If you’re looking for a cookbook with unique Asian recipes, you’ll want to immediately pick up a copy of A Splash of Soy: Everyday Food from Asia, by Lara Lee. This excellent cookbook includes recipes from all over Asia, and, while many of the recipes are popular and well-known, there are dozens of new and unique recipes that most of us haven’t heard of. And the recipes are mouthwatering.

There is an excellent list of suggested pantry items which helps when shopping at an Asian grocery store. Many of the recipes, however, call for ingredients that most already have in or fridge, freezer, or on our pantry shelves. The recipes are preceded by a paragraph or two with information, notes and tips, giving readers insight on the culture connected with the recipes. This is not only helpful, but also fascinating. The cookbook is well-written and the recipes are laid out in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first followed by step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow.

Also included in this cookbook are beautiful, professional photographs of most of the recipes, making it difficult to decide which recipe to prepare next. There are so many good, mouthwatering recipes that cooks who have a taste for Asian dishes will stay busy cooking for months.

All told, this excellent cookbook belongs on every cookbook shelf; it will become a favorite with everyone who loves Asian food. Highly recommended.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
