Publishers Text

Much more than a collection of authentic recipes from successful Vietnamese restaurant Red Lantern, this book is the honest, difficult story of the Nguyen family as told by daughter Pauline - documenting their escape from Vietnam and eventual resettlement in Australia. At the heart of this story is a love of food - it helped to placate homesickness, became central to their early success in Australia, and was sometimes the only language the family could use to communicate with each other. In the end, it was this shared passion for food that reconciled the family and help create Red Lantern's success.
