A main ingredient in Asian cuisine, noodles are now more popular and more widely available than ever before, and this book shows how to use them in many delicious ways. In addition to the appetizing array of dishes, Cara Hobday shares her vast experience of Asian cuisine and offers a guide to the different types of noodles and their suitable cooking methods.
A section covers the basics of the Asian cupboard, giving a detailed explanation of the more exotic ingredients and their uses. Recipes range from tempting traditional dishes such as Hot and Sour Soup, and Spicy Noodles in Peanut Sauce, to contemporary innovations such as Artichokes with Egg and Noodle Stuffing, and Poached Chicken with Lemon Dressing served over Iced Noodles. Serve up a Herbed Noodle Salad for a light and healthy lunch or warm up a cold winter's evening with a soothing bowl of Japanese Ramen Noodle Stew.
The recipes are all written in a clear, accessible style, and will be a source of inspiration for any occasion, at any time of year.
