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.

I so miss Vietnamese food after leaving LA. I would love love love to be able to make dishes myself. I'd really love to win, but if I don't, it will be going on the Christmas list!

I haven't read the book but just by looking at the Table of Content, i don't think the following dishes are common in Vietnamese homecooking or even Vietnamese,
Wonton Noodle Soup (sounds like Chinese), Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup (sound like Thai), Crab and Corn Soup (sounds like Chinese), Black Bean and Glazed Pork Spareribs (sounds like Chinese dimsum), Black Cod with Lily Buds and Dried Shiitake Mushrooms (i don't remember having black cod in Viet Nam), Chicken Steamed Buns (sound like Chinese dimsum because in Viet Nam chicken was considered too luxury to put in steam bun which is a commom Chinese food), Yuba Dumplings with Miso Broth, Broccoli with Beech Mushrooms and Roasted Chile Paste (there was no broccoli in VietNam), Scrambled Eggs and Pork (we had duck egg and pork omelette not scramble), Bok Choy with Baby Shiitake Mushrooms (sounds like a Chinese dish), Gulf Shrimp and Sing Qua Stir-Fry, Clams with Crispy Pork Belly and Thai Basil (sounds like Thai)

"Review" by , "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."
"Review" by , "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."
"Review" by , "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."
"Review" by , "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."
