Lemongrass and Lime: New Vietnamese cooking from Bam-bou

Lemongrass and Lime: New Vietnamese cooking from Bam-bou

by Mogens Tholstrup

from the publisher

This is an introduction to modern Vietnamese cooking, as pioneered by chef Mark Read at Bam-bou in London. Recipes range from the traditional such as sour green mango salad, baked fillet of lemon sole in banana leaf, or pho-bo soup to the divine decadence of crispy quail with watercress and tamarind or chocolate and lemongrass mousse. Due to the nature of the cooking these recipes are generally low in fat.

A Vietnamese Cookbook from one of my favourite restaurants when living in London a few years ago - Bambou. I used to frequent quite a bit so was delighted to have their cookbook with all those yummy recipes. Also fantastic for inspiration.
