Description: Of the hundreds of cookbooks published each year, few are as eagerly awaited or fill such a marked need as Bruce Cost's Asian Ingredients. Five years in preparation, this book is the only guide to the fresh, preserved, and bottled ingredients flooding our markets from Asia. 

Written with genuine expertise and prodigious talent, Bruce Cost's book not only identifies every ingredient from ginger to Shaoxing wine in beautiful prose and with dazzling black-and-white photographs, it also supplies crystal-clear instructions on how to choose them, use them, and keep them fresh. 

A unique one-of-a-kind source of information, it is also an exquisite cookbook. Recipes include a full range of dishes. Among the 130 easy-to-prepare, utterly scrumptious dishes are Grilled Lemon Duck, Asian Pesto, Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Soft Shell Crabs with Ginger and Black Beans, Cha Gio (Vietnamese Spring Rolls), and Sweet Rice with Mangoes. 

Aside from its value as a handbook for anyone who cooks, Bruce Cost's Asian Ingredients should firmly establish him as one of this country's premier cooks, as he is already recognized by his colleagues.
