A true and lasting taste of the Orient,
This review is from: The Complete Asian Cookbook (Hardcover)
I first purchased this book twenty four years ago and have used it so much that my original volume is on the point of disintegrating. It contains recipes from every Asian nation from the familiar Chinese to the more unusual Vietnamese and Korean. There is a glossary for unusual ingredients and recommendations for the store cupboard. The recipes are clearly explained and easy to follow. There are plenty of colour pictures. I have subsequently bought more country specific cook books with a larger number of dishes in, but I still return to this book time and time again. An excellent first Asian cookbook.
