to a hungry crowd when they opened their banh mi stall in London, an international city that surprisingly lacked the tastes of the authors' childhoods in Hanoi. As their business expanded, The Vietnamese Market Cookbook followed. The recipes are simpler than you might think but explode with the purest flavors of vegetables, seafood, lean meats, spices, chiles, and treasured Vietnamese condiments like fish sauce. Old and new favorites collide: Asparagus and Crabmeat Soup, Papaya Salad with Crispy Anchovies, Claypot Chicken with Ginger, Sea Bass Carpaccio, Kumquat Jasmine Iced Tea, and Cr Caramel. From chapters like "Sweetness and Happiness" to "Spiciness and Adventure" and "Saltiness and Healing," this lusciously filling book will bring a little bit of Vietnam into your home.

A Cookbook
Hardcover      ISBN: 1524761265
The James Beard Award-winning chef of Underbelly Hospitality, a champion of Houston's diverse immigrant cooks--Vietnamese, Korean, Mexican, Indian, and more--shows you how to work with their flavors and cultures with respect and creativity.

JAMES BEARD AWARD FINALIST

Houston's culinary reputation as a steakhouse town was put to rest by Chris Shepherd, the Robb Report's Best Chef of the Year. A cook with insatiable curiosity, he's trained not just in fine-dining restaurants but in Houston's Korean grocery stores, Vietnamese noodle shops, Indian kitchens, and Chinese mom-and-pops. His food, incorporating elements of all these cuisines, tells the story of the city, and country, in which he lives. An advocate, not an appropriator, he asks his diners to go and visit the restaurants that have inspired him, and in this book he brings us along to meet, learn from, and cook with the people who have taught him.

The recipes include signatures from his restaurant--favorites such as braised goat with Korean rice dumplings, or fried vegetables with caramelized fish sauce. The lessons go deeper than recipes: the book is about how to understand the pantries of different cuisines, how to taste and use these flavors in your own cooking. Organized around key ingredients like soy, dry spices, or chiles, the chapters function as master classes in using these seasonings to bring new flavors into your cooking and new life to flavors you already knew. But even beyond flavors and techniques, the book is about a bigger story: how Chris, a son of Oklahoma who looks like a football coach, came to be "adopted" by these immigrant cooks and families, how he learned to connect and share and truly cross cultures with a sense of generosity and respect, and how we can all learn to make not just better cooking, but a better community, one meal at a time.

Hardcover      ISBN: 1925811042
Vietnamese street food is - inarguably - one of the world's most dynamic cuisines. This book brings the flavor and spirit of those bustling streets to your home.

Author Jerry Mai is a master of street food. She owns a number of restaurants specializing in nuanced flavors of Vietnamese street pho. Throughout this book, Jerry presents street food from the length of the country. There's bahn mi, rice paper rolls, Vietnamese-style omelets, lemongrass and fresh herb infused stir-fries, fresh noodle salads and so much more. Learn the subtle finesse that distinguishes a Hanoi style pho from its southern relative.

If these dishes can be made on a cart, in the swarming streets of Da Nang, you can be confident in recreating them at home. With stunning photography of all 70 recipes, accompanied by gonzo imagery of the country itself, this is the perfect book for the armchair traveler or for those wishing to commemorate their trip. This book is the first instalment of the Street Food series, with Turkey and Mexico next on the chopping block.

As any visitor will tell you, traveling through Vietnam is a culinary awakening. From Hanoi - the country's capital, in the north - down to Ho Chi Minh, it's easy to find where the locals eat... Because it's right in middle of the street. Where the West might view street carts as specially reserved for the chronically intoxicated or intestinally masochistic, curbside vendors in Vietnam are the country's greatest chefs. Street Food: Vietnam is a glimpse into these compact kitchens-on-wheels, without any of the humidity.
