Andrea Nguyen

Andrea Nguyen is the James Beard Award winning author of "The Pho Cookbook." She also edited the IACP award-winning "Unforgettable," the biography cookbook about Paula Wolfert. Her sixth cookbook, "Vietnamese Food Any Day," was released in February 2019. She has contributed to numerous publications, including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Lucky Peach, Food & Wine and Cooking Light.


"Andrea is a dear friend of Milk Street for so many reasons, but two in particular. She knows her stuff (she was born and lived in Saigon). And she is a brash, no-nonsense cook and colleague who tells it like it is (and isn’t afraid to tell us when we get it wrong). In many ways, she exemplifies the best of the new home cooking. It's a bit of this, a bit of that, and a lot of whatever works. With a firm foundation in what is authentic married to a love of what is practical, Andrea is the cook we all want to be." — Christopher Kimball
