I bought this book and have made several chicken and rice recipes from it. A lot of them are great recipes that I've made more than once and my favorite is her sticky Asian rice. A few of the recipes were not very exciting taste wise but the recipe itself and instructions all worked. I think her second book will "bring it" it a bit more!

Outstanding Cookbook for Pros and the Kitchen Challenged! 20 Dec. 2010
By G. Z. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my first review even after years and thousands of dollars in purchases on Amazon. I felt I owed it to the author after finally feeling thrilled with a cookbook purchase.

As an aspiring "home chef" without talent or experience, I've bought dozens of cookbooks hoping to find one that would enable me to create cuisine, not just mundane meals. Sadly, I have been let down countless times. Sure, my lack of cooking skills puts me at a huge disadvantage, but I'm not buying complex books. I tried to stick with cookbooks that focused on the novice. In the end, my dishes looked nothing like the photos, tasted nothing like the description, and left me with little more than dirty dishes and buyer's remorse.

The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook changed that for me. I've now cooked six meals from within these pages and every single one of them left me literally smiling at first bite. Just like one of those corny food commercials. :) Here's why:

1. The ingredients were all found at my local supermarket...unlike books that sent me to far away places in search of obscure spices that I'd never use again.

2. The book was fun to read, kept my attention, and gave me insight like no other cookbook had given me in the past. Most just started right in with the recipes, leaving me with more questions than answers. Unlike the Steamy Kitchen, they focused on the "how" without ever addressing the "why".

3. The steps were easy to follow, the dishes easy to prepare, and the end result actually matched the photos. The other cookbooks I bought should have come with a sous chef because I was way out of my element. I never realized how inadequate they were until I read and followed this book.

4. The flavors were solid, delicious, and spot-on. I couldn't believe I made these meals. They seemed complex to the taste but they were actually quite easy to make. I wasn't the only one in our family raving about the food I cooked. If you knew me, you'd know how incredible that is.

The Scallops & Fruit Salsa...amazing. The Salmon with Cucumber Relish...amazing (I used her 250-degree slow-cook method instead of steaming). The Crab I have EVER tasted. I could go on and on. And I will, in my kitchen, until I've cooked every meal in the book.

If you are hesitant to purchase this book...don't be. Even if you actually ARE a chef, unlike me, you'll find the dishes and flavors to be divine. But if you're a hazard waiting to happen in the kitchen, like me, this book will literally motivate you to keep trying.'s that good.

best cookbook i own 9 Feb. 2010
By sugarbump - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love buying cookbooks. I love the pictures, the recipes, and trying new things. However, not many cookbooks have appealed to me because of their long, complicated recipes, so most of the time, these lovely cookbooks end up sitting on my shelf collecting dust.

A good friend of mine got me this for Christmas, and I literally jumped for joy when I opened the package. Jaden is one of my favorite food bloggers, and I couldn't wait to try out her new recipes.

I feel like she gets it-- who wants to spend 8 hours at work, only to come home and spend another 3 hours on dinner after stopping by the grocery to buy 50 things you didn't have and are only going to use once? She gets that I need dinner now, I want it good, and I want it to only LOOK like I spent a lot of time on it. This book is perfect. Her recipes are fresh, fun, and very simple. I've made some good stuff in a dinky studio kitchen (with no oven), and my husband is happy after a long day at pharmacy school. I HIGHLY recommend it, even for your kitchen-fearing friends!

I also bought this book for a friend of mine who lives in Florida. I told her no excuses about not being to cook Asian food; if Jaden can do it, she can!

If you like the blog, you will like the book 28 May 2012
By Samuel Dram - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you've ever read the "steamy kitchen" blog then you already know whether you want this book or not. If you like the style of that blog, then you will love this book.

If you've never read it, the gist of it is that she rewrites of a whole bunch of recipes from different Asian countries, reconstitutes and presents them in a way that makes Asian food accessible to middle America.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you are looking for authentic recipes, this is not the book for you. If you are looking to make your meals more "Asian" but don't have a lot of experience with Asian food, and you enjoy the bloggy tone of the "steamy kitchen" site, then you will like this book.

A-MAZING. The Perfect book for easy pan-asian for people like me with no close restaurants 9 Mar. 2010
By Jennifer L. Menke - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this cookbook. But not only that, I cook from this cookbook. And so far, every dish I've made (about 10 so far) has been a success. No flops. I can't say that about many of my other cookbooks. I worried that the cookbook would be a duplication of her blog, but it isn't. These are really good, authentic tasting recipes that make sense. They use shortcuts where shortcuts make sense (like using curry paste instead of hammering out your own). It has tips I have never seen anywhere else (like folding rice paper wrappers in half before rolling to make summer rolls easier to make). I just can't say enough about it. I highly recommend it.

A real cookbook for home cooks 15 Oct. 2009
By Kien Goh - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this highly-anticipated cookbook yesterday afternoon and was very happy to find out that it exceeds all my expectations. This cookbook is real. It's not perfect but it is friendly and accessible. Reading through the headnote of the recipes, I feel like a dear friend is teaching me how to cook and how to eat better. There is nothing pretentious about it, and that alone makes this cookbook unique and appealing.

Most of the cookbooks out in the market are glorified by food stylists and food photographers--this is not a bad thing because cookbooks are meant to appeal to the potential readers at first sight, but they tend to be too perfect and "cold." The recipes are almost too pretty for everyday cooking. The author of this book learned how to take food photography herself and all the photos in the cookbook was done by her. As a result, it really makes me want to rush to the kitchen and start cooking.

All in all though, I think this is a great cookbook done in a very casual "conversational" style with real-life food photography and everyday Asian recipes.
