9780070596368 With over 800 recipes from 16 countries, Charmaine Solomon’s Complete Asian Cookbook is the perfect introduction to the food of Asia. Charmaine Solomon has tried and tested every recipe, insuring that they are simple to prepare and that every ingredient and every preparation step are explained in easy-to-follow terms. This classic cookbook, in print for 25 years, ventures into culinary areas that are often overlooked: the sour-hot dishes of Thailand, the Nonya cooking of Singapore and Malaysia, the soul-warming hotpots of Korea; as well as excitingly different dishes from the largely uncharted lands (in cooking terms) of Burma, Laos, and Cambodia. It includes recipes from Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. "Once in a while, we encounter a food book that has never, to our knowledge, received the fanfare it deserves. I would put in this category a book in my library, The Complete Asian Cookbook by Charmaine Solomon, which I cherish and refer to often because it is so thorough going and authoritative in it subject matter, and the recipes are uncommonly well written and authentic." --Craig Claiborne, New York Times "This marvelous book is a tour de force . . . Authentic recipes, all possible for the Western Kitchen."--Publishers Weekly
