I purchased this book first on a sale and found it so well written and clear that I decided to buy another one as a gift. The recipes are described in American and European measures (lb/oz and cups, Kg/g and spoon or metric system) making it easy for anyone to read and follow the recipes. The illustrations are very nice and the recipes cover both Vietnamese and Cambodian cuisine: many are simple to make and already brings great satisfaction to your palate. Some are more complex (making stocks can be an adventure) and very flavorful as well as inspiring. By the way, for the stocks, don't be so impressed: preparing one day the pork ribs (needing to boil first in water), save the water for a later stock for a delicious soup. Same for chicken (all stocks preserves great in the freezer anyhow so don't be scared of playing).

From a few combinations, I started to make recipes within the spirit of the cooking of the countries so, this book is very educational beyond speaking of the introductory overview of the Vietnamese and Cambodian cuisine and ingredients).

I highly recommend this book.

We bought this book after looking it over at the library. It provides a fantastic education about typical ingredients and the culture of Vietnam. The recipes have all been delicious so far and we have made quite a few. Nothing is too difficult and I was easily able to find the ingredients. I did have to go to the Asian market for one thing, but otherwise all were readily available. Love it and glad to have it on my cookbook shelf.

Ok I have to admit...I can't stand most Vietnamese food.
I have braved a full course meal at a Vietnamese restaurant, under duress mind you, at my daughters insistence.
But she practically craves it...and this was a gift for her...
So a good rating for this book 'cause she likes it... best mom in the world!

This book is simple to read and understand. The recipes aren't very authentic but are easy to follow. The recipes are more geared for restaurants. The first quarter of the book, is a write up about the cultures and food of Vietnam and surrounding countries. I made about 4 meals from the book and absolutely loved them.
