Bring a taste of Vietnamese cuisine to your home with 100 fresh, authentic and delicious recipes from the owner of The Little Viet Kitchen, London.
Born in a small village in the south of Vietnam, Thuy was surrounded by food and she grew up amidst livestock and fresh produce, with a wonderful variety of fruits, morning markets with freshly picked vegetables and the smells of traditional street food. It's these memories that are the foundation of her food philosophy and culinary creations, and her landmark London restaurant, The Little Viet Kitchen, brings this true taste of Vietnamese cuisine to Islington. It is here that Thuy, along with her husband Dave, has created a dining experience combining the best of restaurateur precision and flair with the comforts of the home kitchen.
Embracing all elements of Vietnamese cuisine, Thuy's food enhances and showcases the natural textures and flavours of the organic ingredients she uses. Having moved to the UK aged seven, Thuy has a distinctive approach to Vietnamese cooking in the West, with an authentic core knowledge of Vietnamese culture and a deft understanding of the London restaurant and foodie scene, all of which is brought to life in these pages.
Offering a fresh approach and insight into how to make the best of classic dishes and Vietnamese family favourites, it is Thuy's expertise and memories that are the heart of each and every recipe. This book delves into Thuy's journey from Vietnam to England, celebrating her love of Vietnamese cooking, culture and way of life and tantalizing the reader's tastebuds alongside their imaginations, turning everyone's kitchen into a Little Viet Kitchen.
Beautiful photography by the brilliant David Loftus accompanies each recipe, all styled by Thuy herself.

How to use this Chilli & Lemongrass Sauce?
Light Marinade: ideal for the subtlety of grilled fish, but tastes great with any meat. For best results, marinate for 15-30 minutes before grilling, but if you are really short of time, simply add a thin layer to your meat 5 minutes before you take it off the heat.
Stir-fry Sauce: Bring out the flavours of your stir-fry by adding one teaspoon of sauce per portion, adding soy and sugar according to taste. Salad
Dressing: A great way to spice up your salad. Mix together with balsamic vinegar or freshly squeezed lime juice with sesame or olive oil, to give your salad an awesome kick!
Condiment: Try adding it to a cheese board or an antipasti platter when entertaining friends and family.
Dipping Sauce: Make bread more exciting; make olives interesting; make carrot sticks intriguing; make chips even tastier!
