jennyema, Here in Sydney we have 3 main areas for Asian grocery shopping, Sydney Central Chinatown, Cabramatta, and Bankstown. Any Asian ingredient is available plus a plethora of restaurants of every Asian persuasion. Like you we are very lucky.

siniquezu, Mai Pham's book is an excellent starting point. I am ethnically Chinese, but from Vietnam. I bought the book because it seem like a very good reference and starting point for me. The thing that sealed the deal for me was looking at the chicken curry recipe, it's exactly how my mom makes it...figured with this much, the book has to be half way decent! It was especially helpful because she lists the Vietnamese name. I just know how to cook the basics: rice, soup, kho.

A lot of times, I will use her book and make dishes exactly as she directs, take it to my parent's house and then they "fix" it.

For example, there is a recipe in there for bahn beo, and I think she lists the wrong type of flour to make this dish. I made it exactly as she specified and and it turned out terrible. Dad said it was the wrong kind of flour.

I hope this was helpful.

I love Vietnamese food, especially pho. I'm proud to say that I've even made pho chicken soup. Very easy dish to make and it makes for a great meal in the cold winter months.

You can find tons of Vietnamese style recipes here: Free Recipes from Vietnam for Cooking Vietnamese Food

I've also included a link on my site that has links to my favorite Vietnamese recipes. Click on Other Recipes and scroll down to the Vietnam Section.
Food is awesome!

Update since the "first meal" back in July...

I have become quite the fan of the cuisine. Especially noodles with
fresh veggies and herbs, topped with some heavenly lemongrass or
other tasty marinade.

Dunno why, but it just resonates with my taste buds.... **** near
as good as pizza!
