This book is WONDERFUL. I'm a busy mom. The section of 20 minutes really take 20 minutes! The food tastes GREAT. My husband is shocked how many of the recipes we have already tried. We've made nearly 50% of all them now. To boot - the ingredients are genius - you invest really in a select 12-ish ingredients (like spices, oils, etc) and you can make so many dishes from them.

We have cut out eating out by quite a bit, and I have now added several of these books in this series to my wish list based on this experience.

Some cons -
Dishes that use or you personally add veggies to. I find full sodium soy sauce a little salty. So I have on a couple of recipes written right in the book to use low sodium soy sauce instead.

Likewise with oil. The shrimp recipes I cut the oil down, otherwise it's just a tad oily.

Finally - last recommendation - the recipes that have you add the 1/4 tsp or 1/2 tsp of cornstarch - try making the sauce ahead of time. It's a matter of taste - but if you can let it sit 10 minutes - it thickens way more (like Chinese take out) than the 1 minute it calls for while cooking it. I just put it in the fridge until I'm ready. So so good.

I can't wait to make some of these dishes for my mother-in law who really is carb conscience. She wouldn't eat any rice, so I will try to make more sauce and just add more veggies. Yum!

I like to collect cookbooks, and this is the first book I have ever bought that I tried four recipes in a week and loved all of them! The ingredients are common and simple, the instructions precise and easy to follow, and the end result is certainly delicious! Buy this book if you want to cook up some tasty and authentic Asian meals. Enjoy!

Fast and Good -usually the two are mutually exclusive, but not here. I found out about this book at a friend's house. She always cooks amazing meals. She left it out on the counter and I recognized some of her recent dishes. As soon as I got home I ordered this book. I liked it so much I just bought another copy as a gift.

This has been a much-used cookbook in our house. My college-age son complimented so many dishes that I bought one for him too, and he actually uses it. Salt & Pepper shrimp is one of our favorites. The book is divided into 15-minute, 20-minute, and 30-minute dishes, and I find the times to be pretty accurate. I keep all the basic ingredients for sauces and seasonings at home, so I can always throw something delicious together. If you don't have a wok, get one because this will all be even faster and more delicious.

I purchased this book as a gift for my wife. I said I would cook recipes that she chooses. The two recipes I have cooked are fairly easy to make and have been a hit. Depending on your pantry, you may have to buy some Asian style spices and sauces, but after the purchase the same items are used in most recipes in different combinations.

I never miss a chance to pick up one of thee Williams Sonoma books. I love the recipes in these, and this book is no exception. All are relative simple, but give much more that 'quick food' as a result. Some ingredients list are a little longer, but they are worth it for the flavor.

This cookbook make cooking fast and easy. All the recipes take 30 minutes or less start to finish. Living in Japan, this has made shopping and cooking much easier as I can easily find all of the ingredients here. Other Asian cookbooks have specialty ingredients that are hard to find.

This was an Amazon direct purchase and the book arrived with the dustjacket wrinkled and shredded. OK, someone had to have seen that before shipping it. Thank goodness I am a Prime Member and got the problem solved quickly. THe cookbook itself is good. I just get annoyed when there are too many ingredients, but that may be my problem because we are trying to cook Asian Food? Anyway, the cookbook itself is a good buy.
