Great Table Book Feb. 27 2012
By Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Songs of Sapa is not just about Sapa, but about Vietnam's cuisine all over. It is an excellent conversation starter and for those who like cooking, it has some great Vietnamese recipes. After being to Vietnam, it makes the remembrance even more pleasurable.

Deliciously Detailed Feb. 9 2010
By S. Garner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is such a lovely book! I love that there are oodles of pictures and that they are colorful, genuine, and don't seem overly styled or stiff. To me the highlight of the book is the personal insights Luke Nguyen shares about his relationship with the food and those who make it. I felt there were wonderful insights into Vietnamese culture which for me was my favorite.

I cannot comment yet on ease or accuracy of recipes because I haven't made anything. I'm still just enjoying the pictures and storytelling aspect of the book.

I'm now planning on purchasing Mr. Nguyen's other book!

Highly Recommended Dec 22 2009
By K. J. Peek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is far more than a cookbook. It is full of stories, anecdotes, and points of interest about the many culinary regions of Vietnam. Luke Nguyen writes in a casual yet engaging manner and not only makes you want to try his recipes, but get on the first plane out to Hanoi. Visually the book is gorgeous - it would be equally at home in the kitchen or on the coffee table in the loungroom. The recipes are easy to follow and most of the ingredients are readily available.

A very good cook book and has beautiful picture of Vietnam. I can easily learn how to cook vietnamese food just fellow the recipe. I recommend it.
Gorgeous book with authentic recipes Jan. 15 2013
By Food Lover! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of my favorite Vietnamese cookbook, not only does it have authentic recipes but also great photos. I love reading the stories of the different parts of Vietnam he's been too as well. I have tried at least one recipes from each region in the book, they turned out excellent and very similar to my mum's own recipes.
