This is a pretty good reference book for pulling together a great, quick and tasty meal. Ok so I live in Australia where even in country towns it is very easy to buy Asian ingredients - and I have a choice of Asian cookbooks at home - however, this will be my go-to book now for tasty, fresh and fast meals. The sauces alone made this a lucky purchase for me. Grandmother's fast dumpling dipping sauce is delicious. The stocks are simple and as the foundation to great soups, a very handy reference. I bought kindle, now I am going to buy the book and prop it open on my cookbook stand!
