The ultimate compendium of Asian food, this is the follow up to the best-selling cookbook, The Complete Book of Modern Classics. Modern Asian is the food we eat now - delicious little morsels to serve as finger food at parties, light piquant starters, some of which can also be served as lunch dishes. Main courses made from seafood, lean meat, chicken and duck, noodles and vegetables. Delicious side dishes which you can eat with non-Asian meals, and some wonderful desserts. Each chapter contains a 'star' recipe - the one that has become so popular it's now almost mainstream. It's a beautiful book with recipes that will convert you to modern Asian food.
