Publishers Text

Here is the future in a bowl: over 100 slippery, slurpy recipes, from Cantonese Wonton and Noodle Soup to Malaysia's famous Curry Laksa, Korea's Chap Chae, and even Indian Sevian Keer Dessert Noodles. Look up the right noodle in the beautifully photographed noodle IDs, then choose and easy, healthy noodle recipe and discover the power and passion of the noodle.,p>

This is no mere grab bag of meals; these are recipes with roots: recipes that reflect regions, religions, ways of life. Terry Durack has made noodle-slurping noises from Hong Kong to Hunan, from Bangkok to Beijing, from Seoul to Singapore, and from Taipei to Tokyo in his search for the best noodle dishes on the planet.


These are noodles that feed the soul as well as the body. In addition to delicious recipes, Durack's fables delve into the world of the noodle, crossing bridges into the past, finding love at the end of a pair of chopsticks, and peace at the end of a long life. Such is the power of the noodle, the world's most nurturing food.


TERRY DURACK, Australia's most influential food critic, credits Vietnamese pho ga with saving his life on numerous occasions. He lives in Sydney and firmly believes that noodles are essential for human survival.
