Salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and spicy: these are the flavorful tenets of Vietnamese cuisine. This exhilarating culinary culture is rich but light, deeply flavorful but made with simple ingredients, and filling while also easy to prepare. That's the message that authors Van Tran and Anh Vu wanted to bring to a hungry crowd when they opened their banh mi stall in London, an international city that surprisingly lacked the tastes of the authors' childhoods in Hanoi. As their business expanded, The Vietnamese Market Cookbook followed. The recipes are simpler than you might think but explode with the purest flavors of vegetables, seafood, lean meats, spices, chiles, and treasured Vietnamese condiments like fish sauce. Old and new favorites collide: Asparagus and Crabmeat Soup, Papaya Salad with Crispy Anchovies, Claypot Chicken with Ginger, Sea Bass Carpaccio, Kumquat Jasmine Iced Tea, and Crème Caramel. From chapters like “Sweetness and Happiness” to “Spiciness and Adventure” and “Saltiness and Healing,” this lusciously filling book will bring a little bit of Vietnam into your home.

Shu Han Lee moved to London from Singapore as a student. Homesick and hungry, she started teaching herself to cook the food she'd grown up with - Singaporean and Malaysian dishes, with a strong Chinese influence from her Hokkien Chinese mother. These recipes, from her mother's sesame oil chicken to ox cheek and venison rendang, are ones you will want to make time and time again.
There are perfect midweek suppers rustled up in less time than it takes to order a takeaway, and healthier and better tasting at that: fennel and minced pork stir fry, fried hor fun noodles with kale and beansprouts or tom yum soup with mussels. For weekends, there are more adventurous projects: learn how to make your own steamed buns, egg noodles, or BBQ sambal lemon sole - a whole fish barbequed on banana leaves.
Although these are Southeast Asian recipes, Shu's seasonal approach to the very best of UK produce is reflected throughout this book: from Brussels sprouts with smashed garlic and oyster sauce to no-churn rhubarb and condensed milk ice cream.
There are also recipes that Shu has picked up on her travels throughout Southeast Asia, such as Vietnamese caramel pork ribs, Thai baked glass noodles with prawns and black pepperand Burmese chickpea tofu with fish sauce, lime and honey dressing.
In this book to accompany the TV series, stunning photography and Gordon's inspirational travel stories combine to depict a richly-textured portrait of a continent. With breathtaking landscapes as his backdrop, Gordon is welcomed into local communities and shown the age-old traditions and secrets that underpin their native dishes. He meets characters with fascinating lives, shares delicious meals in beautiful surroundings, and is invited to take part in the customs and rituals of the land – venturing into paddy fields to observe the rice worship, accompanying huntsmen on their quest for frogs and honey, navigating the inky night-time ocean for moonlit fishing, and cooking up a feast in a colossal Malay temple.
Gordon has devised over 100 new recipes to showcase the very essence of these cultures and cuisines. There are unique tastes and styles from across the region, with a wealth of enticing ingredients: from tangy limes and the earthy scent of sesame oil, to floral jasmine and lush green banana leaves. Don't let unfamiliar recipe names put you off – Tom Yam Goong Nam Khon is a divine hot and sour prawn soup, Ngah Poh Kai Fan a slow-cooked clay-pot chicken and Karipap the Malay answer to a Cornish pastie.
And there are recipes that even wary cooks will recognise – Chicken Satay, Pad Thai, Red and Green Curries – though look closer and each recipe has something extra, an authenticity that comes from taking the time to understand the origins of the dish. Gordon proves that the real thing is easy to replicate at home, whether its a single spice that makes all the difference, marinating a cut of meat for 12 unhurried hours, or being brave enough to try a key new ingredient such as kaffir lime leaves or lemongrass (readily available in supermarkets but often overlooked).
Let Gordon open your eyes with his vivid portrayal of a magnificent continent, and enjoy some of the very greatest Asian dishes in your own kitchen.
