|My new cookbook: The Banh Mi Handbook by Andrea Nguyen.|
Wanting to try making these simple and delicious sandwiches, I bought the book in the photo. Author Nguyen, who has also written several other cookbooks, offers recipes for the bread, the filling, the condiments, and the pickles, and a basic formula for putting them all together. Here's my first effort:
|I assembled our sandwiches on crusty French rolls. The pickled carrots and pork roast were home made.|
The rolls & pâté were from Trader Joe. I hollowed each roll out a bit and
lightly toasted it as the instructions suggest.
