This beautifully photographed book is a wonderful kitchen guide to South-east Asian food and cooking, bringing together nutritious and aromatic ingredients, culinary customs and the traditional recipes of these regions. The wide selection of dishes are all low in fat and are ideal to include as part of an everyday healthy and low-fat eating plan.
The collection of 100 authentic dishes captures all the delicious, home-cooked flavours of South-east Asia. The recipe sections include soups, appetizers and snacks, fish and shellfish, chicken, duck, pork and beef, vegetarian main dishes, accompaniments and salads, and desserts.
There is a wonderful variety of ideas: choose from familiar classic favourites such as Crispy Wonton Soup, Spring Rolls with Mushrooms and Pork, Sweet and Sour Pork, Thai style, or Yellow Chicken Curry.
