-- Fresher, more modern approach than a Chinese cookbook -- better than the competition with more recipes at a lower price. The competitor's book has only 110 recipes and only covers Chinese. We have 150!

-- Sixteen pages of professional color photos of selected dishes show readers what the recipes should look like!

Pan-Asian cooking takes the best ingredients and flavors of many types of Asian cooking and blends them together bringing out the best in them all, often combining the many cuisines in a single meal. Using Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese dishes, spices, rice, noodles and techniques, you too can create an Asian feast in your own kitchen! Whether you prefer Pad Thai, spicy Vietnamese noodles, Indonesian style rice or classic Chinese lemon chicken, The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Asian Cooking can give you what you need to be an Asian chef! Includes techniques and tools, tips for maneuvering in an Asian market and more than 150 appetizers, salads, main dishes and sweets plus dinner menu and party food suggestions.
