Charles Phan's Vietnamese Home Cooking captures the very heart of Vietnamese food: fresh, pure, full of life, and vibrant with flavor. His beautiful pictures, stories, and recipes make it completely irresistible.
--Alice Waters, chef, author, and proprietor of Chez Panisse The great appeal of Charles Phan's cooking at The Slanted Door has always been its vivid purity of flavor.

In his long-awaited, warmly written first cookbook, Phan reveals the secrets of his approach to the great and varied food of his native Vietnam.
--Colman Andrews, editorial director of TheDailyMeal.com A truly magical and illuminating journey into the cooking of Vietnam, with recipes so thoroughly brilliant they will not only allow you to better understand the cuisine of that country, but they will also make you a better cook, Asian or otherwise.
