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.

Author: Helene An

In Vietnamese, “AN” means “TO EAT,” a happy coincidence, since the An family has built an award-winning restaurant empire— including the renowned celebrity favorite Crustacean Beverly Hills—that has been toasted by leading food press, including Bon Appétit, Gourmet, InStyle and the Food Network. Helene An, executive chef and matriarch of the House of An, is hailed as the “mother of fusion” and was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute for her signature style that brings together Vietnamese, French, and California- fresh influences. Now her daughter Jacqueline tells the family story and shares her mother's delicious and previously “secret” recipes, including “Mama's” Beef Pho, Drunken Crab, and Oven-Roasted Lemongrass Chicken.

Helene's transformation from pampered “princess” in French Colonial Vietnam, to refugee then restaurateur, and her journey from Indochina's lush fields to family kitchen gardens in California are beautifully chronicled throughout the book. The result is a fascinating peek at a lost world, and the evolution of an extraordinary cuisine. The 100 recipes in An: To Eat feature clean flavors, simple techniques, and unique twists that could only have come from Helene's personal story.

Eating Viet Nam: Dispatches from a Blue Plastic Table Lowest new price: $5.62
Lowest used price: $1.96
List price: $15.99
Author: Graham Holliday
Brand: Ecco Pr

A journalist and blogger takes us on a colorful and spicy gastronomic tour through Viet Nam in this entertaining, offbeat travel memoir, with a foreword by Anthony Bourdain.

 Growing up in a small town in northern England, Graham Holliday wasn’t keen on travel. But in his early twenties, a picture of Hanoi sparked a curiosity that propelled him halfway across the globe. Graham didn’t want to be a tourist in an alien land, though; he was determined to live it. An ordinary guy who liked trying interesting food, he moved to the capital city and embarked on a quest to find real Vietnamese food. In Eating Viet Nam, he chronicles his odyssey in this strange, enticing land infused with sublime smells and tastes.

Traveling through the back alleys and across the boulevards of Hanoi—where home cooks set up grills and stripped-down stands serving sumptuous fare on blue plastic furniture—he risked dysentery, giardia, and diarrhea to discover a culinary treasure-load that was truly foreign and unique. Holliday shares every bite of the extraordinary fresh dishes, pungent and bursting with flavor, which he came to love in Hanoi, Saigon, and the countryside. Here, too, are the remarkable people who became a part of his new life, including his wife, Sophie.

A feast for the senses, funny, charming, and always delicious, Eating Viet Nam will inspire armchair travelers, curious palates, and everyone itching for a taste of adventure.

It is always a challenge to find a meal that can satisfy your palate without making you worry about its impact to your weight.
Dieters often resort to eating in small portions to maintain their healthy figure. They also try to trick their minds into thinking that the meal made them full. Unfortunately, the trick fails them most of the time. They end up craving for more food that has more calories and unhealthy ingredients.
This is where the advantage of eating Pho and other Vietnamese noodles becomes evident. Vietnamese Pho is healthy, hydrating, nutritious, and filling. Many now enjoy this dish even when they are on a diet. It is also one of the few low-calorie broths that can be prepared in advance.

Heavy Authentic Pho Noodles

Medium and Light Authentic Pho Noodles

The recipes included here are usually light to medium in terms of calorie content. They are intended to keep you full until dinner. This will help you control your cravings during nighttime. This will help you control your weight. Many researches claim that eating a lot at night is one of the top reasons more and more people are becoming obese.

Vegan Pho Noodles

Pho noodles usually appeal to meat lovers. But, this book includes recipes that allow vegans and vegetarians to enjoy Vietnamese cuisine as well. This section contains recipes that will make them discover how delicious the Pho authentic taste can be even without animal meat.

Pho with a Twist

Additional Sections

Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table: Recipes and Reminiscences from Vietnam's Best Market Kitchens, Street Cafes, and Home Cooks

Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table: Recipes and Reminiscences from Vietnam's Best Market Kitchens, Street Cafes, and Home Cooks Lowest new price: $9.99
Lowest used price: $4.00
List price: $27.50
Author: Mai Pham
Brand: Mai Pham

A land of vibrant cultures and vivid contrasts, Vietnam is also home to some of the most delicious and intriguing food in the world. While its cooking traditions have been influenced by those of China, France, and even India, Vietnam has created a cuisine with a spirit and a flavor all its own.

Chef and restaurateur Mai Pham brings to life this diverse and exciting cooking in Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table. Born and raised in Saigon before emigrating to the United States, Mai has often returned to her native land to learn the secrets of authentic Vietnamese cooking, from family, friends, home cooks, street vendors, and master chefs. Traveling from region to region, she has gathered the simple, classic recipes that define Vietnamese food today: Green Mango Salad with Grilled Beef, Stir-Fried Chicken with Lemongrass and Chilies, Caramelized Garlic Shrimp, and especially pho, the country's beloved beef-and-noodle soup. With more than 100 recipes in all, Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table offers home cooks the chance to create and savor the traditional flavors of Vietnam in their own kitchen.

Filled with enchanting stories and stirring black-and-white photos of life in Vietnam, Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table provides a captivating taste of an enduring culture and its irresistible cuisine.

When Mai Pham--chef and owner of the renowned Lemon Grass Restaurant in Sacramento, California--left her home and her grandmother in Saigon in 1975, just days before the city fell to communist rule, she never thought she'd see either again. Happily for her, she returned 20 years later to rediscover her roots and reconnect with her 100-year-old grandmother. Happily for us, she's written Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table, in which she shares that journey--and the vibrant cuisine of her homeland. She weaves a stirring tale of rediscovery; of visiting with cooks in market stalls and street cafés and home kitchens; and, perhaps most importantly, of rediscovering her "favorite food on earth," pho, the noodle soup often referred to as the national dish of Vietnam.

Pham begins with a chapter on dipping sauces, condiments, and herbs, which, she explains, are the true backbone of Vietnamese cooking. She explores culinary variations: the "rice bowl" of the southern peninsula and the French- and Indian-inspired foods of Saigon; the more robust style of the cooler central region of Hue; and the straightforward style of the mountainous north. And she shares the simple, classic recipes that define Vietnamese food. Green Mango Salad with Grilled Beef is at once salty (from the ubiquitous fish sauce), sweet from the fruit, and tangy and spicy from Chili-Lime Sauce. Ginger Chicken is bright with the flavor of ginger and spicy with dried chilies; caramel sauce adds body and an intriguing sweet and smoky element to the dish. And of course, one can't forget the beloved pho, which gets a whole chapter to itself. The traditional Hanoi-style Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef is fragrant with anise and ginger and thick with velvety noodles and delectably rare beef suspended in the hot broth.

Featured throughout the book are black-and-white photographs of the country and its people, stories of Pham's childhood, and enchanting tales of the history and people of Vietnam that, taken together, highlight a rich and vibrant picture of the ancient cuisine of this complex country. Helpful guides to the Vietnamese pantry and cooking techniques, along with a glossary, menu suggestions, and a list of resources for the more exotic ingredients make the book extremely useful to even the uninitiated. --Robin Donovan
