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

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.

There's only one word for this book - Amazing (with a capital A). So far, I've tried two recipes from this book (which I'll review below and keep adding to as I make more and more) and they are so full of flavour and bursting with aroma that I've made them over and over again. This book has really converted me to the Hairy Bikers. Its important to know that though not a beginner, I'm not a confident cook and do really require recipes to help me along with my cooking.

I've tweaked the Pad Thai recipe slightly (emphasis on the word slightly) and this is more to do with personal preference. BUT be warned, some of these recipes are costly but to get the maximum flavour, I would suggest buying the authentic ingredients they recommend (for example Thai basil and Thai shallots). Because of this, I don't tend to make them that often and sometimes I refer to The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries book instead for cheaper versions (and not as tasty) of the recipe.

Pad Thai
This is my FAVOURITE! Since making it, I've often gone into a restaurant and found that their Pad Thai is now lacking and have become one of those "I can make this so much better myself" type of people. The recipe is so full of flavour and aroma and so easy to make. I do prefer it a little sweeter than suggested and so I up the tamarind paste to 2tsps and add a small tsp of honey. Again really a personal preference. I cannot praise this recipe enough and can guarantee you that once you make it, Pad Thai will never be the same again for you.

Chicken Shichimi Katsu Curry
Now I'm not a fan of Katsu curry but my husband is and so I made this dish for him. But I am definitely converted. Such a yummy dish though the Japanese 7-spice seasoning was quite difficult to find (I would suggest New Loon Moon in China Town, London).

I received this as a Christmas present this year and have tried a few of the recipes.

I love the hairy bikers as they tend to be a bit more unorthodox when it comes to the way they present their foods and recipes and don't hide behind uniform presenting styles, because of this I was more than happy to try many of the recipes in the book even though many of the ingredients are things I had to buy online, however, once they are purchased they will last for several recipes.

The book is divided into 7 sections which feature recipes from various locale in Asia such as: Hong Kong; South Korea; Tokyo and Kyoto for example. All of the recipes are accompanied by a picture of the finished dish, and step by step instructions are given, followed by some further serving suggestions.

So far, I've tried 3 recipes from this book that stand out. The first was the stir fried tomato and eggs (Granoma Lulu style), which is featured in the Hong Kong section of the book and has a very nice sweet and savoury taste. Quick and simple to make and inspired me to try various versions of it featuring different/additional ingredients.

The second was the Chashu Pork, which is under the Kyoto and Rural Japan section. I used Pork Loin in this recipe as I was unable to get the specified pork belly (Afternoon shopping is a nightmare), and it turned out sublime. We used the leftovers to make the Chashu pork ramen recipe the next day, which was filling and was our third recipe from the book.

If you like to cook Asian style dishes then I'd recommend you check this out, it's easy to understand and well written.
