it was amazing
Read in January, 1995

The first Vietnamese book I ever owned and cooked from. Ties with Mai Pham's Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table as my favorite Vietnamese cookbook.

It's a rare book in the sense that it includes weeknight home-style recipes (not just recipes for entertaining). It doesn't stint on the spice or salt, and probably errs on the side of being too salty. But that's the more traditional treatment -- stretching out ingredients by forcing the family to eat more rice.

No photos whatsoever. Dog-eared and out-of-print.
