Wok cooking made easy.
By Digital Artist - January 9, 2011
What a delightful little cook book. It is a convenient size ( 6 x 8 inches,) and spiral bound for easy placement on your kitchen counter. Each recipe is on one page, no flipping, and a well done accompanying photograph of the meal on the opposite side. No long stories, just the facts and nothing but the facts. The recipes are clearly written with step by step instructions and ancillary notes when needed.
The recipes range form simple to fairly complex, and there is ample variety. Every meal I have cooked form this book has been delicious and ready in minutes just as the subtitle states.
Don't be fooled by the words "made easy" into thinking that this book will teach you how to buy and use a wok. The assumption is that you have acquired those skills elsewhere. For me, "made easy" means it is easy to use this book because of the way it is designed, and the way the recipes are presented.
If you enjoy Asian food, and you want to cook it at home, than I... read more
The best cook book I've had recipe after recipe hands down
By Bruce "Bruce" - April 27, 2012
The rest of the reviews and the description of the book tell you how the book is laid out. I'm going to tell you this book is the best cook book I've owned. The recipes are so full of flavor you have to force your self to stop eating them. All the other cook books I have even the ones by chefs leave you to wonder why they wrote them down or they left out the ingredients that really makes it pop. I will buy more books by this author cause he doesn't hid a thing and when you plate it up you'll agree it couldn't get better. Hope this helps you decide. Amazon has the best price I could find on this book too.
Ingredient Lists For the Serious Asian Chef
By Net Admin / Home Chef - April 7, 2012
This is a beautiful little book full of nice color photography. It's spiral bound to open flat and each recipe is on its own page with a photo of the finished dish on the facing page. There are about 65 recipes which come from all over Asia and are written by a number of different chefs. The publisher is based in Singapore which hosts a mix of Asian cultures and the result in this cookbook is specialties from China, India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
There are lots of tasty things to try here, but be prepared. If you want to cook your way through all of the 65 recipes in this book, the mixture of different national cuisines leads to a pretty long and very diverse list of sauces, spices, and fresh herbs in the ingredients. If you are a serious Asian cook you probably already have fish sauce, dark and light soy sauce, chili sauce, Hoisin sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil along with Chinese five spice and Indian garam masala. You may not already have tamarind pulp, lemon... read more
