For the estimated three million Americans suffering from Celiac disease, wheat allergies, and severe gluten sensitivities, Asian food is usually off-limits because its signature ingredients--noodles, soy sauce, and oyster sauce--typically contain wheat. In the Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen, food writer Laura B. Russell shows home cooks how to convert the vibrant cuisines of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam into gluten-free favorites. Authentically flavored dishes such as Crispy Spring Rolls, Gingery Pork Pot Stickers, Korean Green Onion Pancakes, Soba Noodles with Stir-Fried Shiitake Mushrooms, Salt and Pepper Squid, and Pork Tonkatsu will be delicious additions to any gluten-free repertoire. Along with sharing approachable and delicious recipes, Russell demystifies Asian ingredients and helps readers navigate the grocery store. Beautifully photographed and designed for easy weeknight eating, this unique cookbook's wide range of dishes from a variety of Asian cuisines will appeal to the discriminating tastes of today's gluten-free cooks.

This book proves that Asian food can accommodate a gluten-free diet, and it is an excellent introduction to Asian cooking even for those who don t have gluten allergies.

Laura Russell s debut cookbook delivers mouthwatering recipes with reassuring headnotes. This is an amazing book and one that is much needed for those of us who crave Asian foods but need to eat a gluten-free diet.
Diane Morgan, author of The New Thanksgiving Table and Gifts Cooks Love
I m so excited to see The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen in the world. Laura Russell clearly cares deeply about feeding us great food like Sweet Potato Noodles with Beef and Vegetables, Steamed Sea Bass with Sizzling Ginger, and Korean Green Onion Pancakes without any fear of us growing sick. Finally I can learn how to make dumplings, gluten-free!
