As a Vietnamese girl coming of age in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Nguyen is filled with a rapacious hunger for American identity, and in the pre-PC-era Midwest (where the Jennifers and Tiffanys reign supreme), the desire to belong transmutes into a passion for American food. More exotic- seeming than her Buddhist grandmother’s traditional specialties, the campy, preservative-filled “delicacies” of mainstream America capture her imagination.

When it comes to buying ground pepper versus grinding your own, there's no comparison. Use a grinder to grind peppercorns, and see how pepper is really supposed to taste. Not only is the flavor fresh and good, it also gives you a lot of freedom with your pepper: use a coarse grind (big chunks) for bold pepperiness on meat and salad, and a fine one for fish or lighter soups.
