Madhur Jaffrey's Far Eastern Cookery is a celebration of the myriad exotic flavors of the Far East. It is a personal collection of more than 150 of Madhur Jaffrey's favorite dishes from Thailand, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Madhur Jaffrey evokes the atmosphere of each country as she describes her travels from the fruit markets of Bangkok to the seafront of western Sumatra. Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup fragrant with lemongrass and fresh coriander from Thailand; mushroom caps stuffed with a pungent mixture of ginger and ground chicken from a Japanese 'yakitori' bar; tiny Vietnamese spring rolls with mint, crab, and a hint of lime - these are just a few of the unusual and tantalizing recipes that fill these pages. A full-color guide makes the ingredients used in the recipes easily identifiable, and plenty of tips on techniques and equipment are given. Substitutes are listed for hard-to-find ingredients. With its sumptuous, full-color pictures, Madhur Jaffrey's Far Eastern Cookery is a mouth-watering invitation to cook some of the most exciting and unusual dishes in the world.

Although Jaffrey is known for her Indian cookbooks , her recent Madhur Jaffrey's Cookbook: Easy East-West Menus for Family and Friends ( LJ 6/15/89) included dishes from all over the world, and this new work, the companion to an upcoming PBS series, focuses on the cuisines of the Far East, from Japan to Vietnam. She admires these cuisines for their emphasis on the freshest and best ingredients and for their unique combinations of tastes and textures. Her recipes come from restaurant chefs, home cooks, and her own inspiration, and they range from elegant company dishes to the snacks sold by street vendors. Still, good books on Far Eastern cooking abound; buy for demand.
