Cookbook Signed by Author, Tote Bag and Three Tân Tân Vietnamese Sauces
In Ever-Green Vietnamese: Super-Fresh Recipes Starring Plants from Land and Sea, cooking teacher and James Beard-award winning author Andrea Nguyen celebrates the central role that herbs and produce play in Vietnamese cooking. Filled with cultural context, practical advice and the approachable instruction that Nguyen is known for, Ever-Green Vietnamese provides inspiration for anyone looking to incorporate Vietnamese recipes into their plant-based eating. Look for strictly vegetarian recipes like Steamed Banh Mi Lettuce Wraps and Twice-Fried Lemongrass Tofu, as well as recipes that make the most out of minimal amounts of meat, like Roast Chicken and Broccoli with Nước Chấm Vinaigrette and Shaking Salmon.
For the farmers’ market fashionista, this gift set includes Andrea Nguyen’s Ever-Green Vietnamese herb tote bag. Designed by Oakland artist Jules Butt, this sturdy tote features playful illustrations of the variety of herbs used in Vietnamese cooking with their names in both Vietnamese and English.
To help stock the pantry with essentials, this set also includes a trio of Peanut Sauce, Hoisin Sauce and Vegan “Fish” Sauce from Tân Tân, a Vietnamese family-run business launched from the Tân Tân Cafe & Delicatessen in Beaverton, Oregon.
