I spent the weekend working on a school fundraiser so unfortunately I didn’t have much time to cook this weekend. I do, however, have an interesting update. Over a year ago I wrote a post about local favorite Charles Phan and my desire for him to produce a cookbook. Chef Phan’s Slanted Door restaurant is a local institution that brought some exotic new flavors to the bay area many years ago. I am happy to report that last week Vietnamese Home Cooking came out (the first of several cookbooks I am excited about coming out this month!). I don’t actually have it in my possession but all signs point to this being a must have for anybody interested in Vietnamese cooking. Can’t wait!
