Publisher Comments:

With over 800 recipes from 16 countries, Charmaine Solomon's The Complete Asian Cookbook is the perfect introduction to the food of Asia. Charmaine Solomon has tried and tested every recipe, ensuring 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 30 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 lands of Burma, Laos and Cambodia.


A food bible in the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything

This is the best Asian Cook book I have ever used..I am on my second copy and have many favorite sure hits from this book. I lived in Hong Kong and Singapore as a child and these recipes are authentic and accessible. From Borneo to Japan and beyond, recipes and food culture are offered. Add this book to your collection, you will be glad you did!

A wonderfully comprehensive guide to the food and cooking methods of many Asian countries. The recipes are authentic and substitutions are provided when applicable. I've had mine for 15 years and due to its extensive use, it is in rather poor condition. It is the first book I'll need to replace for this reason.
