Hi, and welcome to the site!!!!

I too love Vietnamese food - the flavors of soy sauce, cilantro, and lime with a bit of hot chili sauce is a favorite combination. Below is a link - it looks like there are just 2 things listed - but if you click on each of those there will be plenty of recipes to puruse - enjoy!!

That's what I did Andy - I'm not sure why I just gave a link to the first one - here are tons more for you - tons of Vietnamese recipes listed on google

Here is the main page to Google - put it in your favorites so it's always there. Google Homepage

All I did was type in Vietnamese, recipes

If you are looking for chicken dishes then type in Vietnamese chicken, recipes

Or Vietnamese vegetables, recipes

Vietnamese rice, recipes

If you get to a library or bookstore, one of the best cookbooks of any kind is "Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table" by Mia Pham.

jennyema, I had a look at the following site "Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table" and had a look at several recipes there. My son's wife is Viet, my son speaks fluent Viet and they currently live in Cambodia. The recipes and the ingredients look very genuine. Especially the Goi Cuon, the accompanying sauce (closest I have seen in a Viet cookbook) can make or break this dish.
A lot of Viet cookbooks are not written by native Viets and tend to take a few shortcuts and when I have presented my Viet cooking from such books to the relatives I have been always given pointers to correct them. They are not backward coming forward.

If the rest of the recipes in her book are as good as what the samples offered appear it should be excellent. I certainly will be taking a further look.

According to what I've read, this is supposedly a great Vietnamese recipe cookbook:

The Classic Cuisine of Vietnam by Bach Ngo
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...19169?v=glance
(unfortunately, it is out of print but you can buy it used.)

Wayne,

Mia Pham immigrated to the US with the fall of Vietnam in '75. She owns a restaurant in CA now.

I live in a neighborhood with a plethora of vietnamese restaurants and have fallen hard for the cuisine.

This is a lovely book with both a disucssion of ingredients and recipes and beautiful pictures, but a narrative of her subsequent travels back to her homeland. It is supposedly very authentic.

I am lucky also to live very near an enormous asian market where nearly every ingredient specified is readily available.

Here's an Amazon review: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...s&n=507846
