Vietnamese Cookbooks


Recommended Posts

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.

      Does anyone have any thoughts about Alice Waters' new "40 Years of Chez Panisse"? Not a recipe cookbook - more of a memoir/history/picture book.

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
