Whether they're served cold, pan-fried until crunchy, or simmered in soup, noodles are a major part of Asia's cuisine. Each country has its own signature dish, from China's Pork Lo Mein to Thailand's Pad Thai to Japan's Yaki-Soba, and the noodles themselves might be made from wheat, rice, or even mung beans. All these dishes have one thing in common, though: They're uniformly delicious. And now, thanks to noted Asian cooking expert Helen Chen, they're a snap to prepare at home.

Easy Asian Noodles includes more than 60 recipes for noodle dishes, all of which are simple enough for even a fledgling Asian cook. If you can make spaghetti, you can make these recipes. Many of them take less than half an hour from pan to plate—it's the perfect way to add variety to hurried weeknight dinners. And the majority use ingredients you'll find in any supermarket—the most exotic ingredient in Chen's Yaki-Soba is Worcestershire sauce!

Chen takes recipes from every corner of the continent and makes them accessible to Western home cooks. After a thorough discussion of Asian noodles in general—glossaries of noodles and other Asian ingredients, the best ways to cook and serve noodles, and the right equipment for the job (most of which you probably already own)—Chen moves on to the recipes, an irresistible selection of simple, foolproof dishes organized into three categories:

Stir-Fried, Pan-Fried, and Sauced Noodles: From China there's Crispy Noodle Cake with Shredded Chicken and Vegetables, Scallion and Ginger Soft Noodles, or Wide Rice Noodles with Beef in Black Bean Sauce; Singapore offers curry-infused Rice Sticks; Thailand brings Pad Thai, of course, but also Crazy Noodles, My Drunken Noodles, and Spicy Basil Beef Noodles.

Soup Noodles: Take comfort in a steaming bowl of Cantonese Roast Duck Soup Noodles or Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup. Learn the simplest possible method to make your own wontons—pork, turkey, or shrimp. Or for a spicy treat, try Peking Hot-and-Sour Noodle Soup, Japanese Curry Udon, or Vietnamese Quick Chicken Ph?.

Cold Noodles and Noodle Salads: Refreshing on a hot day or when you just don't feel like heating up the kitchen—choices include Spicy Peanut Sesame Noodles, Dan Dan Noodles, Japanese Summer Noodle Salad, Iced Somen Noodles, Thai Beef Salad with Deep-Fried Rice Sticks, Vietnamese Poached Shrimp in Herbed Rice Noodle Salad, and ten more.

Filled with straightforward recipes, gorgeous photographs, and expert advice, this is the perfect cookbook for anyone who loves noodles.

"I've always joked with my Italian-American sister-in-law, Barbara, that pasta originally came from China to Italy via Marco Polo.

For most Asians, noodles conjure up thoughts of home, comfort, and good food."—Helen Chen

Denise Morland, July 1, 2010 (view all comments by Denise Morland)
Easy Asian Noodles is a handy, little hardcover cookbook that lives up to its name. The recipes typically have 10 ingredients or few and take 30 minutes or so to make. Most the ingredients are easy to find in the asian section of your local supermarket. Its an attractive book with full page, color photos of all most all the recipes.

The recipes themselves are a little hit or miss. The first one I made, Chicken Coconut Noodle Soup, was amazing. It was very flavorful and full of good veggies. The Chinese Chicken Salad with Chow Mein Noodles was good, though I didn't really care for the chow mein noodles. Still the chicken was tasty and the almonds added a nice crunch. The Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup was downright bland and tasteless. Maybe using a better chicken broth in the recipe would have improved its flavor. So, you can see I had a wide range of experiences with these recipes! Still, the recipes are easy and fast, generally pretty healthy, and ingredients are readily available. This is a book I will cook from more. If you like asian noodles or are looking for an easy introduction to asian cooking, then Easy Asian Noodles is a good choice.
