Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong
Luke’s travels start in China where he explores the centuries-old traditions of the Yunnan Province. His journey takes him to Myanmar where he uncovers some of the country’s unique flavors, and then on to Northern Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and finally Vietnam, Luke’s homeland and the location of this mighty river’s floodplains. Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong, the cookbook, contains over 70 recipes that celebrate well-known dishes as well as lesser-known regional delicacies. Sample chargrilled pork grilled in bamboo from Thailand, steamed lemongrass and dill fish from Laos, tea-infused sesame dumplings from China or for the more adventurous, clay-pot cola chicken from Cambodia.
With heartwarming stories, breathtaking location photography and stunning images of all the dishes featured in the show, Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong is a must-have cookbook that will be treasured and referred to for many years to come. Author: Luke Nguyen (RH/Hardie Grant, 2015, HC, 272 pp)
