Enter to win one of 5 copies!

Master the art of traditional Vietnamese cooking thanks to Charles Phan—the award-winning chef behind San Francisco’s Slanted Door restaurant—and his debut cookbook “Vietnamese Home Cooking”. In it, Phan focuses on fundamental techniques and ingredients, proving that with a basic understanding, Vietnamese home cooking can be as easy to make as American, French, or Italian cuisine.


Recipes like Grilled Pork Chops with Sweet Lemongrass Marinade and Steamed Whole Fish with Ginger, Scallions, and Soy, are only made better by Phan’s clear instructions, tips, and personal tales from the kitchen.
