Front Cover
Bantam Books, 1997 - Cooking - 194 pages
You're probably sick of eating pasta for dinner every night. And you probably love Asian food. And you probably reach for the take-out menu to satisfy these cravings, since you believe that cooking Asian meals yourself would be too complicated, too difficult and beyond your culinary ability. Well, basically, you're wrong. You can incorporate delicious Asian cuisine into your cooking repertoire. Don't reach for the nearest take-out menu! Reach for Pan-Asian Express. This book is a lively collection of 100 main-dish recipes from all over Asia--from China and Japan to Indonesia and Thailand and to lesser known regions--and features either traditional recipes with a twist, or new inventions with authentic Asian taste. The recipes are all designed to work in American kitchens with minimum preparation. Exciting meals can be made in minutes, providing a welcome alternative to the usual fare. In order to simplify and speed up the cooking process, the book features an introductory section on how to stock your pantry with Asian condiments, information on techniques and equipment, and each recipe will be accompanied by serving suggestions, as well as ideas for dressing them up for company.



Pan-Asian Express provides a way for you to cook your own Asian meals without forcing you to resort to the giant tomes on the subject (which is the only thing currently on the bookshelves). Written in a fun, inviting, accessible and easy-to-follow style, this book offers a way to bring new ideas, new techniques and tantalizing new tastes to everyday cooking.
