Vietnamese recipes are simple, but they have a unique flavor. This novel cookbook is filled with tasty recipes and luscious photographs from that southeast Asian country. These recipes feature lots of simply delicious meals. These Vietnamese cooks tell how to make dishes like "Shaking Beef with Purple Onions and Watercress." How does that sound for a meal of new tastes?

There are recipes for stir-fry salads and soothing soups. Rice Paper Wrapped Summer Rolls are a delight to serve to friends and family alike. Then you can move on to a sweet potato entree that can be served with rice or noodles. You will learn some new techniques and even newer tastes to savor. The book includes extensive notes regarding the proper Asian ingredients as well as possible substitutes you can find at your local supermarket.
