“Complete with at-a-glance cooking charts, key Asian pantry ingredients, all-new preparation techniques, and unique cooking tips, Taste of the East is a must-have addition to your cookbook shelf.”

Chicago Vegan Restaurant Examiner, 8/19/10
“The recipes pop with bright flavors, like their Panang Curry and Tofu Tikka Masala and luscious textures, like the silky Mango Custard Pudding and Coconut Spinach Rice. Not only do the recipes emphasize fresh, healthy preparations, but they are a breeze to put together, most clocking in at thirty minutes or less with prep and cooking time included unless otherwise indicated…This cookbook is for anyone from the novice to the experienced home cook: anyone who loves the bold, satisfying aromas and flavors at the Indian buffet or wonders how much she could improve on the sesame tofu at the local Chinese restaurant should run out and get this gem of a cookbook. I've only had it for a few weeks and it has already found its way into my top ten cookbook rotation. Very impressive!”

Great resource for ideas and combinations from a variety of Southeast Asian sources. A nice addition to a well-rounded cookbook library.
DebbiLA More than 1 year ago
The recipes really can be completed in 30 minutes and there are often delicious variations if you have a little more time. I got this because I loved the first 30 minute vegan book but was worried about repetition. That is not a problem - these recipes are different from the asian ones in the first book and are not just slight variations. The vegan pad thai is the best ever and it is worth the extra few minutes to make the fishless sauce.
