Beautiful pictures (of not just the food, but of the beautiful people and places of Vietnam as well!), unique, authentic recipes. The book is divided into three parts:
Part One: an introduction to what Vietnamese food is and the food styles of Vietnam.
Part Two: the Vietnamese kitchen and cooking methods and ingredients.
Part Three: the recipes! Categories include: Basic Recipes (sauces, pickles, stocks, etc.), Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Vegetables and Rice, Seafood, Poultry, Frogs' Legs and Snails(only one recipe for each), Pork, Beef, Desserts.
Book also includes a small mail-order source list for ingredients.
