Book Review: All Under Heaven

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

When I saw the description of “All Under Heaven” by Carolyn Phillips I knew it was a book I needed to have.  This book is perfect for me at the place I am currently with my Chinese cooking skills (read: novice) and I know this book will be one that challenges and inspires me for years to come.  This is the sort of book that becomes a family heirloom.  It is part encyclopedia of regional Chinese cuisine, part Chinese cooking instructor and part my new best friend that is sharing all of her best Chinese recipes with me.  I love the idea of introducing my family to cuisines of the world and this book is exactly what I need to share the cuisines of China with my kids and my hubby.  With so many enticing recipes it has been difficult to choose the few that I want to try first, but I have narrowed it down to Zhajiang Noodles (page 42), Crunchy Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp (page 105), Lemongrass Chicken (page 280) and Silk Road Fajitas (page 344).  This book is perfect for anyone that loves Chinese cuisine, loves learning about cuisine and not just cooking recipes and people that are looking for recipes that are fresh, new and something you just can’t find anywhere else.

I was provided with a copy of this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

Book Review: Cook Korean! By Robin Ha

I loved the idea of this book and when it arrived I was giddy when I flipped through it. This cookbook is SO fun! It reminds me why I love cooking so much: it is whimsical, a little quirky and brings a smile to my face. This book contains recipes/stories for the Korean food I need to master to make my life complete. Bulgogi (page 60) and kimchi (page 26)? Yes, please! It also has recipes for things I never knew I always wanted, like spicy octopus over rice (page 74), spicy beef soup (page 102) and spicy cold noodles (page 114). Yes, I like spicy and yes, I will add spice to the adult portions so the kiddos can get in on some Korean eating fun. This book is the perfect introduction to making Korean food at home and I can wait to dig in!
