Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Water spinach with fermented soya beans

    • KarinaFrancis on February 08, 2014

      Delicious and super simple. I fell in love with this dish in Laos and this recipe is spot on. Goes perfectly w steamed or BBQ fish.

  • Tamarind crab

    • KarinaFrancis on November 30, 2014

      This was quick, easy and delicious. Would even work for a weekday dinner

  • Heart of palm salad

    • KarinaFrancis on February 10, 2014

      Was ok, but not great. I did have to substitue chicken for the prawns due to alergy. Not enough for dinner for 2, probably better as a part of a shared meal with a few different dishes

  • Green mango & dried shrimp salad

    • Kirstin_the_Kiwi on August 09, 2015

      This looks similar to the shredded green papaya salad (Timbodi Thoke) from The Bodhi Tree in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Bodhi Tree is a burmese restaurant.

Publishers Text

TV chef Luke Nguyen shares over 70 recipes from different countries within the Greater Mekong, one of Asia's most famous rivers. Join Luke as he journeys down the Mekong river, immersing himself in the culture and communities of the countries he visits, learning stories and histories from each region as well as sampling and recreating local cuisines.

Luke begins his travels in China where he explores the centuries old traditions of the Yunnan Province. He then moves to Myanmar and onto Northern Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. From China to Vietnam contains recipes that celebrate popular dishes as well as lesser-known regional delicacies. Sample chargrilled pork grilled in bamboo from Thailand, steamed lemongrass and dill fish from Laos, or for the more adventurous, Cambodia's clay-pot cola chicken.

With heartwarming stories and breathtaking photography, this is a must-have cookbook that will be treasured for years to come.
