Product Description

Review

Food heroes Si King and Davey Myers have travelled to Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand and Korea, sampling every kind of food they could get their hands on. In this fab new book, they bring home the best recipes for us to try. They're speedy to make, packed with flavour and healthy too, so the diet doesn't have to go out of the window! (CLOSER)

For their latest book, Si King and Dave Myers travelled to Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand and Korea. The result is a beautiful collection of fresh, healthy and enticingly authentic recipes with everything from miso baked black cod to pad thai, and clay pot duck with ginger. There's also a useful A-Z of ingredients and a nationwide list of suppliers (WAITROSE KITCHEN 'Book of the Month')

This collection, accompanying the new BBC TV series, includes recipes from Thailand, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong. Spicy, fresh and simple to cook, there are lots of street food snacks and satisfying main course dishes to inspire and the boys use ingredients widely available in the UK. (BBC GOOD FOOD MAGAZINE)

The thing I like most about Mr Myers and Mr King is the passion with which they enjoy what they cook... another absolute triumph in a long line of successful cookery books. Worth owning for the Panang Beef Curry recipe on Pae 108 which I now crave more than anything else I've cooked in ages! (Ben Keenan, Waterstones, Butter Market, Bury St Edmonds BURY FREE PRESS)

Full of tempting recipes from dim sum to Japanese pizza, chow mein to penang beef curry. If you've not dabbled in Asian cooking before, this book will most certainly convert you. Si and Dave have put their own twist on well-known recipes as well as introducing some more unUsual ones. Recipes are easy to follow and the photography makes the book (CHOICE)

Book Description

In this BBC TV tie-in book, bestselling, big-hearted and down-to-earth chefs, The Hairy Bikers, tour Asia to find the best authentic recipes.

We pre ordered this book as my wife is a big fan of the Hairy Bikers and we already own two of their other books (from the Hairy Dieters series).

We are keen cooks and like to cook a lot of meals from scratch but it has to be said that when it comes to Asian food, our knowledge and experience is lacking, despite loving this type of cuisine, with only a couple of recipes that we tend to do frequently at home.

I have posted a more in-depth review for those that are interested after this initial summary, as well as a full recipe list at the end, but to try and briefly summarise the main things I like about the book:

- Every single recipe has an image; the majority have a large colour image or multiple images, and a few will have the image on the page before or after that recipe.

- As with their other books we own, the Hairy Bikers’ methods are in-depth and really explain the recipe well, leaving you in no doubt as to what to do, and which ingredients you can or can’t substitute (I have uploaded a couple of images on this page to help try and show what a typical recipe page looks like).

- My wife loves the fact Si and Dave have made an effort to keep the recipes healthy even though this isn’t formally a part of their dieting series (note no calorie info though)

- The recipes, as with many books, seem to vary in their apparent difficulty. As we are relatively new to cooking Asian cuisine there are some recipes we can’t wait to try, and others that look a little complicated for now or require ingredients we don’t think we’ll be able to get in our local supermarket, and may be more something to try and a weekend when we have the time (the time for things to potentially go wrong!).

Looking for criticisms… I sincerely have none.

I received the book about a month ago. I have tried three recipes so far: the ‘hot and spicy squid salad’, ‘Thai massaman chicken curry’ where I replaced the chicken breast by chicken thighs (more juicy) and the ‘Thai fish ball noddle soup’. I am extremely happy with the resulting dishes!!! The flavours and the textures are wonderful. Having the guidance of these recipes has opened new doors for me, using ingredients I wasn’t used too. Many of the recipes require a few ingredients we might not have commonly in our cupboards, but nonetheless, these are very easy to get in Chinese supermarkets.
The ‘Asian Adventure’ of the `Hairy Bikers’ is an excellent overview of the food traditions of the Far East. A very big thank you to Si, Dave and all the team behind this project, for given us a very good insight into the Far East cuisine, and as part of this, this book that gives easy access to achieving those wonderful dishes.

I got this book around 2 weeks ago having been following the serie on TV. I do love the Hairy Bikers and there approach to cooking. As with the other books they have done the recepies are really easy to follow.

Before each of the recepies there is a small description/story/explanation to the dish or how you could do things different or why it is eaten or how in the country of origin, I like this as I get a bit of an idea of the country. The book also got beautifull pictures which help you to get an idea of the food you are cooking and how it should look when finished.

Two of the dishes I have made with great sucess is the Kimchi Stew and Kimchi Pancakes. They were delecious and the taste was quite close to the original dishes I tasted at my Korean friends house, a bit simpler in taste but not far off. Also I cooked some of the Japanese recepies and they were really nice as well.

With the ingredients I find that most can be found in the bigger super markets if not the book got a wonderfull list in the back showing where the ingredients can be bought online. If living near to London most of the ingredients can be found in and around the Asian super markets in ChinaTown (I was lucky enough to be able to shop there the other day), however, for the people who don't live near London or don’t have big supermarkets try to buy it online instead.

Most of the recepies does not require all kind of fancy equipment, however, a pestle and Motar seems to be essential.

I would recommend this book to anybody who is interested in Asian Flavours but would like to make nice and easy uncomplicated food. If you are a very experienced Asian Cook you may find that a lot of the recepies are not super unique and similar recepies occure in other cookbooks.

Fantastic, but prepare to spend a lot on ingredients, also need a Chinese supermarket or shop online, but we'll worth it

A wonderful book with great photos, and wonderful mix of recipes that are easy to follow. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there is no index of recipes in the kindle edition so to find recipes you have to go thought the whole book.

Five stars because I can't give it ten! Yet another great book from another great TV series; the Sumo wrestling had me in stitches. Like Great Curries the book is well illustrated throughout, the recipes are easy to follow and fairly quick to prepare. Anyone who says they can't get the ingredients probably thinks the internet is something on a West London tennis court.

Again, as with Curries the section describing the ingredients is excellent and likewise the list of suppliers. One (minor) gripe; they failed to mention the fabulous Asian Cookshop, check out that web site, where you can not only get the exotic ingredients (great Bombay Ducks), but also the exotic cooking equipment (even Rick Stein now has a proper cast iron wok), even a home-sized Tandoori oven. I just hope they follow it up with a UK cooking demonstration tour as they did with Great Curries.

If you are new to Asian cuisine but Dude and Kingy have whetted your appetite, check out Charmane Solomon's The Complete Asian Cookbook. Easy to follow recipes including from Asian countries that the lads didn't visit, presumably because of BBC budgets.

PS

Dave Myers isn't a Brummie, dude, he's from Barrow-in-Furness.
