The food experts took the selected dishes and recreated them for the book. Food stylists crafted and presented the dishes in the most elegant and exquisitely modern way to show international integration. The full recipes are presented alongside helpful photos are presented within the book.

The book was published at along with the third season of the Golden Spoon Contest; the launch was organized next to the main chef event to introduce the book “Golden Spoon - Vietnam Elite Culinary”. This became an opportunity for discussion among the attending food and beverage professionals from around the country.

Or guests could also try it themself and cook the recipes from the book.

  “You need choose only five dishes from this book and you can open your own business immediately because the information provided is not only very detailed and informative but also demonstrated with photos and pictures. The book represents the heart of the person making the book about Vietnamese cuisine,” commented Mr. Le Minh Viet, director of Phu Quy restaurant (Dong Nai province). He has read and tried the recipes of the book. Having the same opinion, Mr. Nguyen Vo Kim Khoi, deputy director of My Le Import Export Joint Stock Company, also shared that the book is a full of hard work and represents the passion of the writer. It is also evident there was a lot of time and money invested to find these new dishes, study about the food’s origin, present and provide the recipes at standards that not only chefs, but also amateur home cooks can replicate. Having the cuisine map of Vietnam in the book is illustrates the important contribution from both an individual and collective stance.

 Champion of the 2014 Golden Spoon contest Chef Tran Thai Bao, Deputy Chef of Caravelle Hotel, also addressed his delight when he read the book. He said it is the best cookbook that he has ever read because of its diverse content, description of the dishes, attractive presentation with detailed recipes and vivid photos. He was especially surprised to read the detailed statistics about the nutrition of each dish. Generally such books do not go into great quantitative detail about such information, and just stop at the description of the ingredients used.  He believes that the book is meaningful not only for professional chefs but also for anyone who loves cooking.
