For generations The Complete Asian Cookbook has been the most well-respected and authentic cookbook on Asian food. Since publication in 1976 it has become one of the most iconic and influential cookbooks in publishing history, garnering a dedicated following worldwide. Now, for the first time, Charmaine Solomon's groundbreaking work has been divided into a series of six geographical regions, each with a complementary design so they may be collected as a set.

Asian cuisine has a wonderful range of culinary delights that can be simple, complex, fiery, mild, and tantalizing. With page after page of beautiful, authentic Asian dishes, the recipes in The Complete Asian Cookbook Series have been tested and re-tested to ensure the flavor and character of each dish is preserved. The labor-intensive traditional preparation methods have been cut back, making the recipes easy-to-follow for the home cook.

In Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos & Burma, the reader will find an invaluable introduction to the food, culture, and cooking methods of these countries, as well as common ingredients. Learn to cook steamed sesame and coconut fish, Thai red curry of duck with pineapple and lychees, or a green mango salad. Try your hand at Cambodian caramelized pepper pork, chicken with ginger shreds, or the delicious national dish of Vietnam, pho.
