Review
Trang, seasoned food writer and author of The Asian Grill, presents an extraordinary array of Asian dishes in her newest book. With a sharp, modern design and a friendly tone, the book helps the reader navigate the world of noodles, starting with their origin (Leijoo, China) and most common pairings (ginger, garlic, soy, scallions, etc.), then delving deep into the many varieties of noodles.

No stranger to Asian cuisine, Trang keeps her innovative ideas (such as plum-flavored noodles) from becoming too complicated or obscure, and suggests tips and valuable explanations throughout the book. Each chapter proficiently exhibits one noodle (wheat, egg, buckwheat, rice and cellophane)—plus a chapter on buns, dumplings and spring rolls—and includes a handful of vibrant, original ways to prepare each type. While some recipes, like green tea soba and smoked wild salmon rolls, are bite-size, others, like udon with braised sweet and spicy beef short ribs, are hearty entrees, shining a spotlight on the book’s subject.

Combining a fun, fresh layout with generally quick and easy-to-prepare dishes, Trang’s latest work is sure to find a spot in the kitchens of stylish foodies eager to explore the arguably under-documented land of noodles.
