You might be forgiven for assuming that traditional food in Vietnam would be a variant of the typical Asian fare that you might know of and love. You might not, however, have realised that there is a very definate French connection!

In what looks like a hybrid between a richly-decorated travel book and a picture-rich cookery book, the author takes the reader to Vietnam to discover just how much of an influence French cuisine has in the country. For the avoidance of doubt this is not a faux-innova

An account of the French influence on Vietnamese cuisine. Luke travels Vietnam, meeting people who recall the French period, both Vietnamese and descendants of colonials who have returned to live and work in Vietnam, and makes an excursion to France to cook with his cousins there. Wonderful recipes, a bit of history and culture, travel anecdotes make this a cook book to read for pleasure as much as recipes. I will be cooking a lot of these dishes over the next year.

Baguettes như một món quà mà Pháp tặng người Việt. Ta đã biến baguettes thành bánh mì mỏng hơn, giòn hơn, rỗng hơn,... thập cẩm hơn. Cheese và salami được thay bằng thịt nướng hoặc char siu (xá xíu) của người Hoa. Hơn thế, chúng ta có đồ chua - pickle, pate (paté), chả lụa - terrine, ốp la - ouefs au plat, ốp lết - ommlette, xúc xích - saucisse, giăm bông - jambon. Ôi Pháp!
