Author Andrea Nguyen first tasted pho in Vietnam as a child, sitting at a Saigon street stall with her parents. That experience sparked a lifelong love of the iconic noodle soup, long before it became a cult food item in the United States.

Here Andrea dives deep into pho’s lively past, visiting its birthplace and then teaching you how to successfully make it at home. Options range from quick weeknight cheats to impressive weekend feasts with broth and condiments from scratch, as well as other pho rice noodle favorites. Over fifty versatile recipes, including snacks, salads, companion dishes, and vegetarian and gluten-free options, welcome everyone to the pho table.

With a thoughtful guide on ingredients and techniques, plus evocative location photography and deep historical knowledge, The Pho Cookbook enables you to make this comforting classic your own.

Author: Charles Phan
Brand: Brand: Ten Speed Press

In his eagerly awaited first cookbook, award-winning chef Charles Phan from San Francisco's Slanted Door restaurant introduces traditional Vietnamese cooking to home cooks by focusing on fundamental techniques and ingredients.

When Charles Phan opened his now-legendary restaurant, The Slanted Door, in 1995, he introduced American diners to a new world of Vietnamese food: robustly flavored, subtly nuanced, authentic yet influenced by local ingredients, and, ultimately, entirely approachable. In this same spirit of tradition and innovation, Phan presents a landmark collection based on the premise that with an understanding of its central techniques and fundamental ingredients, Vietnamese home cooking can be as attainable and understandable as American, French, or Italian. 

With solid instruction and encouraging guidance, perfectly crispy imperial rolls, tender steamed dumplings, delicately flavored whole fish, and meaty lemongrass beef stew are all deliciously close at hand. Abundant photography detailing techniques and equipment, and vibrant shots taken on location in Vietnam, make for equal parts elucidation and inspiration. And with master recipes for stocks and sauces, a photographic guide to ingredients, and tips on choosing a wok and seasoning a clay pot, this definitive reference will finally secure Vietnamese food in the home cook’s repertoire.

Infused with the author’s stories and experiences, from his early days as a refugee to his current culinary success, Vietnamese Home Cooking is a personal and accessible guide to real Vietnamese cuisine from one of its leading voices.

Featured Recipe: Sichuan Cucumber Pickles

Sichuan Cucumber Pickles

These quick pickles need to sit in vinegar for only a few hours before you can eat them. They're great with fried items, since the inegar acts as a sort of palate cleanser. But the ginger, Sichuan peppercorns, and sambal oelek—a prepared red chile paste that is readily available at most grocery stores—make them different than the standard cucumber pickle.

  • 1 pound English cucumbers, halved lengthwise and cut on the diagonal into -inch-thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely julienned
  • 1 to 2 fresh Thai chiles, stemmed, seeded, and julienned
  • 4 cups rice vinegar
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons sambal chile paste, also known as sambal oelek
  • ½ cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sichuan peppercorns
  • ¼ cup whole dried red chiles, such as árbol

In a bowl, toss together the cucumber slices and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Transfer the cucumbers to a colander and let drain in the sink for 2 hours.

Rinse the cucumbers briefly under cold running water and drain well. Transfer to a bowl, add the ginger and fresh Thai chiles, and toss to mix. In a separate bowl, stir together the vinegar, sugar, sambal, and the remaining 2 tablespoons salt until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Set aside.

In a small frying pan, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the Sichuan peppercorns and toast for 10 seconds. Add the dried chiles and toast for 10 seconds longer, until the chiles darken slightly.

Pour the contents of the frying pan over the cucumbers, then add the vinegar solution and toss well. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate. The pickles are ready to eat in 2 hours. They will keep, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.

Eat Real Vietnamese Food: A Step by Step Guide to the Classic Cuisine of Vietnam

Eat Real Vietnamese Food: A Step by Step Guide to the Classic Cuisine of Vietnam Lowest new price: $22.37
Lowest used price: $23.87
List price: $32.95
Author: Lien Nguyen

A cookbook both useful in the kitchen and beautiful on the coffee table, Eat Real Vietnamese Food features over ninety delicious, classical Vietnamese recipes.

These recipes may not be available elsewhere. Vietnamese chefs are notoriously secretive concerning their recipes.

Each recipe is presented with clear, easy to follow, illustrated step-by-step directions as well as the historical background of the dish.

This book is a high quality production: full color in hard cover format with a dust jacket. But, why do we need another Vietnamese cookbook? The author, award winning cookbook writer Lien Nguyen, explains:

This book started as a quiet, seemingly innocuous project: a few years ago, I decided to learn more about Vietnamese cooking, because, after all, it is my cultural heritage, and I also love to eat! My mother had an extensive collection of recipes, some neatly gathered in a notebook, but most scribbled on loose sheets of paper, often presenting several conflicting versions of the same dish. So, I decided to sort it out and write down those she thought were the best version for each of her specialties.

Any undertaking of mine has a tendency toward "mission creep," as my husband will readily tell you, and this one was no exception. As I moved along, this book evolved into a project immortalizing a disappearing cuisine and a disappearing way of life. We decided to focus on my mom's domain of expertise: Vietnamese food from the early 50s.

Vietnam has had a long, restless history, and the 20th century was particularly turbulent. These difficult, troubled times made the 50s of particular interest in the culinary sense: in those years, many Vietnamese people emigrated from the North (including my father's family) and settled in the South, bringing with them, among other things, different ways of cooking and eating. They didn't always have access to authentic Southern cuisine: old classics were modified, sometimes happily reinterpreted, sometimes badly misunderstood. Later in the century, more changes followed with the American presence, and yet more with the new affluence of peacetime.

This book's ambition is to be a time capsule from the middle of the last century, when Vietnamese cuisine was still influenced by French culture, and before it evolved radically with the arrival of immigrants from the North.

I might be partial, but I feel that the cuisine of that time is particularly refined and worthy of being preserved. It is part of my parents' cultural legacy and, for me, it is the classic cuisine of Vietnam.

Eat Real Vietnamese Food presents recipes in two-page spread "story board" format. A full color, mouth watering photo of the finished dish along with an ingredients list and some historical information appears on the left page, and the detailed, illustrated step-by-step directions are found on the right. Ninety recipes are fully presented followed by a two special sections. The first describes in detail the preparation of the various sauces and accompaniments for the dishes, and the second describes in detail the various utensils and ingredients needed for the recipes.

Eat Real Vietnamese Food is a historical document, an attractive coffee table item, and a wonderful recipe book all in one.
