Favorite Cookbook

My daughter bought this book years ago at Sam's Club. I thought she was spending money necessarily. Then I tried a couple of the recipes and immediately bought one for me and for each of my older children. Every recipe we have tried has been wonderful, and a few are my very favorite dishes to make.

This book is the best!

This book is one of the best cookbooks ever (and I've used a lot of them)! If you weren't raised with Asian food but you want to learn how to cook it, the is the one and only book you need. My friends who are Korean, Chinese, etc., and were brought up eating those foods think this book is great too. I especially like the Thai section.

THE essential Asian Cookbook

Wow. This book covers the basics for all Asian countries from Indonesia to Thailand to Korea to even Indian and Pakistan. I've travelled extensively through Asia and was surprised to find a book that contained so many of my favorite local recipes. There are colorful pictures on every page too which really helps bring the food to life for those who may not be familiar with Asian cooking. The only drawback to this book is that some recipes contain ingredients that can only be found in Asian markets and it doesn't offer an alternative ingredient that could be easier to find.

Very easy to follow

This book has been extremely helpul to me in cooking Indian dishes. The receipes are east to follow and the outcome is amazing. I would highly recommend this for a first time cook.

A beautiful book of excellent recipes from all over Asia

This is a beautiful book both to look at and cook with. It contains recipes from all over Asia, including Laos & Cambodia, India & Pakistan, Korea... A friend from Singapore confirms that the Singaporean recipes are authentic. These are local recipes not Americanised dishes. I've cooked about thirty five of the recipes from the book since it was given me, and all have been good. The Thai and Indian recipes in particular were superb. The book *looks* beautiful, too: wonderful photographs of the dishes (that look like the real thing, not some art director's dream!); lovely illustrations of ingredients. Many explanations of local ingredients (kaffir lime leaves, galangal, Balti paste). All in all, this is a delightful and very reliable cookbook and one I highly recommend.
