My wife is from Hanoi and we spend a lot of time with her family who still lives there. We find a taste of Hanoi in this book, something most celebrated cookbooks sold in the West are lack of. Oftentimes, Vietnamese cookbooks are written by people who are not from Vietnam or who spend most of their lives away from the country and thus, their interpretation of Vietnamese culture, philosophy, cuisine and way of life can be distant from what's really going on there. The authors of this book are much more rooted with their Hanoian origin; their recipes as well as philosophy and point of view when it comes to cooking Vietnamese food are much closer to what I find with my in-laws in Hanoi.
Perhaps the biggest question in bringing a cuisine outside of its country of origin is how to balance authenticity, adaptability and creativity. In this book, authenticity comes from the philosophy and tastebuds that the authors/chefs developed through their Vietnamese upbringing. Adaptability comes naturally from the fact that they spent their adulthood in some of the most diverse metropolitans in the world - New York and London - and the authors are open-minded enough to tweak their recipes to include ingredients and way of cooking to a lifestyle that most of us can identify with. Creativity shows through the recipes and the story-telling - in this book, the stories are as tasteful as the recipes themselves. What I appreciate the most is how they understand, respect and give credits to the way the locals have been doing and tell readers when they bring in some change.
After all, Vietnamese women never consult a cookbook when they cook. Vietnamese food is about sensibility and balance. Each family, each street vendor can offer you a different version of the same classic dish, all of which are balanced, fresh and tasteful. The approach to cooking Vietnamese food in this book, which is all about reaching the subtle balance of the five tastes (add a dash of fish sauce to find the sixth taste - umami - as the authors suggest), is what my wife, my mother-in-law, and the best Vietnamese unnamed chefs I know have been doing instinctively.
Good luck in your culinary adventure and I hope you find wonder like I did.
Thank goodness for the internet and Amazon!
