Author(s): Charmaine Solomon
This book will lead you down the aisles of Asian cuisine, from Goa to Kyoto, from Myanmar to Manila, shedding light on the shapes, aromas, colours and flavours that festoon these far-flung exotic lands. Charmaine Solomon's 55 years of experience - writing, cooking and exploring the breadth of Asia - is the ingredient that brings all other ingredients to life. There are over 500 recipes, made richer still by Charmaine's anecdotes and reminiscences. Heed her advice on Asian cooking techniques - learn how best to enjoy exotic fruits, such as rambutan, pulasan and mangosteen; and how to make super korma, curry, biryani and rabri. She also explains the health-giving properties, dangers and curiosities of many common foods.
