Publishers Text

Heaped on big plates, Sichuan beef and broccoli and Indian chicken tikka masala are timeless comfort foods, to be sure, but there’s a brand-new style of Asian cooking that’s giving them a run for their money. It’s more about grazing through small plates than sinking into one big one. It’s more about pan-Asian fusions--so-called "third culture" foods, the cooking of the Asian diaspora--than about each culture’s oldest traditions. It’s more plant-forward than meat-centered. It’s irreverent and fun and incredibly delicious. And it’s all captured in this amazing book.

Kat Lieu—the blogger and online personality who presides over the Subtle Asian Baking corner of the enormously popular Subtle Asian Traits online community, and who is the author of Modern Asian Baking at Home—serves up more than 80 inventive recipes for vibrant vegetable dishes like Sichuan-style fish-fragrant eggplant and umami-packed braised shiitake mushrooms, plus quick noodle dishes for super-easy lunches. You can enjoy dim sum at home any day with tricks and food hacks like rice-paper shrimp dumplings; delight in quick-fix matcha ramen bowls and simple miso soups; or make street-food favorites like Taiwanese popcorn chicken in the air fryer, or highly customizable bibimbap bowls for busy-weeknight dinners. And there are Southeast Asian favorites like cold-papaya salads, streaming hot phos, and spring rolls with surprising things inside and punchy chile-crisp coatings on the outside.
