HCM CITY (VNS) — Linh Trang, author of the best-selling cookbook Nhat ky hoc lam banh (Diary of Learning to Make Cakes) will have a session to introduce and sign the second volume of her book on Sunday (March 15) at Nha Nam Bookshop in HCM City.
Born in 1985 in Ha Noi, Linh Trang is currently a research student at Antwerp University in the Kingdom of Belgium.
She is the owner of the virtual kitchen Savoury Days (www.savourydays.com) which has attracted nearly 30 million views in three years.
"Savoury Days has become the general kitchen of people who have love of cooking as well as a craving to make delicious dishes and beautiful cakes for their lovers," says a release from Nha Nam.
Linh's Nhat ky hoc lam banh became a phenomenon in the cookbook sector last year as 2,000 copies were registered a few hours after being launched last March. All of its 20,000 copies eventually sold out.
The book includes seven chapters with 40 recipes of cakes with illustrated photos. Each chapter starts with the author's dairy of her progress in learning to make the cakes herself.
The second volume, Nhat ky hoc lam banh 2, was published by Hong Duc Publishing House and Nha Nam Culture and Media Company on International Women's Day.
"The book is a world of bread, pastry, cookies and artwork-like entremets," says the release.
Besides the meticulous instruction and basic knowledge of Savoury Days and Nhat ky hoc lam banh, the second book features cakes that are more difficult to make, but more attractive and practical.
"If I have a dull day and everything seems to be utterly unsuccessful, I know there is still one thing that I can do well. That is a batch of soft and crispy cookies which leaves a sweet-scented kitchen," Linh says.
Nha Nam Bookshop is located at 43 Ho Van Hue Street, Phu Nhuan District. The session will start at 9:30am. — VNS
