Helene An and Jacqueline An, An: To Eat – Recipes and Stories from a Vietnamese Family Kitchen
Few successful restaurant groups have as complex and intriguing of a backstory as the House of An does. Now the matriarch of the restaurant empire, Helene An’s life took her from the luxurious highs of French Colonial Vietnam to the lows of life as a refugee, a journey explored by her daughter Jacqueline in their new cookbook, An: To Eat. Featuring one hundred recipes highlighting the signature Vietnamese–Californian cuisine that has made the restaurant group the talk of the town, An: To Eat offers readers a taste of home cooking informed by multi-generational family history.
