    Just what I’d hoped this book would be… easy….I love my Asian cookbooks but too often they involve deep frying or velveting. No deep frying in this one. The recipes are very doable and the layout of the book is one of the clearest I’ve seen. The pantry is great with clear pictures of the brands they are using. Do get the Spicy Chili crisp….it’s great in so many things. I’m off to find that Sun brand ramen for the Ramen pesto….and the HonDashi. Okay, unconventional —some of the recipes are but, this is Lucky Peach…. On the other hand I’m glad to see a classic recipe for Hainan Chicken Rice that doesn’t overcook the chicken…great recipe. At the other end of the spectrum is Mall chicken without the deep frying…..Going to try that one instead of putting General tso’s sauce on Popeye’s nuggets. Definitely looking forward to the Miso Claypot chicken made entirely in the rice cooker although, there are directions for a dutch oven. I’ve cobbled some of their sauces fr…

    Easy Asian recipes with relatively accessible ingredients? The core concept of this cookbook is hard to write but Peter Meehan and the Lucky Peach editors nailed it!The opening pages cover the ground rules for the book – 1. No frying and 2. No subrecipes (#2 they admitted to deviating from a tiny bit). In addition, the authors were thoughtful about limiting the required equipment. There are pictures of spices and other ingredients to stock your pantry which is very helpful for people who are new to asian cooking or products whose labels are not in English.There are a ton of recipes included – including many familiar recipes you might see at restaurants such as Kung Pao Shrimp, Beef Satay, Miso Soup, and Dumplings. There are also a lot of other Asian influenced recipes that sound awesome but are not as traditional (such as Miso Clam Chowder, Sichuan Pork Ragu, and Lamburgers).The recipes in this cookbook are not limited to a single country but have in common that they can be made by the…

    1. No Frying2. No SubrecipesThose two lines had me from the start. This is truly an easy cookbook with recipes can be made on a weeknight (easy tasty stir-fries) to a fun weekend project (dumpling making). The book arrived this week and I’ve made the pork dumplings and the mayo-shrimp recipe. Both were streamlined and super delicious. I find this cookbook really exciting, as it delivers on flavor and simplicity. Already one of the most used cookbooks I’ve purchased in a long time….

    I’m in love. This book is the bomb! I collect recipe books–it’s a disease. Especially when you consider that I can almost never follow a recipe. I don’t know what it is about writing recipes, people think they need to be complex and multi-step before they’re worth the money. So I use them “for inspiration” and then do whatever I want.This one, I will probably follow all the recipes. They’re easy, they’re not fiddly, and they are bursting with flavor. I love the pictorial depictions of the ingredients. I did end up buying a few things that my very-well stocked pantry didn’t have, but I could easily have chosen simpler recipes.Tonight, I made Sichuan pork ragu and dry fried green beans. Amazing! I voluntold (when you tell your kid he has to volunteer to help you) my 16-year old son to gather the ingredients for the sauces for both while I got to cooking. It made it a breeze and dinner came together really fast.I think this book is good if:1. You’re willing to invest in a few ingredient…
