I saw several articles back in the summer that Phan was finally writing a Slanted Door cookbook. Anybody know when this will be released? I've Googled to no avail.

We have the same literary agent (how pretentious does that sound! You are welcome!) and his book is due Fall 2012. I think it's pretty typical- you get a year to write if you're lucky.

If you want to start with something good while you wait for the book, he has shared the Shaking Beef recipe on line.

Yeah his clay pot carmelized chicken is available too and is a staple in my house. All of his recipes I've found online seem to be easily reproducable at home which is why I am eagerly awaiting the book.

I live in Alabama so I don't get to the Slanted Door often but it is my wife's favorite restaurant anywhere.

I have it. I haven't cooked out of it yet, but it was a joy to read and look at.

I bought it as an e-book....gorgeous photos, but I was kinda underwhelmed by the recipes. Maybe I was expecting too much....or maybe I already have half of shelf of Vietnamese & Viet-inspired cookbooks, so I really didn't need another one. But it is very pretty in e-form.

KInd of agree. The recipes I've made have turned out well, but they're either fairly standard or fusion-y. But it's a beautiful book, and if you don't have a bunch of Viet stuff already, it's an interesting introduction.

Thanks. I see Andrea Nguyen doesn't give it a very enthusiastic review. Nice to see it being praised in e-form though. Really do need to make use of my existing Vietnamese books. But................
