Description

Indochine sees Luke Nguyen revisit his beloved Vietnam and seek out the food and cultural remnants of this former French colonial empire. On his regular visits to Vietnam today, Luke is often struck by the appearance of people wearing berets, speaking French and the aromas of coffee and butter emanating from cafes and patisseries. The recipes and accompanying stories showcase the French influence upon Vietnamese history and cuisine.

Against a backdrop of grand colonial hotels, bars, restaurants and terraces, to private estates dressed in antiques and textiles of the period, Luke talks to chefs, bakers and family members to extract the very essence of French-Vietnamese cuisine. From coffee and croissants at breakfast to high tea and supper, Luke unravels the origins of Vietnamese dishes such as pho, which began life as a 'pot au feu', and experiments with new versions of traditional Vietnamese food.  Indochine appeals to lovers of French, Vietnamese food and travel alike.

  • From the author of best-selling cookbook Secrets of the Red Lantern and The Songs of Sapa
  • Vibrant food photography shot entirely in Vietnam.
  • More than 100 regional recipes showcasing Vietnam's French culinary roots

Luke Nguyen opened his award-winning restaurant, Red Lantern, in Australia in 2002 with his sister Pauline and her partner chef Mark Jensen. Luke's TV work includes Food Safari and Heat in the Kitchen, and he currently hosts his own cooking show, Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam.
