I am very picky and critical. I have used the "Asia, the Beautiful Cookbook" since it was first published. I find no flaws in this Asian culinary creation text. I find no flaws in any of the "....., the Beautiful Cookbook" series. Worth every cent that I paid for them. (No, I'm not in any way associated with the publishers or Amazon sales departments.)
P.S. Say, how about getting the "Mexico, the Beautiful Cookbook" back into print too!
ASIA-The Beautiful Cookbook starts in Japan and ends in Sri Lanka. The two main countries of focus with the most recipes and pages, would be China and India. This book includes all types of dishes from each country,.. appetizers, soups, salads, desserts and main dishes. The only thing I can think of that would make me like this book more,... a larger section on Korea. ASIA-The Beautiful Cookbook includes recipes from each country and a history about the unique cuisine that represents it. A cultural background surrounding the people and their food is also lightly explored in this book. It's part cookbook, part history text book. I love it.
Each nation has an individual section, starting with a general introduction as to the factors that influence the cuisine of that particular land. Interspersed with the colorful recipes are incredibly luscious landscapes. Many of these photographs are of museum quality.
I have made many dishes from every country and all turned out well. The Indonesian section was a suprise and the Nasy Goren was a hit for a dinner party. The Korean beef, the Thai lime beef, all the Chinese food - everything looked and tasted sumptous.
