5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for Non-Asian Cooks like ME!, December 18, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Into the Vietnamese Kitchen: Treasured Foodways, Modern Flavors (Hardcover)
I love this book. I recently married the love of my life who happens to be Vietnamese/Chinese and I was sad to think that I had to send him to his moms if he wanted "authentic food" as I am Hispanic. BUT I found this book and it is perfect for me! I love to cook and was up to the challenge of learning a new type of cuisine..and this book is perfect, as it explains very basic things such as the different spices, and even how to handle rice paper.The flavors apparently are very authentic(that is what the husband says) and it is very clearly written for someone who is unfamiliar w/ Asian meat/vegetable preparation. I have tried about 50% of the recipes and they are all great! Thank you so much for creating such an authentic Vietnamese book in ENGLISH..just wish you had a recipe for Banh Ran(sesame mung balls) as that is my favorite Vietnamese Dessert!

I know it has been a while since you posted, but if you are still interested, I found a recipe for bahn cam/ran. I have not tried to make them, but this site seems to be pretty hardcore about their Vietnamese food (in a great way). They just posted the recipe for the sesame mung balls this weekend. The first picture is for the recipe you requested. http://www.theravenouscouple.com/category/vietnamese. Hope that helps!
