Product Description

Synopsis

Indonesia, Malaysia, Singaporea - these names make one yearn for a distant, fascinatingly different culinary world. Without doubt, the Asian cuisine is centred around rice, which in its purity seems almost ascetic. On the other hand, the dishes that are served alongside are characterised by a beguiling variety and are very often artistically refined. Soya and tofu, herbs and spices, fruits, coconut, bean sprouts, manioc, yam, and sweet potato are just some of the ingredients used in Southeast Asian cuisine. However, this volume is more than an impressive collection of recipes. Articles offering background information and food coverage introduce the reader to the history and characteristics of the various ingredients, explaining the most typical kitchen utensils, illustrating the distinctive features of specific regional cuisine, as well as allowing an insight into the respective festivities and the various cultural influences that in the course of the centuries have had an impact on the gastronomic landscape of the Far East. In every aspect, this is a truly inspiring voyage of discovery! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not like the other Culinarias. 8 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this book after having bought and read the Culinaria Italy and Spain books which were excellent. This book i found dissapointed a little. It's still good but felt it could have gone a little more into depth. It's also a smaller book with less pages than the other "classic" culinaria books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a cook book... 14 Dec 2010
By GemmaW
Format:Paperback
Having been to South East Asia I was really keen to buy a recipe book so I could try and create some of the recipes at home. This was definitely a fantastic choice! Not only does the book contain plenty of recipes together with practical tips on how to serve dishes, it also provides a background of the heritage of dishes, festivities celebrated in Sout East Asia and further information on ingredients and cooking techniques. The pictures are very well taken and can quickly transport you back to Asia! I can't wait to try the satay recipe!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired! 9 Dec 2010

Format:Paperback
This was my first read of the 'Culinaria' series and I can't wait to try the next. A really interesting read, and took me back to trips to South East Asia, and the illustrations really brought it all to life. I'm really in to cooking and trying new things, but also found the exotic remedies and medicines fascinating.
