Product Description

From Amazon

And so what is the new way with noodles offered by Sri Owen? Pretty much the same as the old way, as it happens, with a few unexpected ingredients and flavour combinations thrown in. But, since the old way with noodles is as good a way of eating quickly and extremely well as anyone has ever come up with, there is nothing to complain about and a great deal to celebrate. Most especially when a cook as accomplished and cosmopolitan as Sri Owen is in charge. We are dealing specifically with noodles here, rather than the broader family that includes pasta, so the general emphasis is on Eastern Asia and its outposts--Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, Sri Owen's native Java, Vancouver. Noodles of all types are included, from the robust buckwheat soba of Japan to the delicate "cellophane" noodles made from transparent bean starch. The recipes are quick, well within the technical capacity of anyone who has clashed wok on stove, and unfailingly delicious. Many are one-dish affairs, like the elegant Soba Noodle Soup with Shiitake Mushroom and Tofu or the wonderfully spicy laksa recipes; there are tangy, refreshing salads (Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls with Herb Salad stands out); while others are main dishes, with the noodles usually forming a dressed bed for a main item such as fish, chicken, beef or pork. There is even an exquisite recipe for boned quail stuffed with noodles and herbs. All this is backed up by information on the main noodle varieties, with instructions on making them where suitable for the home. Stocks, spice pastes, relishes and condiments are also on offer. An invaluable book, then, not only for noodle addicts but for anyone willing to let themselves be seduced by the pleasures of companionable slurping. --Robin Davidson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love the way this book looks...every page made me hungry. But the recipes are bit difficult to follow and they all seem to be missing some essential ingredient. In fact, 3 out of the 3 recipes that I made--following the recipe faithfully--were terrible. Give this book a miss.

Disappointing Nov. 24 2002
By Sarina Nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although I enjoy exotic recipes this cookbook offers very little more than eye candy. The instructions are multilayered and intricate, often involving hard to find ingredients. Should you actually be able to finish a recipe in one go you will find hardly enough to feed one person and the taste does not equal the effort exerted. Definitely a disappointment.

All Pictures No Substance June 1 2011
By Rose GM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I tried a few recipes from this (yes beautiful but) useless cookbook. They all turned out horribly. I tried one recipe for noodles with lamb kofta and it called for three tablespoons of red curry paste. I'd never used red curry paste before so it was partially my fault but when I tried the kofta, my tongue almost burned off. I love spicy food, but this was an obvious mistake. And unfortunately, this cookbook is FULL of them.
