Cookbook giveaway - The Banh Mi Handbook

The banh mi handbookAndrea Nguyen, cookbook author and contributing editor at Saveur, has penned a new book celebrating banh mi, the Vietnamese sandwich that owes its unique combination of flavors and textures to the influences of several cultures. (You can learn more about the history of banh mi in our author article.)

We're delighted to offer three copies of The Banh Mi Handbook to EYB members. Enter soon - the contest ends on July 31, 2014.

  • jupflute  on  7/3/2014 at 8:08 AM

    Tofu (I'm vegetarian, and it's rare, but I have had an absolutely amazing tofu banh mi)

  • SamanthaV  on  7/3/2014 at 8:46 AM

    I have the fondest memories of eating Banh Mi in Australia when I worked there, the little bakery was so popular at lunchtime that the line was through the door onto the street. I don't see the little bakeries here in the US so I'd love to make my own. I always love the addition of cilantro and the chili.

  • DKennedy  on  7/3/2014 at 9:21 AM

    I've never tried it!

  • chawkins  on  7/3/2014 at 9:41 AM

  • JoelleStr  on  7/3/2014 at 10:22 PM

    I love BahnMi. My favorite BahnMi place in Portland, Or lists one of the ingredients as "secrets". Love that!

  • boardingace  on  7/3/2014 at 11:41 PM

    I've only made one kind and that was tonight for the first time - so imagine my surprise to see this giveaway! It was a chicken Bahn mi and it was just so-so, so I definitely would love this cookbook, to get better ideas. Anything with pork sounds delicious :)

    The classic sweet pork & pate - lots of pickles

  • obbigttam  on  7/22/2014 at 10:29 AM

    The traditional pork roll with the works, and extra chilli and coriander (cilantro). Luckily here in Sydney there are so many Vietnamese bakeries they are easy to find, and soooo cheap :)

  • cheapbeets  on  7/24/2014 at 7:27 AM

    it's the cilantro and the pickled vegetables--plus the mayo--that really make it for me!

  • sarahcooks  on  7/24/2014 at 8:05 AM

    The pickled vegetables are my favorite part.

  • Sarabclever  on  7/24/2014 at 9:01 AM

    I've never tried banh mi but have heard it's really great.

  • chikadulce  on  7/24/2014 at 9:09 AM

    The first (and best) banh mi I ever had was with tofu. But you have to have those pickled veggies and cilantro to really make the sandwich!

  • jennij  on  7/24/2014 at 9:51 AM

    Pickled carrots! Yum!

  • FunkyViriditas  on  7/24/2014 at 9:58 AM

  • Nancith  on  7/24/2014 at 10:25 AM

    I made some Robin Robertson wheat gluten patties to sub for the meat--it fooled a lot of meat-eater friends & tasted fabulous besides.

  • stuCooks  on  7/24/2014 at 11:06 AM

    Name 1 favorite ingredient; 1 only; yeah, right :)

  • Jill_J  on  7/24/2014 at 1:33 PM

    I've never had one, but it sure looks delicious!!!

  • susan g  on  7/24/2014 at 1:36 PM

    I am fortunate to have a few restaurants in day-trip range ('here' being a food desert for Bahn Mi), and all of them are good. But my favorite part is the pickled vegetables - a universal.

  • mreils  on  7/25/2014 at 3:39 PM

    Chinese barbecued pork with pickled vegetable and hoisin sauce

  • bellasf  on  7/25/2014 at 6:36 PM

    I thought that grilled pork was my favorite, and then I tried the salmon bahn mi from this book. Tough decision.

  • Julia  on  7/25/2014 at 9:36 PM

    Grilled pork and cilantro.

  • rhelune  on  7/26/2014 at 1:17 AM
