Product Description

Review

"Sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in south-east Asian food. . . . The photography is evocative enough to make you want to jump in and pull up one of the plastic stools with a cold beer. One of everything, please." --"Age"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very attractive book, with great photographs for every recipe, printed on good quality matt paper. The instructions are excellent, the food types varied, and the chat about the different street food stalls entertaining. But if you do not have access to a specialist (usually Chinese) supermarket you may find yourself unable to source many of the ingredients.

The recipes are divided into Roll, Grill/Roast, Boil/Steam. Fry, Baguettes/Salads, Sweets and Sauces/Condiments. Additional chapters are an introduction to street food culture in Vietnam, two pages about the recipes, a glossary and an index.

All of the recipes look marvelous in the photographs and the instructions are easy to follow. An English title is followed by the Vietnamese name and a brief paragraph of description. then, on the left, there is a complete list of ingredients (never ridiculously long) and on the right the blow by blow instructions for how to assemble the dish. A serving estimate is also provided (usually six, sometimes more).

Although some of the recipes can be made from ingredients sourced from major supermarkets, an awful lot must be sourced from specialist stores, if you are lucky enough to have one in the vicinity, or online suppliers. Difficulties included the all important rice-paper wrappers, rice noodle sheets, the occasionally used wonton wrappers, rice flour, various types of noodles of which I've never heard, Asian shallots, annatto oil, daikon, jicama, perilla leaves, dried squid, eel, fresh lemongrass stems, lotus leaves and seeds, galangal and cheong sausages. One recipe requires pig's ear, tongue and cheek. There is NO guidance as to what yo might substitute if you cannot find a particular ingredient.

I brought this on my kindle at a bargain price and I must say that I am very pleased with it as I do like eating Vietnamese food and the recipes I found were quite easy to follow and satisfying:
Beef rice paper rolls
Prawn and omelette spring rolls
Barbecued chicken wings
Sticky rice with peanuts
Wonton soup
Noodle Soup with Chicken
Braised beef with lemongrass and star anise
Salt Steamed chicken in baguette
Green papaya salad
Lotus Root Salad

Also, the ingredients can be easily sought from the Tesco’s, Sainsbury’s and Oriental/Asian supermarkets.

I cooked the Pho Ga from this book last week and it was delicious. I only wish I had bought this before I went to Hanoi a few months ago.
