About the Author

Luke Nguyen is a renowned Vietnamese Australian chef, best known for his television series Luke Nguyen's Vietnam, which this book ties into, and more recently his new series Luke Nguyen's Greater Mekong. Born in a Thai refugee camp after his parents escaped their homeland in Vietnam, Luke's family eventually made their way to Australia where Luke was raised in Sydney's vibrant and storied Vietnamese quarter. His parents opened and ran a local Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Cay Du and it was this familial passion for food that first ignited Luke's interest in Vietnamese cooking. After learning the basics from his parents, Luke trained with a number of respected Sydney chefs before opening The Red Lantern restaurant with his sister, Pauline. Since then, The Red Lantern has become one of Sydney's most acclaimed restaurants, winning Best Vietnamese Restaurant in 2009. Luke has written four previous cookbooks: Secrets of the Red Lantern, Songs of Sapa, Indochine and Greater Mekong. Luke currently divides his time between his home in Sydney and Vietnam, where he is the host of Masterchef Vietnam.

Format: Hardcover
The recipies here are too similar to the previous book,which is why I do not give it a higher rating. That aside they are simple, tasty and good. The major disapointment is with the publisher, when will disigners of books realize that not all readers are 20 years old with perfect vision? Some of us find it hard to see pale blue print on bright white paper along with very small type. In my experience this is the biggest problem with this book.

What a book. I will be keeping this on the coffee table. Inspiring to see the way Luke travels and talks about the things he sees. The recipes are a bonus and the photos are very nice. I really enjoyed the tv show as well.

A truly stunning book beautifully set out with delicious authentic recipes.

I was able to buy the ingredients easily in my local Oriental grocers 'Thais 'R' Us' in Canterbury. The variety of dishes and the explanations given add to the culinary experience.

Having first come across Luke Nguyen on the TV series and been really impressed by his passion, respect and humour this book was a no brainer.

This would make a fantastic gift for any enthusiastic cook. Easy to follow recipes with stunning pictures.

This is a great book for many reasons - it's glossy enough for the coffee table, practical enough for the kitchen and interesting enough to plan your travels through Vietnam! What more could you want?

Have to admit that I haven't actually cooked anything yet from the book....
