Periplus has long produced beautiful cookbooks and its Mini Cookbooks series are a common sight in most bookshops, displayed on a custom carousel. The series is great for cooks looking to add variety to their homemade meals. This particular cookbook is good for homestyle recipes that can quite easily become part of every cook's arsenal. The recipes are mostly no-fuss-no-muss, everyday dishes that one can whip up even after a day at work and there are no scarily complex processes to manage. The Stir-Fried Pork With Ginger And Cabbage and Sliced Beef In Ginger Soy Gravy, for example, are similar to Chinese stir-fry dishes, while more complex dishes such as yakitori need only patience in the preparation process. The Vietnamese Cooking book in the series is also great for expanding your cooking repertoire although the recipes there are great fiddler than the ones in the Japanese cookook. Vietnamese cooking demands a lot of hers, so it is harder to cook these dishes on a daily basis unless your pantry is well sticked with a wide array and you can spare at least an hour prepping all sorts of fragrant unguents.
