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.

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.

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).

Although not an avid fan, I really enjoy watching these two boys when they are on and have genuinely picked up a few tips from them. I have used a couple of their recipes from watching their shows and looking it up on the Internet. Their stuffed pork fillet being a favourite. We love the taste of Asian cooking having travelled there a few times, and find it hard sometime to copy their results. I liked the look of one of their Asian adventures so decided to buy the book. However, the jury is out on this book at the moment. Have only made one dish I honestly didn't think there was much taste to it. I did however think it had potential to adjust for flavour. We do like very strong flavour foods so perhaps we are just a bit too picky! I have looked through the book and if I'm honest not too sure we would like many of the dishes, but then cook books can be hit and miss some have loads of recipes I would use others like this one not so many. I am finding the recipes always seem to have things that one of us doesn't like or just reading the ingredients think that's not going to be tasty. Although I can generally substitute or jiggle around to suit I don't think I could with some of these recipes. It's not that I can't get the ingredients either, I have access to a lot of continental and Asian supermarkets. If you also take out the fish dishes which we are not so keen on, especially cooking ourselves then the book gets very small! There are a couple more recipes in the starter section I may try. I have also bought their pie book which I haven't used yet as my hubby loves my chicken pie and if I make a pie (as a treat, always watching our weight) end up doing the same one, but I will endeavour to choose one soon and try.Read more ›
