A hot bowl of soup always seems fitting no matter the season. A hot bowl of soup is warming in the winter. While a bowl of sweet and sour soup is cooling in the summer. The longer you let the flavours infuse, the better the soup is.

From The Official Press Release

In this unique and inviting introduction to a vibrant cuisine, Secrets from My Vietnamese Kitchen offers more than 50 easy-to-make recipes from bestselling novelist and former restaurateur Kim Thúy. Seven extraordinary women, Kim joined by her mother and five aunts, share their stories and their culinary secrets, accompanied by stunning photographs, charming descriptions and evocative extracts from Kim’s novels.

Between careers as a lawyer and an acclaimed novelist, Kim Thúy ran a celebrated restaurant called Ru de Nam in Montreal. Now, in her first cookbook, Kim combines her beautiful storytelling style with simple and wonderful recipes that are full of flavour: surprising yet comforting, and easy enough for every day. Welcoming us into her close-knit circle, she introduces us to her mother and five aunts, each with her story, each with her secrets, told through the food of the country they had to leave, Vietnam.

Starting with easily-prepared base ingredients of sauces, quick pickled vegetables and toasted rice flour, we move on to soups, sautés, vegetables, grilled foods, desserts and more. Sample recipes include Stuffed Squash Soup; Vermicelli Bowls; Caramel Pork; Calamari, Pork and Pineapple Stir-fry; Fried Lemongrass Fish; and Vietnamese Tapioca and Banana. Also, in collaboration with sommelier Michelle Bouffard, Kim suggests wine pairings for these Vietnamese dishes.

Kim says that Vietnamese often display their affection more easily with food than with words. This exquisite book deliciously demonstrates that every meal is an opportunity to show love, and to be grateful for those who sit down to eat with us.

California Lunch Bowl Recipe

  • Author: Allison Day
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: lunch bowl
  • Method: lunch bowl
  • Cuisine: pacific northwest

Description

While writing this book, I finally ventured to California, and it became a new “happy place” for me. Gjusta, a bakery and restaurant in Venice Beach, California, has a grain bowl that played with temperature, texture, and flavour in a way I’d never experienced before and needed to recreate immediately upon my return home. The soft egg in this bowl, like the one I enjoyed at Gjusta, marries with the lightest, clearest dressing for an expression of modern healthy eating that I believe anyone can get behind.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (page 241) or quinoa (page 242), preferably warm
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1⁄4 bulb fennel, shaved
  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp minced fresh red Thai chili
  • 2 Tbsp dukkah (page 168)
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. For the poached eggs, fill a small skillet two-thirds full of water. Add the white vinegar, bring the water to a boil, and crack in the eggs. Immediately remove from the heat and cover for 7 minutes. If you are taking this to go, use a hard-boiled egg (page 238) instead of a poached egg.
  2. To assemble, to serving bowls, add the rice, romaine, fennel, and avocado. Season with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, and chili. Top with the dukkah and cilantro. Remove the egg from the water with a slotted spoon, draining as much water as possible; place on top of the rice. Toss, allowing the yolk to become part of the dressing, and enjoy. If you are packing this to go, assemble your bowl in a container replacing the poached egg with a peeled hard-boiled egg. Seal and refrigerate until you are ready to take it with you, and keep it refrigerated at work or chilled with a cooler pack until you are ready to eat.

Notes

KEEP SLICED AVOCADO FRESH
To keep avocado from browning, concentrate the olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the avocado flesh, and then sprinkle dukkah over top to cover. This assembly trick keeps oxidation to a minimum.

Pressure Cooker Finger-Licking Ribs in a Flash

February 16, 2018
: 4 TO 6 SERVINGS

Melt-in- your-mouth ribs that cook in 15 minutes? Yes, it’s possible! With a pressure cooker, you can cook delicious food in double-quick time.

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • 6–8 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey or pure maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 31/2 lb pork back ribs, cut into two- rib portions
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
Directions
  • Step 1 Place onion, minced garlic, tomatoes, vinegar, honey (if using), paprika, salt, and pepper in your pressure cooker. Stir to combine. Add ribs and toss until evenly coated in sauce.
  • Step 2 Lock the lid of the cooker and bring to pressure over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, just to maintain even pressure, and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Step 3 Remove from the heat and let the pressure drop naturally. This will take about 15 minutes.
  • Step 4 Transfer the ribs to a serving platter. Sprinkle with green onions.
  • Step 5 Using a spoon or a ladle, remove and discard fat from the sauce.
  • Step 6 Pour remaining sauce into a small bowl to serve alongside the ribs.
  • Step 7 **If you’re cooking this on an electric burner, it’s best to remove the pressure cooker from the burner once it has reached full pressure and then turn down the element and wait a moment for it to cool before returning the pressure cooker to the heat to continue cooking.
