Description: With the abundance of fresh produce readily available today, cooking Asian food has never been easier. Good Chinese and Far Eastern food need not be confined to restaurants -- these recipes have all been adapted for the Western kitchen, and the majority of dishes are quick and easy to prepare. 

Many dishes are stir-fried -- a technique that is not only extremely efficient, but healthy too. With its quick cooking time and use of wholesome ingredients, this method of cooking is ideal for today's modern lifestyles, enabling the busy cook to prepare meals in minutes without sacrificing flavor and nutritional values. 

The techniques section provides clear, how-to advice on flavorings and spices, fresh produce, cooking equipment, preparing ingredients and basic recipes. There are helpful tips throughout to ensure that all the recipes are easy to follow -- even for those entirely new to the delights of Asian cooking. 

As well as the more familiar and traditional dishes from southern China, such as Shrimp Toasts with Sesame Seeds, Seafood Wonton Soup, Sweet-and-Sour Pork, and Stir-fried Crispy Duck, The Asian Kitchen includes recipes from other parts of Asia, drawing from Thai, Indonesian, Singapore and Malaysian cuisines, which include dishes such as Lemongrass Pork and Singapore Rice Vermicelli. 

The Asian Kitchen provides a multitude of opportunities to sample dishes from all over China and the Far East and adds a completely new dimension to Asian cooking in the home.
