From the Book's Foreword by renowned chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain
"Bobby Chinn, chef, long time resident of Southeast Asia, television personality, hustler, International Man of Mystery, and now author, is the first guy you want to know in Hanoi if you want to find where to get the good stuff to eat, how to make it, and why it's made that way. . . . what Bobby doesn't know about Southeast Asian food is not worth knowing."
