Although she now lives in Europe, the author is very conscious of her Vietnamese heritage, and today owns a successful and trendy restaurant in Brussels. She takes us on a journey the length and breadth of Vietnam, presenting gorgeous fresh, healthy dishes ranging from grilled quail to pho, from five-spice duck breast to the delicious banh mi roll. In Australia our love affair with Vietnamese food just seems to grow stronger. In our house we make Vietnamese dishes almost every week, and now can experiment with more.
This cookbook takes you on a journey of flavours through Vietnam. Ten cities from north to south. Countless flavours. Culinary highlights, interspersed with personal anecdotes. It will not only teach you about how to prepare Vietnamese food, but also explores the cultural aspects of this beautiful country through the fascinating personality of Quyen. "
