This review is from: Indochine (Hardcover)
This book is beautifully presented, as is the norm for most cook books these days and includes stories about Luke's travels and his inspiration for this book.
Don't let the slightly obscure ingredients put you off, I found most of them online very easily (and cheaply) and in supermarkets (one ingredient I thought was obscure, I found two days later in a store!).
If you want good, tasty Asian food which is the opposite of your run of the mill Chinese takeaway, books like this are the way to go- you have to be prepared to prepare in advance buying ingredients and also to prep the meal, but then you would need to do this with Gordon Ramsey or Heston! Most of the ingredients can be kept so you can cook the same meals at a fraction of the cost of a takeaway.
