Vietnamese Food Any Day By Andrea Nguyen

Happy publication date to Andrea Nguyen on her latest title, Vietnamese Food Any Day: Simple Recipes for True, Fresh Flavors from Ten Speed Press. We have shared the author's events on our calendar so be sure to check if she is in your area.


Andrea Nguyen is an award-winning writer and Vietnam native who is the voice behind the popular Viet World Kitchen website and the author of a library of titles devoted to her cuisine. Her books are member favorites as well as my go-to for Vietnamese dishes.

In her latest, Andrea draws upon her decades of experience, to guide us in using everyday ingredients to create true Vietnamese flavors at home. With Nguyen's expertise, there's no need to take a trip to a specialty grocer, just use her tips and tricks for getting Vietnamese flavors from those ingredients found at national supermarkets.

Andrea makes sure we have the basics down from how to make the perfect rice to pressure-cooker stocks. Each chapter that follows contains recipes that any level cook can conquer. This Sunday I made her Chile garlic chicken wings to wild praise and next on the agenda is her Shaking beef. I've been looking for the recipe for this dish and the version in this book looks like a winner (recently shared on the cover of February's Food & Wine).

Andrea's books are gold mines with recipes that work and narrative that leads us to success. If you don't have Into the Vietnamese KitchenThe Pho Cookbook, The Banh Mi Handbook or Asian Dumplings, buy them now to add to your collection along with Vietnamese Food Any Day
