4.0 out of 5 stars Chinese food at home June 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My family loves Asian food. From buffets to those wonderful hole in the wall places that are only take out, to eating out when we lived in Korea. When Jim and I were first married we were to poor to eat out, so we invested in a Chinese cookbooks, a cleaver, and a wok, and taught ourselves how to make Chinese food. Over the years we've had many Asian cookbooks, and The Chinese & Asian cookbook is a very good addition to your home library.

The first part of the book deals with equipment, ingredients, terms, including how to deal with Rice, mushrooms, rice paper. Read these chapters, especially if unfamiliar with cooking Asian ingredients.

The recipes are divided by region

China and Hong Kong
Malaysia and Singapore
Thailand and Burma
Vietnam and the Phillipines
Japan and Korea

The table of contents is interactive so you can easily access the recipes. However, this does mean you have to look under each heading for say, chicken, but it's laid out well so individual recipes should be fairly easy to locate. The recipes are also listed by English names.

Measurements are giving in metric or American. The ingredients list is well laid out and most ingredients can be found locally in a big supermarket.

The directions are numbered, 1, 2, 3 and so on, very concise and clear. There are no photographs.

There are a lot of common recipes that will be familiar from take out and restaurants, and a lot of fun new recipes to explore.

So grab this book, a wok, a cleaver, and get cooking! Try the bang bang chicken! or mix cultures, have Miso soup from the Japanese section, and Spicy meatballs with chili Sambal from Indonesia:)
