In her kitchen, Christine Ha possesses a rare ingredient that most professionally-trained chefs never learn to use: the ability to cook by sense. After tragically losing her sight in her twenties, this remarkable home cook, who specializes in the mouthwatering, wildly popular Vietnamese comfort foods of her childhood, as well as beloved American standards that she came to love growing up in Texas, re-learned how to cook. Using her heightened senses, she turns out dishes that are remarkably delicious, accessible, luscious, and crave-worthy.
Millions of viewers tuned in to watch Christine sweep the thrilling MasterChef Season 3 finale, and here they can find more of her deftly crafted recipes. They'll discover food that speaks to the best of both the Vietnamese diaspora and American classics, personable tips on how to re-create delicious professional recipes in a home kitchen, and an inspirational personal narrative bolstered by Ha's background as a gifted writer. Recipes from My Home Kitchen will braid together Christine's story with her food for a result that is one of the most compelling culinary tales of her generation.
It would've been difficult enough for any contestant to win MasterChef Season 3, but to win it with a vision impairment? That's a whole different level (Even for an Asian). While I haven't seen a single page within her book, nor do I have a strong passion for cooking, based on her performance in MasterChef, you should find some delicious recipes and ideas for Asian and American Comfort Food inside this book.
Christine, you're an amazing person.

Tried the recipes
Although the recipes are easy to follow, they are subpar, and nothing special that we have not already seen in several cookbooks. Unfortunately, the recipes I tried were not very tasty, and my family did not enjoy them. I am going to read through the cookbook once more...but it may be given away to someone else. What a shame. I have been looking forward to her cookbook.
