HASH(0x9fc69690) out of 5 stars Great Table Book Feb. 27 2012
By Amazon Customer - 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.

HASH(0x9fc73eac) out of 5 stars Deliciously Detailed Feb. 9 2010
By SusanWu - 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!

HASH(0x9fc73fcc) out of 5 stars 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.

If you have seen Luke's show on the Cooking Channel then you can understand the varied food of Vietnam. The recipes cover all of the main dishes and showcase the regional dishes that have made us enjoy his show!

If your looking for new cuisine to try or are looking for something specific Luke has it in this book. He is a great chef and this book illustrates the food over all!

Format: Hardcover
This cook book is everything I needed! Growing up with Vietnamese food, I've always wanted to learn to cook them myself. My mom didn't have recipes but all the recipes I need are in this book. Tastes just like my mom's cooking and sometimes even better or I've found recipes I didn't hear of before. Thank goodness I found this book!
