Vietnamese-Australian chef and TV host Luke Nguyen's new cookbook, The Food Of Vietnam, is an impressive, thick tome of first-hand tales and history, and of course, beautifully photographed dishes. All your favorite Vietnamese food lies within, plus a few extras you never saw coming (unless of course you're from Vietnam). But you really need to know how to make this dragon fruit shake.

Fruit shakes, or ‘Sinh to’, are outrageously popular in Vietnam. There are dedicated streets just for Sinh to vendors. When in Vietnam, I have a fruit shake every day. Sinh to varieties include jackfruit, avocado, mango, dragon fruit, papaya, strawberry, banana and more. Condensed milk is the key though.
