VietNamNet – A book from Vietnam was presented the Best Asian Cuisine Book in the World at the “10th Gourmand World Cookbook Awards” in Sweden, with 402 attendees from 30 countries.
The book, “Didier Corlou’s Vietnamese Cuisine”, is the work of French chef Didier Corlou of the Sofitel Metropole Hanoi Hotel.
With text and recipes by Chef Didier, photos by JF Mallet, translation by E. Andre, coordination by Nguyen Thanh Van and glossary and traditional cuisines by Nguyen Dinh Rao, the book is published in French and English.

He greatly contributed to the promotion of Vietnamese cuisine in gastronomy festivals in Singapore in July 2003, Philadelphia in April 2004, and Bangkok in June 2004.
He has also given lectures on Vietnamese gastronomy to foreigners in Vietnam, and published the books on "Pho" (noodle soup served with chicken or beef), "Cuisine in Vietnamese families", "Cooking with Chef Didier", "My Vietnamese dishes", and "Fish sauce".
