Vietnamese Fisherman's Stew

May 20, 2011

In the video above, Amanda gets down and dirt cheap with BigGirlPhoebz and SmallKitchCara as they cook up a comforting Vietnamese Fisherman's Stew (which appears in the -- surprise, surprise -- "Dirt Cheap" section of their new book, In the Small Kitchen, due out next Tuesday, May 24th!).

These young and smiley food52ers let us in on tips and tricks for a younger set, from sharing a kitchen to stretching a stew (serve over rice!).

This week's videos were once again shot and edited our videographer Elena Parker (who now produces our bi-weekly Dinner & a Movie column as well!).

Hi Ladies, great video - I am looking forward to making this Vietnamese Fisherman's that it is a presentable, flavorable and healthy (and cheap!!!) meal. Your new cookbook is on my shopping list! Thanks for sharing! Cheers...:o)

Nice video. I like seeing three smiling women cooking away, enjoying each other's company and a mean fish stew.

What a thrill to see two of my very favorite food52 cooks, "live"! And how exciting, that your book is about to be released. Congratulations! I shall be so pleased to order one for each of my sons, and for me! Love the stew recipe, too. It's on my "must try" list. ;o)
