A large format and beautifully organized cookbook with great photos illustrating each step of the recipes. The author includes bits of history, personal experiences, and sample menus. A good book for someone who seriously wants to prepare Southeast Asian cuisine in their own kitchen. While I may not try any of the specific recipes here it did give me some inspiration for my own kitchen. I will probably take another look at some of the ideas before returning this book to the library.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0066214025, Hardcover)

Madhur Jaffrey's Step-by-Step Cooking fearlessly brings the intense flavors of Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India to American home kitchens. Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian made Jaffrey a household name, and her Indian cookbooks have garnered her wide recognition as a doyenne of Indian cooking. Here she extends that authority to take readers on a culinary tour of the Far East, and offers more than 150 easy-to-follow recipes that bring the extensive palate of Asian culinary treasures home.

The tantalizing recipes represent the broad spectrum of flavors and cooking techniques found throughout Asia. Hot, sweet, salty, and sour burst in popular dishes like Thai Hot and Sour Prawn Soup, and the intense flavors of fresh herbs shine in dishes like Vietnamese Aromatic and Spicy Beef Stew. Chicken may be poached, shredded, and tossed with a spicy sesame sauce for Bon Bon Chicken in Hong Kong; sautéed with bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and black beans in Malaysia; or smothered with a heady spice paste of chilies, shallots, and turmeric, and roasted whole wrapped in banana leaves in Indonesia.

An informative introduction includes helpful guidance on equipment and the various cooking techniques used. Invaluable tips, charming personal anecdotes, helpful menu suggestions, and gorgeous color photographs sprinkled throughout convey Jaffrey's deep passion for the foods and traditions of this stunning and vibrant corner of the world. --Robin Donovan
