Alison Blackman, Editor in Chief of advicesisters.com, reviews and suggests 8 Fab Summer Books
Every family has a story, and it seems that families that foster great cooks, and that also cook together, are very interesting. The An family has built a restaurant empire and the matriarch, Helen An is hailed as the “mother of fusion. She was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute for her signature styles that blend Vietnamese, French and California influences. Together with one of her five daughters, Jacqueline An, they’ve created a unique cookbook An: To Eat: Recipes and Stories from a Vietnamese Family Kitchen.
It’s a perfect book to bring to your weekend hostess or a more adventurous amateur cook.
