Eating Viet Nam : Dispatches from a Blue Plastic Table

Author(s): Graham Holliday

Memoir

"Graham Holliday is one of the great gastronauts, a charming and intrepid try-anything explorer who makes the rest of us food writers feel hopelessly inadequate (and woefully underfed). You'd be a fool to delve into Viet Nam's spectacular cuisine without him as your guide."--Peter J. Lindberg, editor at large, Travel & Leisure A journalist takes us on a colorful and spicy gastronomic tour through Viet Nam in this entertaining, offbeat travel memoir

Growing up in a small town in central England, Graham Holliday wasn't keen on travel. But in his early twenties, he saw a picture of Ha N?i that sparked his curiosity and propelled him halfway across the globe. An ordinary guy who liked trying interesting food, he moved to the capital city and embarked on a quest to find real Vietnamese food. In Eating Vi?t Nam, he chronicles his odyssey in this enticing, unfamiliar land infused with sublime smells and tastes.

Funny, charming, and always delicious, Eating Vi?t Nam will inspire armchair travelers, those with curious palates, and everyone itching for a taste of adventure.
