Description: Once you've tasted it, it's hard to forget the luscious tang of Chinese Lemon Chicken Medallions. The subtle elegance of Vietnamese Five-Spice Grilled Quail. The chile punch of Thai Meatballs in Spicy Peanut Sauce. You want to experience them again and again. But for most busy home cooks, the thought of cooking a complete Asian meal is daunting.
Now Joyce Jue, one of America's leading authorities on Asian cooking, makes it easy to enjoy many of Asia's most delectable dishes at home. Asian appetizers, small dishes that carry the full flavor of Asia's exotic cuisines, fit comfortably into almost any meal, transforming the menu without overburdening the cook.
Many of the recipes included here are enjoyed as appetizers in their native lands. Others are main dishes that have been reduced in size to fit the appetizer role. All maintain the authentic flavors and the artful details that make Asian foods endlessly appealing to the Western eye and palate.
The wide-ranging recipe collection includes dishes from China, Thailand, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam, stunningly illustrated in color photographs by Keith Ovregaard. Techniques unfamiliar to Western cooks are quickly demystified in Susan Mattmann's pen and ink drawings.
A detailed introductory chapter explains all the home cook needs to know about Asian tools, techniques, and ingredients, and even supplies simple recipes for ingredients that may be hard to find.
Joyce Jue is known for her culinary tours of Asia. Her book invites you on your own personal, expertly guided tour. Come along and experience some of the world's finest, most flavorful, and most unforgettable foods.
