Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mapo tofu

    • sck on March 29, 2014

      I usually like her recipes but this was a DUD. skip it.

    • Queezle_Sister on October 03, 2014

      Though I saw sck's comment, I didn't heed it. sck, I will never do that again! Disappointment at the dinner table, as this dish had no distinct flavor, though it seemed healthy enough with its peas and carrots. I even researched oyster sauce, and bought one recommended somewhere - serious eats? chowhounds? not sure. I selected this book for a cookbook club dinner, and last night was my test drive of this recipe (largely selected because I can make it in my electric frying pan, appliances still not hooked up). I will select something else. I don't know why people (such as this author) stte that tofu takes of the flavor of the sauce. I find it very difficult to get tofu to take up flavor, though of course if you take a bit of tofu with the sauce, you get the sauce flavor along with the bland smoothness that is tofu.

  • Seared scallops with sesame-ginger vinaigrette

    • lorloff on June 11, 2013

      Great. Be sure to under salt the scallops the dressing has sufficient salt. Is great by itself with the dressing as a light sauce served at the table.

  • Ten-minute Thai vegetable curry

    • lorloff on July 07, 2013

      Very nice easy curry. Delicious. Added shiitake mushrooms, green beans, garlic lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. Used 4 Tablespoons of red curry paste.

  • Asian slaw with wasabi-soy dressing

    • swegener on January 30, 2015

      This was very refreshing, and held up well in the fridge.

    Kudos must be given to the author for producing a good book in what is a very crowded sector.
