Chi­na­town Kitchen: Deli­cious Dish­es from South­east Asian Ingredients

by Lizzie Mabbott

Product Description


South­east Asian food is more pop­u­lar than ever before, but what ARE all those mys­te­ri­ous ingre­di­ents in the south­east­ern sec­tion of the super­mar­ket — or, even more so, in your near­est South­east Asian mar­ket? Lizzie Mab­bott iden­ti­fies key ingre­di­ents, explains the dif­fer­ences between the 77 types of noo­dles (not count­ing Pot”) and tells you how to use them. AND she pro­vides all the recipes you’ll need to cook your own deli­cious meals at home using the tasti­est ingre­di­ents from Chi­na, Malaysia, Viet­nam, Thai­land, Korea, Japan and all across the region. So tuck in to the authen­tic (from Grilled Aubergines with Nuoc Cham to Chi­nese Chive Breads and Kore­an Sum­mer­time Noo­dles) or the inven­tive and absolute­ly deli­cious (Kim­chi Toast­ed Cheese Sand­wich, Tem­pu­ra Soft-Shell Crab Burg­ers and Chi­nese Spag Bol), and cook your way around the Asian supermarket.
