A collection of recipes from successful Vietnamese restaurant Red Lantern, this book is the story of the Nguyen family as told by daughter Pauline - documenting their escape from Vietnam and eventual resettlement in Australia.
Secrets of the Red Lantern is an absolutely stunning book, the recipes are scrumptious and so is the food photography. The story behind the recipes and the story of the author's family history are amazing and gut wrenching. What a wonderful mix of family history and Vietnamese recipes, truly one of the most beautiful and unique recipe books out there. From the material cover of the book, to the personal photography and candid memoirs this is definitely one to add to your collection. - Matthew Hammond
