The Vietnamese Market Cookbook
  • The Vietnamese Market Cookbook

  • Easy, vibrant street-food inspired Vietnamese recipes that you can cook at home from street-food entrepreneurs Van and Anh

    Vietnamese food is well-known these days – think cleansing noodle soups, succulent caramelized pork, spicy herb-filled baguettes, zingy salads, crunchy pickles, perfect dipping sauces, and moreish sweet coffee. Van and Anh began their award-winning street-food in East London’s Broadway Market, and that bustlingly fresh, creative market vibe typifies the cooking in this book. With the freshest of ingredients, exquisite flavours, bright colours, sociable plates for sharing, and comforting broths for one, this is traditional cooking made utterly current.

    ‘There’s a romance to this cookbook that is hard to resist… A great introduction to the flavours of Vietnam’ Conde Nast
