*Pre-order* Di An: The Salty, Sour, Sweet and Spicy Flavors of Vietnamese Cooking with TwayDaBae (Tue Nguyen)


Expected September 17, 2024. Available for pre-order now. 

Popular social media super-chef Tue Nguyen (better known to many as @TwayDaBae) moved to the US with her family from Vietnam at the age of eight. When she realized she wanted to pursue a career in food, her parents didn’t support her choice, despite her mother being a wonderful cook and the inspiration behind many of Tue’s recipes. Still, Tue went to culinary school to pursue her dreams. Since then, she’s been featured in major publications like People, and her new restaurant, Didi in West Hollywood, has been covered by the Los Angeles TimesLA WeeklyThe InfatuationEater, and more.

Tue honors food and culture in everything she does, and 
Di An exemplifies that with its authentic salty, sour, sweet, and spicy recipes, many of which have been simplified for modern cooks. You’ll still find the bold flavors of lemongrass, garlic, shallots, chili peppers, and of course, fish sauce, but presented in a way that even beginner home cooks will be able to cook and enjoy at home. Just like Tue’s content for her growing legions of Instagram and TikTok fans, her cookbook is an invitation to share the love she has for her recipes including:

  • Shaking Beef
  • Braised Catfish
  • Lemongrass Chili Oil Noodles
  • Fish Sauce Wings
  • Bo Kho “Birria” Tacos
  • Bitter Melon Soup
  • Spicy Beef Noodles
  • Pho
  • And more!

In addition to delicious recipes, you’ll find tips and tricks on entertaining, making the perfect essential sauces and condiments, and so much more to elevate even the most beginner home chef’s cooking.
