Ăn: To Eat- Recipes and Stories from a Vietnamese Family Kitchen, written by Helene and Jacqueline An, features a collection of 100 unique recipes with influences from Vietnamese, French, and California cuisine. Helene and Jacqueline also share their remarkable family history, from a high-ranking aristocratic family in Vietnam to life during the wars, becoming refugees, relocating in America, and building their restaurant empire. Those already introduced to Vietnamese ingredients will find familiar flavors presented in a new and exciting way with French Onion Phở with Beef Ravioli, Balsamic Chicken Pot Stickers, Coconut Cake with Strawberry Sauce, Kobe Beef Meatballs on Sugar Cane, Tiato Rolls, and more.
This is a great book for those looking for Vietnamese flavors with a twist. Many of the dishes are naturally gluten-free and combine meat/lean seafood with fresh vegetables and herbs.
