Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his eagerly awaited first cookbook, award-winning chef Charles Phan from San Francisco's Slanted Door restaurant introduces traditional Vietnamese cooking to home cooks by focusing on fundamental techniques and ingredients.

Now people can enjoy the bold, spicy, fresh flavors of Vietnamese food at home with this authoritative reference from celebrated chef Charles Phan. Organized around the major techniques — frying, steaming, braising and stir-frying — Vietnamese Home Cooking includes 125 recipes such as Gulf Shrimp and Baby Bok Choy Stir-Fry, Crispy Stuffed Quail with Glass Noodles, and Green Papaya Salad, plus master recipes for stocks and sauces, a photo ID guide to ingredients, and a chapter on Vietnamese Street food. Infused with the author's stories and experience, from his early days as a refugee to his current culinary success, Vietnamese Home Cooking is a personal and accessible guide to authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

Review:

"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

Review:

"The great appeal of Charles Phan's cooking at The Slanted Door has always been its vivid purity of flavor. It isn't necessarily simple food, but there's not a soupçon of trickery or gratuitous filigree involved. 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

Review:

"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." James Oseland, editor-in-chief of Saveur, author of Cradle of Flavor

Review:

"Like the best cooking is, Charles Phan's food is deceivingly complex. With this book, Charles shows you how to unravel that code and make delicious Vietnamese food at home." David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku

I think I can be counted as being in the Phan Club. I just got this book from the library to see what I thought of it before buying it. My first impression was S**t that's heavy. The book weighs a ton but it is beautifully done lot of pictures. We tried one of the recipes tonight, we were wanting something not to heavy and noodles sounded good. We picked the book up looked through it and went straight to the grocery store. Mix and Match Wok Fried Noodles is what we decided to make. It turned out VERY GOOD. I only have a one change I would recommend to any one trying it. Unless you have a really large wok go with 8 ounces of noodles instead of 16. Our wok was so full VERY difficult to stir. The other changes I made were my own preference on flavor used sesame oil on the noodles and coconut oil in the wok. Looking at the rest of the recipes I say this book is a winner.

This sounds as good as Henry Chung's book so I definitely want a copy. Even if the recipe is a little "steppy" it is worth the time and trouble. Yum Yum

Having moved recently from Houston, TX to Olympia, WA I greatly miss both my Vietnamese neighbor's cooking and the large selection of Vietnamese restaurants. I have added this to my Christmas list. Am looking forward to trying the recipes in hopes of having good Vietnamese food once again in my dinner choices.
