I love new cookbooks! This new adventure takes me back to my Bay Area Vietnamese roots, yet it’s not the same. All the recipes have a familiar ping, but with a new modern tone. The majority of the recipes have few ingredients, but are focused on the quality of the ingredients. This is my flagship recipe trial. Spicy lemongrass soup. I’m not exactly sure if I made it correctly, being as my version doesn’t look anything like the picture in the book. I changed a few things to make it easier for myself, which may have been why mine doesn’t look a thing like the example. Instead of making the fish stock, I just bought some. easy way out, I know. I don’t know about you… but I’m not exactly sure where I would find pounds of fish carcasses. oh yea, i’ll just hop on over to Fred Meyer and get some fish carcasses. Despite making a few changes, it turned out pretty good! Now onto the next recipe! Wish me luck!
