Query - Charles Phan cookbooks

beetlebug | Jan 21, 201502:54 PM

I've looked at both his cookbooks:

Vietnamese Home Cooking

Slanted Door

And, they are both very pretty and the food looks delicious. I've never bought them because realistically, I don't know if I would actually cook with them.

But, I am going to the Slanted Door for lunch this weekend. And, I know, if I love the food, I'm going to be tempted to buy signed copies of one or both his books.

So cookbook hounds, what are your thoughts about his books? Do the recipes work? Are they time consuming? Which book do you prefer and why? Or what don't you like about either book?
