      I have such fond memories of this cookbook- it was the first and the best of Australian cookbooks for all sorts of Asian food. My copy is badly stained with curry and new one- updated too I think would be wonderful.

      This is such a great giveaway!!! The asian food is not very popular yet in my country but I have a great taste for it!! I find they combine very nicely the proportion of vegetables and protein, while we spanish people use vegetables in a much smaller proportion. Exciting!
