Overview

You’ve got a serious hankerin’ for Kung Pao Chicken, but Wang’s House of Noodles is 35 minutes away, it’s overpriced, and well, it just plain stinks. Come to think of it, you haven’t found great, let alone decent, ethnic take-out for a while. What to do? How about cook it yourself? All you need is to open up The Take-Out Menu Cookbook and step confidently into the kitchen. . . .This first-of-its-kind cookbook features the top 200 take-out and carry-away dishes from the 12 most popular ethnic cuisines: French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern/Moroccan, Indian, Eastern European/Jewish, Greek, and Japanese. Why buy a Chinese cookbook when all you want is authentic-tasting but healthier-than-take-out Kung Pao Shrimp, Spicy Potstickers, and Mu Shu Pork? By focusing on the most popular dishes from each cuisine, Meredith Deeds and Carla Snyder provide starving chefs with the tools at their disposal to create authentic, healthy, and delicious meals that will make staying home worthwhile! Even highly experienced cooks can be rattled by sushi or derailed by dim sum. But with the help of the authors, who have more than 20 years of experience as cooking instructors between them, there’s no need to worry! With their guidance, the unfamiliar territory of ethnic cuisine is easily maneuvered.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Inspired by cravings for ethnic foods-and frustration with being unable to find decent versions (or any version at all) in nonurban parts of the country-Deeds and Snyder (The Big Book of Appetizers) deliver 200 recipes for popular take-out dishes, from Mu Shu Pork to Chicken Tikka Masala and Fish Tacos. They organize the recipes by cuisine: Chinese, Eastern European, Greek, Middle Eastern, Thai and so on. And they cover the dishes most often ordered, such as Vegetable Biryani, Pizza Margherita, Spicy Tuna Rolls, Paella and Pad Thai. Fun head notes often describe the derivation of dishes-General Tso's Chicken, for example, "was born back in the seventies in a Chinese restaurant in New York" and named after "a successful Chinese statesman back in the mid-1800s." Recipes are approachable, if not strictly authentic, and include indications of total time and hands-on time, which is generally less than an hour. Home cooks without viable take-out options now have a reasonable alternative-though city-dwellers probably won't be getting rid of their take-out menus anytime soon. (Nov.)

    the title doesn't lie

    I am always looking for cookbooks that can help me recreate dishes I have had in restaurants. This book delivers. I had to give it 4 stars because the book needed better editing. Still a good choice if you are looking to mix it up in the kitchen.
