There are a few recipes from Elizabeth Street Cafe that I would love to get my hands on (vermicelli cakes, anyone?), and this fall, I’ll get the chance.

The French-Vietnamese cafe that opened in 2011 has its debut cookbook, “ Elizabeth Street Cafe,” coming out on Oct. 23, and the publisher, Phaidon, recently released the eye-catching cover. You can pre-order the book now, and it costs $39.95.

Food writer Julia Turshen teamed up with chef-owners Tom Moorman and Larry McGuire to write home cook-friendly recipes for 100 dishes from the restaurants, from spicy breakfast fried rice and eggs and green jungle curry noodles to desserts, such as palm sugar ice cream and toasted coconut cream puffs.

For the record, these are the vermicelli cakes and sausage I want to recreate at home.
