Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Thoroughly and expertly presents the entire spectrum of the Asian culinary landscape, from Burma to Vietnam." —Ming Tsai, award-winning author and host of Simply Ming

"This is a great introduction to Asian cuisine! It begins with The Flavors of Asia, Ingredients and The Asian Kitchen before moving into the recipes. Each section covers an Asian country starting with Suggested Menus and then is broken down into sections such as (but not limited to) Appetizers, Soups and Desserts. Some countries have more sections than others, but all is nicely organized and there are gorgeous color photos scattered throughout." —Sandra's Kitchen Nook blog

"One thing that sets this book apart from many recipe books is that it's also part travel and cultural guide. [...] each chapter begins with an introduction to the featured country's culture, people and culinary traditions. In this way, The Asian Kitchen welcomes you into each of those different Asian kitchens, traces their origins, and then tells you how to prepare simple Asian recipes in your own kitchen." —Fuori Borgo blog

"All the recipes I have tried so far have been spot-on, well written, and to the point. Nearly every page was bookmarked for recipes I want to try in the future." —Tara's Multicultural Table blog

"[...] I had settled into my comfy chair with the cookbook I found myself quickly lost in the delights of the specialities of each cuisine. [...] I have traveled here and there in Asia and we have delighted in good food wherever we found it. Fond memories of yummilicious foods that we had eaten in distant lands danced through my mind as I turned the pages." —The Hong Kong Cookery blog

"[...] this book is a nice compilation of Asian recipes, quite a lot of recipes compared to the pages in the book, not less than a whopping 300 recipes! If you love to read up on cuisine of other countries but won't want to own too many cookbooks, this book will be good. Imagine having a book each from all the countries." —Table for 2 or More... blog
