REVIEW BASISBOEK AZIATISCH (BASIC BOOK ASIAN)
Regularly, new cookbooks are brought to my attention and occasionally I decide to review it so that you also know what is available in cookbooks landscape (and then you know if this is a book worth buying). Similarly, the basic cookbook Asian, which was sent to me, in which 300 recipes are described step by step. The book is written by Jody Wassalon and Emily Ezekiel. I can find this cookbook in different languages, but not yet in English. Maybe soon though.
TOPS FROM THE BOOK
As you scroll through the book you see that it’s title is greatly found. The Oriental recipes described are very clearly with text and photo. There are many different cuisines (Japanese, Thai, Chinese and Korean), and the famous dishes (Chicken Teriyaki, Pad Thai, Spring Flowers and Chai Mein) are also described in this book. But also some unknown dishes like Sunomono or Korokke are written down.
In the book are practical tips, such as how to cook with a wok and make perfect rice. A list of fresh products (with photo) has also been published as region-specific products.
A glossary is also clarifying a lot. And what I find superfluous is that you can search both by name and on ingredient. This book is finished with a hard cover. I love it when that’s done. Hardcover is the best in the kitchen
Are there any disadvantages? Not really. This book covers exactly what it described in it’s title and from experience I can tell you that the recipes are delicious.
In short, if you are looking for a book describing basic recipes from the Oriental kitchen, which are described step by step, then this is a book I can recommend.
And now this delicious recipe from the book:
