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.
