Overview

Since its release in 1976, Charmaine Solomon's The Complete Asian Cookbook has become one of the most iconic and influential cookbooks in publishing history. It has sold well over a million copies and garnered a dedicated following across the globe. For the first time in its history, The Complete Asian Cookbook has been comprehensively updated and revised, bringing it to a new generation.
With a collection of over 800 authentic recipes from countries across Asia, including India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand, The Complete Asian Cookbook remains the most authoritative resource on Asian cookery available today, and and is now available in this convenient ebook edition.

Charmaine Solomon started her career in food as a journalist and feature writer for an English-language newspaper in Sri Lanka, where she wrote a cookery column dispensing recipes and food ideas with flair. Descended from generations of talented cooks - a legacy passed on to her daughters Deborah and Nina, who closely assisted in this revised edition - Charmaine is recognised as one of the world's most knowledgeable and practical writers on Asian cooking. She has taught Southeast Asian, Chinese and international cooking, and continues to be inspired by the food traditions across Asia.
In putting together The Complete Asian Cookbook, Charmaine travelled widely through many parts of Asia, revisiting familiar places and discovering new ones to ensure that, as always, her recipe development was completely authentic. In recognition of her contribution to food media, Charmaine was made a member of the Order of Australia in 2007.

    Very Authentic!

    When I was in grad school, I was in a dorm with a Sri Lankan guy who cooked the most amazing food. I asked him if he learned to cook from his mother. He answered, 'No.' In response to the puzzled look on my face, he said, 'When I came to the States for school, my mom bought me this cookbook.' So then I asked, are the recipes authentic? Is it as good as your mom used to make? And he answered, 'Better.' I was sold. I went out and bought The Complete Asian Cookbook a.s.a.p., and have never been disappointed. Whether cooking Indian, Thai, Indonesian, Japanese, whatever, every recipe comes out great! And my Indian and Chinese friends? They can't believe I know how to cook 'their food' the right way! (This review refers to the 1992 printing.)

    Beautiful and practical!

    This is a terrific book to look at and cook from. There are beautiful, mouthwatering photos to go with the mostly authentic and always scrumptious recipes. I've cooked mostly from the Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Korean sections but I plan to try recipes from other regions.
