He has long been considered Australia’s master of Vietnamese cuisine and on Oct 10th 2013 Luke Nguyen return to Sticky Rice Cooking School for the 3rd time in as many years. His visit coincides with the Adelaide Hills cooking school’s 5th anniversary and promises to be a memorable day of celebrations and great food and wine as guests enjoy a cooking demonstration by Luke and five star wines by Battle of Bosworth.
For Luke it is a great opportunity to visit the Adelaide Hills again and showcase his brand new book the Food of Vietnam. In The Food of Vietnam Nguyen has created his opus; a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated, endearing, compassionate and thoroughly researched ode to the food of his homeland.
Boasting over 350 pages of lavishly illustrated recipes, divided by region, The Food of Vietnam is part cookbook, part love letter to the people, the flavours and the culture of Vietnam.
