i have been using this for years and highly reccomend it: "the simple art of vietnamese cooking", by binh duong. i think this is out of print but used copies can be had at amazon.

also, "into the vietnamese kitchen...." by andrea nguyen

i would also look for anything by jeffrey alford. especially "hot sour salty sweet" and "the seduction of rice". while not completely devoted to teh vietnamese kitchen there is valuable info about alot of asian cuisines.

The Best of Nicole Routhier

By Nicole Routhier

This cookbook has been invaluable. I think it's a nice primer for learning about basic sauces, condiments, salads and classic dishes. Worth the money for the warm beef salad recipe alone.

These 2 web sites are very good for info & recipes:

simply vietnamese

Rasa Malaysia

I have learnt a huge amount from the Rasa Malaysia website on Asian food generally, the link above should take you to the Vietnamese recipes but there are many more asian countries covered.

I also have the Best of Nicole Routhier book and this has a nice selection of recipes to get started on.

The Foods of Vietnam by Nicole Routhier is a good intro to Vietnamese cooking.

I also enjoy reading Viet World Kitchen, which includes good discussions of key ingredients (ie. fish sauce) as well as lots of recipes.

Can you help me finding a good vietnamese cookbook.

It can be the old fashioned Mama style or something contemporary...

Thanks in advance,

      After batting about .500 with my previous approach to macarons, I came across Pierre Herme's base recipe online.  After two flawless batches of macarons, I've been re-energized to continue to work at mastering them.  Specifically, I want to try more of his recipes.  My conundrum is that he has, as far as I can tell, two macaron cookbooks and I don't know which one I should get.  I can't tell if one is just an updated version of the other or a reissue or what the differences really are.  I was hoping somebody had some insight.  I have searched online and haven't seen both books referenced in the same context or contrasted at all.
       
      This one appears to be older.

       
      And this one appears to be the newer of the two.

       
      Any insight would be helpful.
       
      Thanks,

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.
       
      Here's the link to her book at Eat Your Books.

      Thanks to @blue_dolphin, I was forced to buy this cookbook  and it was delivered today.  No matter how hard I try, I just don't super enjoy cookbooks on my Kindle.  Anyway, I'll most likely be alone on this thread due to low okra likability lol, but I'm an only child and I'm used to being alone 😁
       
       

       
       First on the list will be the Kimchi Okra from page 100--as suggested by @blue_dolphin.
       
      I'll be back on this thread soon
