Award-winning chef and restaurateur Charles Phan opened The Slanted Door in San Francisco in 1995, inspired by the food of his native Vietnam. Since then, The Slanted Door has grown into a world-class dining destination, and its accessible, modern take on classic Vietnamese dishes is beloved by diners, chefs, and critics alike. The Slanted Door is a love letter to the restaurant, its people, and its food. Featuring stories in addition to its most iconic recipes, The Slanted Door both celebrates a culinary institution and allows home cooks to recreate its excellence.

Reservation made for Sunday! From the food to the wine and tea service to dessert, this place looks like a class act! The only recipe I might try to recreate at home is the Lemon Meringue Tarts.

Lots of good recipes in this book - including some ideas stolen from French cuisine - and you can find most of the ingredients in Ottawa Vietnamese grocery stores. So far, my family liked (1) stir fry green beans, (2)wok charred eggplant (3) Vietnamese chicken salad (4) shrimp and chayotte stirfry (5) shaking beef. Lots of interesting anecdotes by the author about setting up a restaurant in San Francisco, plus many photos. I like books that show a photo of what I'm trying to cook!
