Asian Cuisine

The flavors in Asian recipes are intense and exciting - and extremely wide-ranging. While every country in Asia has its own long-standing traditions, you can get hints of origin from the ingredients that echo throughout their classic dishes. Fiery chiles and tongue-numbing peppercorns? Think Szechuan. Pleasantly tangy fish sauce, noodles and slightly sour tamarind? Thai recipes, we're looking at you. Rich, garlicky barbecued meat paired with kimchee? Korean all the way. In short, there's no one way to approach Asian cuisine, so start by appreciating what each culture does best. Seek out authentic ingredients whenever possible, and don't attempt shortcuts: Many Asian flavors can only be developed with time.
