A cookbook devoted to the beloved Vietnamese sandwich, with 50 recipes ranging from classic fillings to innovative modern combinations.

Created by Vietnamese street vendors a century or so ago, banh mi is a twist on the French snack of pâté and bread that is as brilliant as it is addictive to eat. Who can resist the combination of crisp baguette, succulent filling, and toppings like tangy daikon and carrot pickles, thin chile slices, refreshing cucumber strips, and pungent cilantro sprigs? You’ll have ample opportunities to customize your sandwich with filling options such as grilled pork, roast chicken, and “the special”—a delectable combination of garlicky pork, liver pâté, and Vietnamese cold-cuts.

Opening a new realm of flavor for anyone tired of standard sandwich fare, The Banh Mi Handbook presents more than fifty recipes and numerous insights for crafting a wide range of sandwiches, from iconic classics to modern innovations, including: 

Crispy Drunken Chicken
Shrimp in Caramel Sauce
Grilled Lemongrass Pork
Beef and Curry Sliders
Coconut Curry Tofu
Lettuce Wrap Banh Mi

Respected food writer Andrea Nguyen’s simple, delicious recipes for flavor-packed fillings, punchy homemade condiments, and crunchy, colorful pickled vegetables bring the very best of Vietnamese street food to your kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Better than I expected! As an avid 'foodie' fan, I first heard about this book on a cooking site, prior to its release. I printed off the 'pre-release' recipe (grilled lemongrass pork), made it, LOVED it!, and anxiously awaited the book's release. Well, the other day I was at my local Indigo store, and got to have a look through the pages?.bought it, and promptly went to my car to write out a grocery list of ingredients I would need to make about five of the recipes inside! In the first two days I've made: Garlic Pepper Tenderloin, Chicken Sausage Patties, Viet Home-Style doner kabob, and several condiments
