Num Pang: The Cookbook (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016)

The complete guide to approachable Cambodian cooking, Num Pang: The Cookbook brings the cult favorite sandwich shop’s signature flavors home. Based around the “holy foursome” of flavors--chili mayo, cucumber slices, pickled carrots, and fresh cilantro leaves— the book provides recipes for all the fan favorites as well as ones for condiments like Pickled Five-Spice Asian Pears, sides like the Sambal Chili–Glazed Chicken Wings, soups and stews like Curried Red Lentil Soup, salads like Green Papaya Salad, and drinks like Cambodian Iced Coffee. With touches of graffiti art inspired by the chain’s signature urban, hip-hop style, Num Pang looks just as bold as the mouthwatering recipes taste.
