4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. Wang on April 11 2002
Format: Hardcover
I too, am a cookbook collector. My shelves are so crowded now that I have to think very carefully about any new additions. Hot Sour Salty Sweet has exceeded all expectations. It is beautiful, educational, entertaining, not to mention that it has wonderful, accessible recipes that taste authentic. Overall, it is the single best cookbook that I have purchased in the last few years and I have gotten many good ones.

Format: Hardcover
My copy had at least a chapter upside down. That's unfortunate as it makes it difficult to use. Having said that, I've cooked 2 recipies so far and they've both been good. I would write in and ask about the chapter being upside down before ordering this book though.

I bought this book after being at a friend's place a few times for dinner. I asked about the recipes that she used and each time it was from this book. The book is more than just a cookbook of fantastic, authentic food. It is also a photo essay of Southeast Asia. The authors have spent much time traveling the area and add gorgeous photos and tales of their experiences. I highly recommend this book for food lovers.

Alford and Duguid's book is beautiful, interesting, and the recipes are fantastic. Many of their recipes have become weekly standbys in my house. Their commentary is down to earth and helpful. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough for anyone interested in learning about or building a library in southeast asian cooking.

I can't cook because I can't quit looking at this book long enough to do so. Gorgeous print and photos. Bravo to the authors. Thank you for sharing your journey.

Wonderful combination of travelogue and cookbook.
Incidentally as a note to one of the other reviewers, the coriander plant is known as cilantro in the US. Coriander root is simply the root part of cilantro or coriander - just buy cilantro with the roots left on.

I am, admittedly, a coockbook hoarder. I have them everywhere -- even in the drawers of my nightstand and tucked under the bed. I read them cover-to-cover like other people read novels.
Hot, Sour, Salty, Sweet is, without a doubt, the best cookbook I have ever read. It is part travel novel, part anthropology lesson, and -- in large part -- a primer for westerners in Southeast Asian cuisine.
Easy to read, straightforward in instruction, its' only flaw is that -- in rare instances -- recipes may include items not available in even a metropolitan Asian market. (I have been to all of the Asian markets in Little Chinatown in Chicago and have yet to find coriander root!) But the ingredients are largely available at most Asian markets and even some larger supermarkets, and substitutions are often recommended.
The grilled chicken with hot and sweet dipping sauce has become a family favorite. The dipping sauce was so flavorful, so simple yet so complex in flavor -- I was surprised that I had made something so delicious.
Buy the book -- you won't be sorry!
