I bought this on a whim. I feel bad when I only order one book, but I had trouble thinking of another book to buy. A quick search through my recommendations turned this up and I don't regret it.

Much of the photography is nothing less than stunning. I normally count photography as a mark against a cookbook (too many use it to cover up bad recipes and a lack of content), but not here. It would take a lot of very flowery words to describe how beautiful the green stir-fry could be, but the picture sums it up into a single page of greenness.

I'm pleased that there are some meat dishes in here and that it isn't all vegetarian. I'm not normally a seafood fan, but the simplicity of flavors and (again) the beautiful photography make these things look good.

When I saw the egg-roll recipe I was especially impressed. It detailed how to efficiently lay out a series of wrappers and how to work with them to roll a large number of egg rolls in a single sitting.

Many of the ingredient are hard to come by for me, but I live in a rather rural area without access to things that most people take for granted. But, for the most part, nothing I saw struck me as unusual. If you live in any kind of populated area then you should have no trouble shopping for the things you will need to cook.

Format: Hardcover
Honga's Lotus Petal has been a Telluride favored establishment notable to both locals and skiers for its eclectic Asian-influenced cuisine, and here a varied set of innovations offers up recipes for soups, salads, main dishes, and even sushi and drinks. Fine color photos and easy step-by-step instructions accompany a guide that reflects the cook author's visits to chefs across Asia and even into Hawaii. The resulting dishes are mouth-watering, outstanding creations holding many unique twists and turns to attract cooks and libraries - even those who already have extensive Asian cookbooks.
