With Vietnamese restaurants flourishing across America, the cuisine of Vietnam has won a broad nationwide following. To satisfy this growing audience, STC is publishing Nicole Routhier's award-winning The Foods of Vietnam in a paperback format.
Routhier discusses the fascinating culinary history of her homeland, explaining how Vietnamese cooking has been influenced by the various nations that have conquered and occupied the country over the centuries. The particular genius of Vietnamese cooks lies in their creative adaptation of all these foreign influences to create a unique and subtle cuisine.
Along with 150 traditional recipes, the book offers a comprehensive glossary of ingredients, equipment, techniques, and an extensive list of mail-order sources to provide all the background necessary to prepare these dishes.
