Product description


"This gorgeous coffee table-worthy cookbook from the dashing Australian chef and host of Cooking Channel's "Passport To Asian" strikes the perfect balance between beauty and brains. The National Geographic-style color photos are visually breathtaking and the interesting-but-doable recipes will have your travel hound friends reaching for their passports, with a slight detour to the kitchen of course." The Oregonian
...this book is big and beautiful. Its recipes deliver Vietnamese dishes without a lot of specialty-store shopping." Washington Post

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.
