Love Asian food, but too intimidated to make it at home? Find yourself flipping through an Asian cookbook, then going out for Thai noodles or Korean barbecue rather than going into your kitchen?
When Marnie Henricksson gave up her noodle shop in Greenwich Village and settled down to raise her kids in the ‘burbs, she had difficulty finding her favorite Asian ingredients at the local supermarket. So she tweaked her recipes to work with readily available ingredients, allowing her and her family to enjoy Asian food every day.
In Everyday Asian, Henricksson shares 75 of her favorite dishes from the traditional cuisines of Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, and India. She begins the book with a chapter detailing how to find, make, and store necessary ingredients, as well as giving advice on invaluable kitchen equipment for Asian cooking.
Here’s your opportunity to master classic dishes such as Pad Thai, Chinese Pork Roasts, Spring Rolls, and Vietnamese Pho, and expand your imagination with Henricksson’s innovative recipes for Asian Pesto (replace pine nuts with peanuts and Italian basil with Thai basil, cilantro, and mint) and Spicy Chicken Wings (an American classic with a good dose of Asian spices).
With Everyday Asian, enjoying Asian food as often as you like is just a supermarket aisle away.
Most of the time with cooking and eating, the rules are clear.
