Editorial Reviews

"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
