Praise For…

“Instead of relying on cup ramen to survive, take my hand,” writes 25 year-old TikTok phenom Newt Nguyen. Paging through, you get the sense that Nguyen believes in you—and believes it’ll absolutely be worth it to make any of his six fried chicken recipes. Alongside tacos, salmon crispy rice, and a Chicken Parm engineered for maximum cheesepull, Nguyen shares recipes for the Vietnamese food that soothes his homesickness, and a collection of quick noodle and stir-fry dishes that really won’t take much more time on a weeknight than that instant ramen would. — Epicurious
