Product description

About the Author

Luke Nguyen is a renowned Vietnamese-Australian chef, best known for his television series Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam, Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong and more recently Luke Nguyen’s France.Born in a Thai refugee camp after his parents escaped their homeland in Vietnam, Luke’s family eventually made their way to Australia where Luke was raised in Sydney’s vibrant and storied Vietnamese quarter. His parents opened and ran a local Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Cay Du and it was this familial passion for food that first ignited Luke’s interest in Vietnamese cooking.After learning the basics from his parents, Luke trained with a number of respected chefs before opening The Red Lantern restaurant. Since then, The Red Lantern has become one of Sydney’s most acclaimed restaurants, winning Best Vietnamese Restaurant in 2009. Luke has written five previous cookbooks: Secrets of the Red Lantern, Songs of Sapa, Indochine, Greater Mekong and The Food of Vietnam.
