The Complete ASIAN COOKBOOK By Charmaine Solomon
Thirteen chapters present more than 800 recipes from sixteen asian countries. There are exciting finds for cooks already familiar with Asian food, and simple (but nonetheless authentic) recipes for those exploring it for the first time.
Even a glimpse at these pages shows that there’s much more to Japanese food than sukiyaki and raw fish; to Chinese food than ‘chop suey’ and fried rice; to Indian food than scorching curries; to Indonesian food than satays and peanut sauce. And while Ms Solomon in her inimitable way, covers some familiar territory, she ventures into culinary areas that ought to be better known: the sour-hot dishes of Thailand, the Nonya cooking of Singapore and Malaysia, the Arabian Nights flavours of Indian sweetmeats, the soul-warming hot-pots of Korea; and she brings back excitingly different dishes from the largely uncharted (in cooking terms) lands of Burma, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
The introduction to each chapter gives valuable information about how local dishes are prepared and served. There is a special section in ‘equivalents and substitutes’. The comprehensive glossary explains unfamiliar ingredients, and the detailed index lists local and Western names for every dish. And you can almost taste the superb photographs that illustrate every chapter.
