    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    Veteran food writer, instructor and consultant Hom (East Meets West, Ken Hom's Chinese Cookery, etc.) displays his considerable talents in an enticing collection that draws upon several Asian cuisines. Fresh, colorful fare is introduced by intelligent notes discussing serving suggestions and recipe origins. The versatile repertoire will enhance meat-based as well as vegetarian meals, as Hom explains when he suggests serving bean sprout salad with grilled meats or spinach in oyster sauce at a barbecue. He improves the volume's accessibility by commenting on techniques and ingredients as well as by listing some of the recipes by their suggested uses. Thus asparagus with tangy mustard dressing or crispy scallion omelette serve as light and quick, one-dish meals; Vietnamese-style vegetarian spring rolls or hot and spicy walnuts are in the "do ahead" category; and pineapple fried rice or rainbow vegetables in lettuce cups are crowd-pleasers.
