LUKE NGUYEN RESTAURANTS: Red Lantern, Red Lantern on Riley, Fat Noodle bars in Sydney and Brisbane MEDIA: Contracted to SBS for Luke Nguyen's Vietnam, appears on MasterChef Vietnam, author of five cookbooks
Royal seafood amok | Luke Nguyen shares his recipe for traditional Cambodian seafood curry. It is deliciously spicy, with the sweetness of coconut cream, and the end result is soufflé-like. It is usually steamed in banana leaves, but here Luke makes great use of coconut shells.
And now another beautiful cook book from Australia's talented Nguyen siblings, this time Luke. Kudos to the publisher for allowing such fine detail and stunning printing. Sapa is north of Hanoi, and Nguyen pays a lovely tribute to this culture.
