    Celebrity chef, Asian cooking expert and TV personality Jet Tila has compiled the best-of-the-best 101 Eastern recipes that every home cook needs to try before they die!

Sample recipes include: The Last Pad Thai Recipe You'll Ever Need, Grandma's Lo Mein, Classic Korean BBQ Shortribs on Coke and G'Day Satay Lamb Chops.

    Chef Jet was raised in a diverse family—half Chinese and half Thai—and in a diverse part of Los Angeles, where he was exposed to both restaurant and home-cooked foods from all the major food cultures of Asia, giving him a uniquely broad experience in Asian food culture. He battled legendary Chef Masaharu Morimoto on Iron Chef America and is currently a judge on Cutthroat Kitchen on the Food Network. Jet Tila’s first book presents his best versions of the best dishes from Asian cuisine. The book will have 101 recipes and 60 photos.

    Asian Tofu Discover the Best Make Your Own and Cook It At Home
    ISBN: 9781607740254
    Publication date: 01/03/2012

    From sleek, silken tofu with delicate toppings to piping-hot fried satchels in a robust sauce, tofu provides a versatile canvas for the intricate flavors and textures that Asian and vegetarian cooks have long enjoyed. America has embraced tofu as a healthy, affordable ingredient. And while it has been welcomed into sophisticated mainstream dining, tofu is often hidden in Western guises and in limited applications. In her third intrepid cookbook, celebrated food writer and teacher ANDREA NGUYEN aims to elevate this time-honored staple to a new place of prominence on every table. "Asian""Tofu"'s nearly 100 recipes explore authentic, ancient fare and modern twists that capture the culinary spirit of East, Southeast, and South Asia. There are spectacular favorites from Japan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and India, as well as delicious dishes from Taipei, San Francisco, Santa Monica, and New York. Andrea demystifies tofu and interprets traditional Asian cuisine for cooks, sharing compelling personal stories and dispatches from some of the world's best tofu artisans along the way. For those who want to take their skills to the next level, the tofu tutorial clearly outlines tofu-making technique, encouraging readers to experiment with the unparalleled flavors of homemade varieties. But time-pressed cooks needn't fear: while a few recipes, such as Silken Tofu and Seasoned Soy Milk Hot Pot, are truly best with homemade tofu, most are terrific with store-bought products. Some traditional dishes combine tofu with meat in brilliant partnerships, such as Spicy Tofu with Beef and Sichuan Peppercorn and Tofu with Kimchi and Pork Belly, but this collection is predominantly vegetarian and vegan, including the pristinely flavored Spiced Tofu and Coconut in Banana Leaf and vibrant Spicy Lemongrass Tofu Salad. And innovations such as Okara Doughnuts reveal tofu's more playful side. For health- and eco-conscious eaters and home chefs who are inspired to make the journey from bean to curd, "Asian Tofu" is the perfect guide.
