YouTube culinary and lifestyle star Lewis draws on her philosophy of healthy and streamlined gourmet cooking in her debut cookbook. A California native, Lewis grew up learning classic Vietnamese techniques and dishes from her immigrant parents, and she presents many of these beloved family recipes here. The author is also a fan of fusion cooking, and many of her recipes draw on the culinary traditions of Hawaii, Mexico, India, Japan, and Korea to offer fresh takes on classic American food (think Kimchi Mac & Cheese, Udon Carbonara, and Lychee Rose Cheesecakes). Also present are some of the most popular recipes from her Honeysuckle YouTube channel, such as quicker beef pho and cold buster tea. Recipes incorporate many current food trends including matcha, bubble tea, grain bowls, and multipot cooking, and will appeal to home cooks seeking innovative contemporary fare that fits a variety of dietary needs.
VERDICT The array of fresh and lively dishes in this collection is perfectly suited to entertaining. Lewis has a massive fan base, and her first foray into print is sure to win her plenty of new devotees. This will be an in-demand title.
