Our customer reviews

This book is a worthy addition to my library of Asian cooking. Perhaps it is on the simplistic side, but the recipies do work and they are all [at least the ones l have tried] quite delicious. l think the author would do well with her second book [l hope] to be a little more adventurous. Well more
