My mother and I both have this book and we have yet to produce a failure when cooking from it's pages. we have both cooked, among others, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian and Chinese dishes without any need for special equipment other than a good wok and with out having to go hunting for any specialist ingredients outside of our local supermarkets save for Chinese barbecued pork (Char sui) which is not a complicated staple to make at home and freeze. There are numerous recipes online as well as in the book.
The actual recipes are very easy to follow and most dishes are accompanied by a picture that accurately represents what the recipe produces and each recipe finishes with the nutritional information such as calories, fat content and cholesterol.
If you want a good one stop book for authentic Asian cooking then this book belongs on your recipe book shelf.
March 2010 - Update. Just returned from Cambodia and was dissapointed to note that not one of the dishes I enjoyed there was recognisably represeted in this book, not even the "National Dish" Amok. Not sure this book is really up to scratch after all.
The recipes are very easy to follow and, unlike some of the reviewers of this book, I found the photographs very true to colour and the ultimate result.
You won't need to buy any other Asian cookbook, if like us, you enjoy cooking, but are certainly not experts in Asian food.
Would reccomend to anyone who enjoys eating genuine asian food, one of the best asian cookery books i've had.

I expected something more 'fresh'. The photos are not appetizing and there is not this something that makes you want to cook what you see.Published on 24 Jan. 2010 by Natalia Nécureuil
