Perfect for beginning cooks this beautifully illustrated Vietnamese cookbook provides easy-to-follow directions for quick and delicious Vietnamese dishes.
Famous for its lively, fresh flavors and artfully composed meals, Vietnamese cooking is the genuine "healthy cuisine" of Asia. Abundant fresh herbs and greens, delicate soups and stir-fries, and well-seasoned grilled dishes served with rice or noodles are the mainstays of the Vietnamese table. Even the beloved snacks or desserts are often based on fresh fruits served with sweetened rice or tapioca. Rarely does any dish have added fats.
Along with its delicate freshness, Vietnamese cooking is also subtle and sophisticated. It is at it's best when Vietnamese cooks strive for a balance balanced between salty, sweet, sour and hot, so no one taste outranks any other. Vietnamese Cooking Made Easy
