Description: Found everywhere from gigantic, bustling noodle shops to street-corner vendors, noodles are a staple of life in every city, town, and village throughout east Asia. And now noodle shops are popping up in cities across America. Not only is eating noodles (also known as slurping and canoodling) healthful, being low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates, noodles are both affordable and easy to prepare at home. The Noodle Shop Cookbook is the first complete guide to Asian noodle recipes with recipes from China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Jacki Passmore, internationally known expert on Asian cookery, first explains the basics of noodles including the different types -- fat and thin Chinese egg noodles, Japanese ramen, soba, and udon noodles, Vietnamese rice vermicelli, and many more. She gives recipes for making fresh noodles and for the basic stocks and broths that are so essential to good noodle soups, and includes a glossary explaining uncommon terms, from shichimi, the seven-spice mixture from Japan, to nam pla,Thai fish sauce.
Noodles can be pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried, or boiled, and combined with every- thing from bok choy, bean sprouts, and straw mushrooms to tofu, fish balls, and sliced pork and beef, depending on your tastes. All of your favorites are here including Chiu Chou Noodles in Sesame Sauce, Spicy Singapore Noodles, crispy Thai Mee Krob, and Teriyaki Soba. For vegetarians, there's a chapter of meatless like Vegetarian Soup Noodles and Vegetarian Pad Thai, and the final chapter includes the author's own personal noodle creations -- Spicy Shrimp in a Tangle of Noodles, Peanut-Sauce Noodles, and many more.
With helpful sidebars and instructive illustrations making sense of everything from reheating noodles to cutting chili flowers, The Noodle Shop Cookbook is the authoritative cookbook on the subject.
