Things I can't Live Without: Green Valley Organics Kefir Recipe
This is the start of many more videos revealing the things I can't live without. I'm going to be sharing more products that are a must in my refrigerator, my everyday ingredient items and I'll also name the "secret weapons" that I simply can't work without in my cooking. Green Valley Organics kefir is one of the small pleasures I enjoy. Last weekend, I combined it with hazelnuts for their essential fatty acids, a few baby kale leaves and frozen berries for a wonderful, healthy smoothie.

Master the Art of Banh Mi Sandwich Making (Video) Recipe
After releasing my second best-selling cookbook, "Banh Mi", it seemed pretty obvious to make a tutorial about mastering the art of Vietnamese sandwich making. Making a bánh mì sandwich is really about using a bread roll (preferably a baguette), adding the filling of your choice, Vietnamese-style pickles, lime mayonnaise and quality butter. That's pretty much it. If you want the recipe for each of the elements of a bánh mì, check out my cookbook! There isn't such a thing about a bánh mì not being authentic in my opinion since it's a fusion cuisine adaptation of the traditional jambon-beurre (French ham and butter baguette sandwich). After the colonial period, only wealthy people could afford imported French goods. The organic response was to replicate the French dishes as closely as possible. The Vietnamese sought out and replaced the costly French ingredients they adored with local products. For example pickled carrots and daikon are a substitute for cornichons (the small pickles in the French sandwich). I hope you like my new cooking channel on YouTube.

How to Make French Madeleine Cookies (Video) Recipe

 I love madeleine cookies. I love them so much, I probably make them at least once a month. They're a great snack and I always have someone in our home to enjoy, especially for guests that stop by for tea time. Believe me, ours never go to waste. 


My friend Zareen recently opened her new restaurant, aptly named Zareen's, on 1477 Plymouth in Mountain View. She serves delicious Pakistani/Indian kebabs and various scrumptious goods. She asked me if I'd be interested to make desserts. I rolled up my sleeves and jumped into her kitchen. I wanted to impart an oriental flair to the sweets so I prepared masala chai madeleine cupcakes. If you live in the area, stop in and try Zareen's delicous menu and my sweets! And if you don't live near by, you can always try and replicate them by watching my new madeleine cooking tuorial! Please check out and subscribe to my YouTube channel (PhamFataleDotCom) and bon appétit!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi Recipe with Cooking Video Recipe

I made sweet potato gnocchi this weekend. But instead of making regular potato gnocchi with eggs as a binder, I used chana dal paste and a little tahini. The dough comes out a little sticky compared to using eggs, but the texture turns out the same. I paired the gnocchi with Asian ingredients for the sauce and bok choy.

I haven't posted anything over the weekend because I spent the last few days filming my very first cooking video! I had no clue how long it would take to film and edit the takes, and I have to admit, it was quite a lot of work. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think and check out the blooper reel below for a few laughs.
