Little Vietnam brings together 80 authentic recipes that capture the energy, color and excitement of Vietnamese cooking.

Acclaimed Vietnamese chef and restauranteur Nhut Huynh shares his passion for the food that sustained his family during times of war and separation and which today inspires him to explore Vietnam's wonderfully rich culture. In this easy-to-follow Vietnamese cookbook, Nhut introduces traditional classics alongside the eclectic street-stall dishes he has collected on his many trips back to Vietnam to visit friends and family. Throughout, Nhut offers practical tips on sourcing ingredients locally and mastering cooking techniques.

Delicious Vietnamese recipes include:
  • Beef Noodle Soup
  • Salt and Pepper Squid
  • Rice Paper Rolls
  • Chicken with Lemongrass and Chili
  • Crab with Tamarind and Chili
  • And many more…
. Based on ingredients available at most Western supermarkets, these recipes will delight the home cook, while Nhut's personal story will inspire all of us to take a longer look at an emerging country and its rich culinary traditions.
