Winner of the World Gourmand Award for Best Blog Cookbook, Leemei Tan’s debut book offers up vibrant, modern Asian food, with a stunning collection of recipes inspired by China, Thailand, India & Sri Lanka, Vietnam & Cambodia, Japan & Korea, Malaysia & Singapore, the Phillipines, and Indonesia
Asian cooking combines wonderfully pungent, aromatic spices, herbs and flavourings with imaginative methods, a wide array of ingredients and tastes that explode in your mouth. For many people, though, these hugely enjoyable dishes seem too complicated to make at home. Leemei shows that this isn’t the case – and that anyone can master the art of cooking Asian food.
Leemei Tan reveals how truly easy it can be to master the art of cooking Asian food. Discover, for example, how to make perfect sushi, rich, creamy curries, spicy stir-fries, crisp tempura; or learn how to work with noodles, okra, kaffir lime leaves or wasabi. Find out how to create visually stunning dishes and explore the diverse range of tastes, textures and aromas from the different regions of the continent. The chapters cover China, Thailand, India & Sri Lanka, Vietnam & Cambodia, Japan & Korea, Malaysia & Singapore, the Phillipines, and Indonesia. From Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup to Japanese Sake Steamed Salmon; from Thai Papaya Salad to Chinese Prawn & Pork Won Tons; from Korean Seaweed Soup to Indian Saffron Chicken Pilau – here are more than 100 contemporary, imaginative recipes to inspire and delight, whether you have in mind a quick weekday meal or a feast for friends and family.
