It's a teaching & learning cook book
I totally love the book. It is very easy to read and follow the steps. I have tried so many recipes in the book and my family loved them so much. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to explore Asian cooking or just simply as a gift. The hardcover comes very handy as I have re-read the book countless times. I bought this one first and then Asian After Work after. But the other one comes with paperback and the cover almost comes off...
I have been looking for an easy to follow asian cook book for a while, and then I finally came across this book! This is such a great book to have on your shelf - it gives you so many popular asian recipes, and it's broken down into categories (wok, poultry, vegetables, dessert, etc). Adam also provides great background information about equipment and techniques. Easy to find ingredients. Great layout, lots of pictures, very inspiring!
