Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Asian grandmothers--whether of Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Vietnamese, or Indian descent--are the keepers of the cultural, and culinary, flame. Their mastery of delicious home-cooked dishes and comfort food makes them the ideal source for this cookbook. Author Pat Tanumihardja has assembled 130 tantalizing dishes from real Chinese fried rice to the classic Filipino Chicken Adobo to the ultimate Japanese comfort dish Oyako donburi. This is hearty food, brightly flavored, equally good to look at and eat. Flavors range from soy and ginger to hot chiles, fragrant curries, and tart vinegars. The author has translated all of the recipes to work in modern home kitchens. Many of them have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations without written recipes, and some appear in tested and written form for the first time. An exhaustive Asian Pantry glossary explains the ingredients, from the many kinds of rice and curries to unfamiliar but flavorful vegetables.

Synopsis:

Grandmothers are the keepers of tradition — especially when it comes to food. Their mastery of delicious and favorite home cooking dishes makes them the ideal source for the most authentic recipes. The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook serves up 100 tantalizing dishes, from real Chinese fried rice to the classic Filipino Chicken Adobo to the ultimate Japanese comfort dish, Oyako donburi. This cookbook celebrates the noodle with inventive preparations, including Stir Fried Glass Noodles, Fat Noodles in Miso Soup, and Sweet and Savory Wide Rice Noodles. This is hearty food, brightly flavored. This isnt restaurant food, although many of these recipes have become restaurant-menu staples; this is home cooking as practiced by grandmothers, moms, and aunts, passed down for generations.
