About the Author
Paul B. Kennedy has worked in the restaurant industry for 30 years--bringing delicious meals and welcoming environments together to create fond memories. Paul studied hotel management and received a degree in culinary arts from Johnson & Wales University. He then moved to New York where he established himself in the restaurant world while honing a passion for writing and photography. In 2018, with only a backpack and a sense of adventure, Paul headed off to Vietnam. He has traveled extensively around the country ever since, documenting Vietnamese food culture and capturing its flavors. In addition to writing, cooking and traveling, Paul is passionate about teaching and volunteers his time to help others learn and grow. This is his first cookbook.
"Paul B. Kennedy's Vietnamese Food and Food Culture is a portal to an authentic culinary experience. Spiced with proverbs, cultural insights, fascinating facts, and gorgeous photography, the book is as much a coffee table showpiece as a working cookbook, offering a wide range of dishes from the north to the south of the country [...] Highly recommended." --Andrew X.
