Ever-Green Vietnamese: Super-Fresh Recipes by Andrea Nguyen
PRE-ORDER: APRIL 25, 2023 RELEASE!
Vietnamese food has always been rooted in the plant kingdom with a little meat and seafood playing supporting roles. The traditional Viet table incorporates layers of vegetables and fresh herbs, piled toweringly on platters for customizing each glorious bite.
In Ever-Green Vietnamese, Andrea Nguyen details how cooks in her home country draw on their natural resourcefulness and Buddhist traditions to showcase the wide array of plants, in flavorful and comforting recipes. It is filled with cultural context, loads of instruction and practical tips, in true Andrea Nguyen form.
Naming her new book Ever-green activates its multiple meanings: In addition to proposing vegetable-forward flavor into our kitchens, Ever-green reflects an enduring, positive outlook.
A plant-focused philosophy is also sustainable - in committing to more plants and less meat and you'll be doing good for the planet and eating remarkable food.
A total win-win.
