New Flavours of the Vietnamese Table
03 July 2008
A land of vibrant cultures and vivid contrasts, Vietnam is also home to some of the most delicious and intriguing food in the world. While its cooking traditions have been influenced by those of China, France, and even India, Vietnam has created a cuisine with a spirit and a flavour all its own.
Travelling from region to region, Mai has gathered the simple, classic recipes that define Vietnamese food today: with fresh and healthy dishes like green mango salad with grilled beef, easy stir-fried chicken with lemongrass and chillies, deliciously sweet and sour caramelized garlic shrimp and especially pho, the country’s beloved beef-and-noodle soup. With more than 100 authentic recipes, New Flavours of the Vietnamese Table offers home cooks the chance to create and savour the authentic and irresistible flavours of Vietnam in their own kitchen.
