9780070596368: The Complete Asian Cookbook (Books for Pleasure)

Charmaine Solomon's Complete Asian Cookbook is now an amazing twenty-five years old. To celebrate the anniversary of this classic cookery book it has been fully revised and updated, making it just as fresh as when it was first published. This remains the essential authentic Asian cookery book for anyone interested in the culinary delights of Asia. Thirteen chapters present more than 800 recipes from sixteen countries. There are exciting finds for cooks already familiar with Asian food, and simple recipes for exploring it for the first time. Charmain Solomon comes from a family of exceptionally good cooks. She started her career in food as a reporter and feature writer for an English language newspaper in Sri Lnaka (Ceylon), where she ran a cooking column dispensing recipes and food ideas. Surrounded by generations of talented cooks, Charmaine is now recognised as one of the most knowledgeable (and practical) writers on Oriental cooking. She has taught Southeast Asian, Chinese and international cooking, and her books are sold throughout the world. Her continuing interest in Asian cuisine has resulted in the updating of this classic book.

Review:

"I cherish and refer to often because it is so thorough going and authoritative in its subject matter, and the recipes are uncommonly well written and authentic." --"Craig Claiborne, the New York Times"
