I thought there would be more recipes, but mostly it was just sort of a picture dictionary. And I read it while I was very hungry with no food in the house, so it also made me mad. Not the book's fault, I'm just sayin. Read full review

What it is, how to use it, and some how to make. From spotted dick (which I would not make) to Tom Yum (which I would make). This book is not to read as a novel, but is a way to become a better chef. How to use Durian or Dragon Fruit, or how to make Kim chi, World wide scope. Read full review
