Made in Vietnam: Homestyle Recipes from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh
Published by Hardie Grant Books
A journey through the length and breadth of Vietnam via its authentic home-cooking
Based on memorable meals eaten at street food stalls, family gatherings and countryside eateries, Made In Vietnam covers the three main culinary regions of the country: the heart food of the north, dishes from the centre (in the tradition of the cuisine of the imperial city Hue), and the sweeter, spicier food of the tropical south.This comprehensive collection includes staple Vietnamese dishes, such as Beef noodle soup (pho bo) and banh-mi but also lesser-known recipes, such as Banana Flower salad and Boiled jackfruit seeds. In addition to the recipes, Made in Vietnam looks at different aspects of the country's food history and its absorption of various culinary influences, including the extensive French and Chinese influence, long-established coffee culture, and the casual style of dining. Interwoven throughout the food photography are gorgeous shots of the markets, landscapes and people of this ever-varying country.
Tracey Lister runs the hugely successful school The Hanoi Cooking Centre, based in the city's old quarter. Her husband, Andreas Pohl, works as a writer, researcher and educator in Vietnam's cultural and social history.
