The book itself is excellent--I've owned a hard copy for years and used it a great deal. It's falling apart and I wanted the ebook as a replacement. Unfortunately, it fails as an electronic recipe book due to having no index. Cross-referencing and indexes are essential for cookbooks. I would far rather have purchased a pdf version.
An incredible Asian cooking guide, now I know why they call Charmaine Solomon the Queen of Asian Cooking. It has a massive number of top recipes as well as a lot of information about Asian cooking. The only thing that would have made it better was a recipe index there are so many recipes to go through to find the one you want, however it is set out by country. .I rave to everyone about this book and do believe if you like Asian food I greatly doubt there is a more informative recipe book with so many enticing recipes. Thank you Charmaine for sharing your knowledge and recipes in such a generously priced book.
Looks okay but is missing a couple of vital things. A contents page and importantly pictures. So few pictures - how am I supposed to know what the meal should look like let alone be enticed to cook it. I am an average cook hoping to be inspired by delicious looking recipes. Now I don't know whether or not I will be inspired. Back to Pinterest.
