To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great set of recipes that are easy to follow. The ice cream in particular has been a big hit in my house. I believe it accompanies a TV series so there is a fair bit of travelogue style writing about what he cooked in a certain place, which I was indifferent to. My only criticism is the layout: there is no index and no list of recipes and the book is arranged by region. So if you're interested in a soup, for example, you need to go through every page to check.
What a most wonderful book, it makes you feel as though you are there in Vietnam, cooking these amazing recipes. This fantastic book has lots of easy to follow recipes but also one has the stories of the regions, so one learns the cultural and fun side of Vietnam, I highly recommend this beautiful cookery book to anyone who loves Vietnamese cookery. The lead up text to the recipes is so absorbing and the photography of the dishes and the country are super. I am going on holiday early next year to Hoi An so was over the moon with the chapter on Hoi an, it gave me a brilliant insight to this region, Thankyou Luke.
I bought this as a gift for my son’s birthday. He loves to cook and has just returned from Vietnam. My son was inspired by Luke Nguyen’s tv series. This book is large, thick and heavy and beautifully made with great photos, lovely stories and delicious recipes!
What a book. I will be keeping this on the coffee table. Inspiring to see the way Luke travels and talks about the things he sees. The recipes are a bonus and the photos are very nice. I really enjoyed the tv show as well.
