    The Complete Asian Cookbook Series finds its origin in Charmaine Solomon's groundbreaking work into the delicious and diverse cuisines across fifteen Asian countries. Heralded as a classic when it was first published in 1976, the influential and iconic The Complete Asian Cookbook covers 800 traditional and contemporary dishes from many nations. For the first time, it has been divided into geographical regions in a beautifully crafted series, with the first three of the series being published this February: India & Pakistan; Indonesia, Malyasia & Singapore and Japan & Korea.

      Whoever wins will be a very luck cook. I have the original publication, very well thumbed, and it's great; hours of pleasure browsing and wonderful authentic meals. The list of alternative names for the spices is a real bonus when shopping.
