The Red Boat Fish Sauce Cookbook:
Beloved Recipes from the Family Behind the Purest Fish Sauce
By: Cuong Pham, Tien Nguyen, Diep Tran
The Official Red Boat Cookbook
You wouldn't expect a condiment made of anchovies to gain cult status—but that's exactly what Red Boat Fish Sauce did, earning praise from food titans like David Chang, Andrea Nguyen, and Ruth Reichl. But what's even more incredible is the story behind its success and founder, Cuong Pham. After a year-long journey to America from Vietnam after the war, he found himself working for Steve Jobs at Apple in 1984. But, all the while, he missed the tastes of his childhood—what the grocery store had just wasn't it—and set out to find what he and his family remembered so acutely.
