A cookbook devoted to the beloved Vietnamese sandwich, with 50 recipes ranging from classic fillings to innovative modern combinations. The Banh Mi Handbook opens a new realm of flavour for cooks who are tired of the same old sandwiches. Who can resist the addictive combination of crispy baguette plus fabulous fillings, such as peppery grilled chicken, lemongrass pork, and coconut curry tofu, and toppings like tangy daikon and carrot pickles? Banh mi are the epitome of delicious street food, and their popularity has skyrocketed in the US in recent years. Acclaimed food writer Andrea Nguyen's simple recipes for proteins, condiments, pickles, and more are a great introduction for those looking to venture into Vietnamese cuisine but who are intimidated by complicated recipes.
