Library Journal
Hair (www.SteamyKitchen.com) is a home cook-turned-food blogger-turned-cookbook author. She shares recipes drawn from her mother's kitchen, other food bloggers, and her own delightful archives. Her focus is mostly simple Asian dishes (from China, Vietnam, Japan, and Thailand), with several more complicated ones thrown into the mix. She veers from the current trend of Asian fusion cuisine by trying to uphold the integrity of each country's unique flavors and ingredients. This focus is what makes her book distinctive. Hair also provides great kid-friendly dishes like eggrolls, Chinese broccoli and beef, and crispy chicken with citrus teriyaki sauce. Desserts are appealing and include the much loved bubble tea and an innovative grilled banana-and-chocolate treat. VERDICT For home cooks of all levels of experience seeking to expand their repertoire of Asian recipes, Hair has written an extremely accessible cookbook that blends great recipes with mouthwatering photographs she took. Highly recommended. [See Publishers Weekly's online profile "The Cooking Star You Haven't Heard of Yet: Jaden Hair" at http://bit.ly/6jsBA.—Ed.]—Claire Moitra, Providence, RI

I bought this book yesterday and love it.  The recipes are healthy asian and are easy to make.  It is beautifully written and the photographs are great.  The story telling along the way is entertaining.  This is a great book for making easy, healthy asian food at home that is much much better than take out any day.  This will become a book that I use weekly. .

It's refreshing to read how Jaden's family was and still is influential in her cooking. It makes this more than 'just' a cookbook. The writing is wonderful, the pictures are great. Good job with the camera girl! Best of all, the food recipes are easy to understand. It makes trying some new things not so hard. Great job Jaden. doug johnson

I've now made three recipes from this cookbook, I've enjoyed all of them immensely, and I have more flagged to try. The Chinese Beef Broccoli and the Korean BBQ-Style Burgers in particular were very flavorful, and like so many other recipes in the book were made to seem easy without either oversimplifying or losing authentic flavors. Or maybe the word I want isn't so much "easy" as "logical." Every recipe makes sense; it flows naturally and seems effortlessly repeatable as well as a basis for variations on the theme. In addition, the photography throughout the book is gorgeous, and the writing is delightful to read. I can hardly wait to make some of the other recipes I've flagged. I can tell that this cookbook is going to be one of my kitchen standards -- and I have over 300 cookbooks.
