Staff Reviews

Hidden in what seems to be a colossal visual/printing joke (this very 1970's-era looking cookbook) lie various actual "traditional" Asian food dishes, such as "Mall Chicken" and "Chinesey Cucumber Salad," that will take many readers back to happy family outings at the food court. When I first saw it, I thought it was some sort of re-issue of a Reader's Digest book that my mother used to have. But no, these folks just did a wonderful love-letter to those of us old enough to remember the comfort of well done Moo Shu Pancakes. This is a wonderful gift for the nostalgic foodie or cook in your life. -- Moe F.

"This book reminds us of: Ivan Ramen meets Barefoot Contessa: How Easy is That?--with some of the ballsiness and spunk of Joe Beef."

Beholden to bold flavors and not strict authenticity, the editors of Lucky Peach present a compendium of 101 easy, Asian recipes that hit the sweet spot between craveworthy and stupid simple and are destined to become favorites. Your friends and lovers will marvel as you show off your culinary worldliness, whipping up meals with fish-sauce-splattered panache and all the soy-soaked, ginger-scalliony goodness you could ever want--all for dinner tonight. You'll never have a reason to order take-out again.
