authentic web sites for asian cooking
For Korean food, the best one is maangchi.com. There are a few of them out there that aren't bad, but hers is really the best. It's most authentic, and she's really fun and cute. She has a very big Fanbase all over the world and she has won a lot of awards as well. But The best part about her aside from her personality and the great food is that most of the site is entirely advertising free. A lot of the recipes and cooking websites out there are almost entirely promotion based or subscription. The way that she makes revenue from the website is almost entirely invisible. You can support her by buying her cookbooks on Amazon, self published books that are very cheap, and some other things that she promotes, but other than that there is nothing at all that is intrusive. She's wonderful.
Here are a couple of good ones.
http://www.homemade-chinese-soups.com/soup-recipe-index.html I really like this site. This is the index. The homepage talks a bit about her background.
http://www.vahrehvah.com/ for Indian
i went to she simmers site and saw the crispy fish with green mango http://www.shesimmers.com/2010/09/tha...
and i said "bingo" -- i'm going to tear apart my trader joe's mahi mahi burger, and fix it this way! thanks.
(i'd seen shesimmers before, and remember bookmarking the blog. there are so many talented bloggers...and so little time).
and on the koreanhomecooking site, i've bookmarked something to try that is not "authentic" but sounded really tasty -- a bulgogi burger! ;-).
That link didn't work for me, but I googled it, and this one did:
I find that many "authentic" websites are in their home language, especially the Asian countries. For example, I use almost exclusively Vietnamese-language websites for Vietnamese food, especially regional cuisine. But hey, that corn pudding recipe from Ravenous Couple blog looks delicious!
it has over 200 video recipes.
mainly chinese but many thai or vietnamese are included.
about 40+ video recipes. ( it is sort of entertaining)
mainly japanese but some are chinese.
about 50+ video recipes. (the chef's got great skills
)you can learn from basic onigiri to very complected desserts.
I also like Cooking with Dog quite a bit. Additionally, for Japanese cooking, I like http://japanesefood.about.com/ for Japanese basics, kyoto cooking circle http://kcc.fc2web.com/recipe.htm, Yukari Sakamoto's http://tokyostation-yukari.blogspot.com/ who has a new cookbook out, Yasuko-san's home cooking (diary of home cooked meals)http://www.nsknet.or.jp/~tomi-yasu/index_e.html, Mrs. Donabe's Rustic Japanese recipes for cooking with a donabe http://naokomoore.com/, Japan Food addict - Japanese dishes both washoku and yoshoku style http://www.japanfoodaddict.com/, Japanese Food Report as mentioned below and justbento.com and justhungry.com.
These are ones I visit often:
www.rasamalaysia.com -hits on Malaysian, Singaporean, Thai, and Chinese, to name a few
www.vietworldkitchen.com -mostly Vietnamese and Chinese
www.userealbutter.com -go under "recipes" tab, then "savory asian"- features authentic Chinese, dishes that I ate growing up
www.maangchi.com -very good Korean recipes
www.hannaone.com -our very own hannaone's Korean recipe website
www.mykoreankitchen.com -more Korean recipes
www.chezpim.com -good Thai recipes, but you have to search for them
www.fuchsiadunlop.com/cooking/ -companion website for her books, I like her Sichuanese recipes
www.importfood.com -go to Thai Recipes, has an array of authentic Thai, some accompanied by street vendor videos
Tottally agree with www.rasamalaysia.com - very accessible recipes!
http://ilovethaicooking.wordpress.com/ - not a lot of recipes, but pretty authentic.
http://www.indonesianculinary.com/ - Indonesian
http://chubbyhubby.net/blog/ - lots of asian recipes from different countries (I think they're from Singapore, so maybe SE asia centric recipes)
