A Splash of Soy, Everyday Food From Asia, Lara Lee, author

What a treat it was to get this book. The picture of the author on the cover, is a breath of fresh air, and the illustrations in the book are mouthwatering invitations to food. Preparing these recipes will be fun, not work! From the first recipe for Tom Yum Bloody Mary to the glossary at the end, the book leaves no stone unturned.
I believe that everything you need to know about how to make a wonderful Asian dish, from easy to a bit more complicated, is between these pages. The descriptions of the dishes are enticing, and the prep time needed is never overwhelming. The recipes seem easy to follow, and the little anecdotal personal comments will surely enhance the cooking experience. There is something for everyone in this book, including those with diet restrictions. It should become a kitchen staple. Sharing good food is a positive experience that should be encouraged.
I absolutely was overjoyed to read a piece of advice from the author that concerns an issue I have dealt with in my own home. I always have a running argument with my grandkids and my husband about cleaning up as you go along. They want to make a mess and leave the cleaning up for later. Lara Lee agrees with me. Clean up as you go along!
