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 Appétit, 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.

»Man glaubt immer, das Leben von Einwanderern sei nur schwer. Und vergisst dabei, dass ihre Erfahrungen auch wunderbare, lustige, bewegende und oft ganz absurde Momente umschließen ...« Die kleine Kim ist zehn, als ihre Familie aus Vietnam fliehen muss. Auf einer abenteuerlichen Odyssee ­gelangen sie übers Meer, vegetieren in überfüllten Flüchtlingslagern, finden schließlich im Westen, im fernen Kanada eine neue Heimat. Wenn der Schock der Fremdheit überwältigend ist, lässt sich die Welt nur über die Sinne erschließen. An Klängen, Farben, Gerüchen entfalten sich deshalb die Erinnerungsbilder, an denen Kim Thúy dreißig Jahre später der Spur ihres Lebens nachgeht – eine lose Kette, mäandernd zwischen Einst und Jetzt, Krieg und Frieden, Verstörung und überraschendem Glück. Da ist die Kindheit im goldenen Käfig einer großbürgerlichen Familie in Saigon. Die Flucht im lichtlosen Unterdeck eines maroden Schiffes. Ein Kinderarmband aus rosa Plastik, in dem die Eltern Edelsteine schmuggelten. Der erste Anblick von Schnee in Québec, der Krach, den fremde Stimmen machen, auch wenn sie freundlich sind. Die Komik zahlloser Missverständ­nisse. Die Wiederbegegnung mit der alten Heimat, in die man als Fremde zurück­kehrt. Mit selbstverständlicher Meisterschaft hat Kim Thúy einen überraschenden, ganz und gar persönlichen Lebensroman einer Emigration geschrieben. In unvergesslichen, sinnlichen Bildern erzählt er von Flucht, Vertreibung und Neubeginn, von Schmerz und Lust der Erinnerung und dem täglichen Glück, sein Leben zu wagen.

Asian grandmothers — whether of Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Vietnamese, or Indian descent — are the keepers of the cultural, and culinary, flame. Their mastery of delicious home-cooked dishes and comfort food makes them the ideal source for this cookbook. Author Pat Tanumihardja has assembled 130 tantalizing dishes from real Chinese fried rice to the classic Filipino Chicken Adobo to the ultimate Japanese comfort dish Oyako donburi. This is hearty food, brightly flavored, equally good to look at and eat. Flavors range from soy and ginger to hot chiles, fragrant curries, and tart vinegars. The author has translated all of the recipes to work in modern home kitchens. Many of them have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations without written recipes, and some appear in tested and written form for the first time. An exhaustive Asian Pantry glossary explains the ingredients, from the many kinds of rice and curries to unfamiliar but flavorful vegetables.

"Lynne Anderson's portraits of recent immigrant families capture a crucial truth about how real food connects us to our culture, our memories, and to one another. This is an important book." —Alice Waters, Chez Panisse Restaurant "Everyone loves talking about food. In this remarkable book, Lynne Anderson lets recent immigrants to America speak in their own words about the foods they most loved from their homelands. Her cook-storytellers use recipes for cherished foods as a way to recall childhood memories, the events that caused them to emigrate, and their efforts to assimilate—the bitter along with the sweet. For a delicious introduction to the immigrant experience in America, I can't think of a better starting point than Breaking Bread." —Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat and Food Politics "Good ol' home cooking that's not chicken and apple pie. A feast of stories and flavors." Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and the Bone Setter's Daughter "What's so lovely to me about this book is hearing the actual voices of the people and the unpredictable way their conversations about food capture life issues and truths that extend far beyond the kitchen. More than ever it seems critical to be finding and celebrating what we have in common and the connections between people."—Nikki Silva, co-author of Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR's The Kitchen Sisters "Breaking Bread throws open a delightful window on the immigrant kitchen in America, capturing the voices, traditions and--yes!--recipes of a couple dozen different food cultures in a single volume." —Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food "In 25 deeply moving first-person accounts from a wide range of immigrant families, each one sensitively introduced by the author, Lynne Anderson takes us straight to the heart of our common humanity. Sharing food and stories are what bind us all across differences in time, space culture, gender and identity. Apart from being an important cultural document, Breaking Bread is a rich, wisdom-packed experience for the scholar, for the casual reader and for all cooks who demand more than just recipes."—Niloufer Ichaporia King, author of My Bombay Kitchen
