Description

Join celebrity chef Luke Nguyen on a culinary and cultural journey through the country of his heritage to discover the people and food that have endeared Vietnam to the millions of international travellers who visit each year. Tying in with Luke's immensely popular SBS TV show, Luke Nguyen's Vietnam, this book follows his trip from southern Vietnam up to the north, through the marketplaces, backyards and kitchens of strangers and family alike. In addition to the stunning location photography and mouth-watering food shots, Luke's records of his experiences with the people he meets and the places he visits along the way pepper the pages of this book, breathing life into the classic recipes of Vietnam, from pho to banh mi and everything in between.

Review quote

"This gorgeous coffee table-worthy cookbook from the dashing Australian chef and host of Cooking Channel's "Passport To Asian" strikes the perfect balance between beauty and brains. The National Geographic-style color photos are visually breathtaking and the interesting-but-doable recipes will have your travel hound friends reaching for their passports, with a slight detour to the kitchen of course." The Oregonian
"...this book is big and beautiful. Its recipes deliver Vietnamese dishes without a lot of specialty-store shopping." Washington Post
