Comments: We would be embarrassed to admit how long it took us to start cooking Asian food. Once we found out how easy it can be and how delicious we can make it at home,… well, let's just say the local Asian restaurants have probably noticed a difference.
Corinne Trang's Noodles Every Day will convince just about everyone how easy it is to cook Asian noodle dishes. If you haven't been doing it for years, you'll wonder why. And if your excuse was that you couldn't understand Asian noodles, or how to differentiate among them, that excuse is now gone. With this book, you'll understand all the differences, and you'll know how to put them to use.
The book includes information and recipes from Korea to at least Indonesia, and just about everywhere in between.
Chapters are defined by the type of noodle – wheat, egg, buckwheat, rice, cellophane – and also feature their cousins, buns, dumplings, and spring rolls, as well as relevant basic Asian ingredients, basic equipment and techniques, basic condiments and stocks, and a section on mail-order sources. Some ingredients are going to be hard to find unless you have great access to a variety of Asian markets, but the author has suggestions for substitutions everywhere a hard-to-find ingredient is mentioned.
