Summary
"In Vietnamese, "AN" means "TO EAT," a happy coincidence, since the An family has built an award-winning restaurant empire-- including the renowned celebrity favorite Crustacean Beverly Hills--that has been toasted by leading food press, including Bon Appetit, Gourmet, InStyle and the Food Network. Helene An, executive chef and matriarch of the House of An, is hailed as the "mother of fusion" and was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute for her signature style that brings together Vietnamese, French, and California- fresh influences. Now her daughter Jacqueline tells the family story and shares her mother's delicious and previously "secret" recipes, including "Mama's" Beef Pho, Drunken Crab, and Oven-Roasted Lemongrass Chicken. Helene's transformation from pampered "princess" in French Colonial Vietnam, to refugee then restaurateur, and her journey from Indochina's lush fields to family kitchen gardens in California are beautifully chronicled throughout the book. The result is a fascinating peek at a lost world, and the evolution of an extraordinary cuisine. The 100 recipes in An: To Eat feature clean flavors, simple techniques, and unique twists that could only have come from Helene's personal story-- provided by publisher
