    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.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)

      1. re: twj

        Totally agree with rasamalaysia.com - they're one of my goto sites.

        The rest I'm going to visit now, so thanks, twj. :)

      2. Do you mean "Web sites for authentic Asian cooking"?

        Or did you really want "authentic web sites" as opposed to the "fake" kind that offered info about Asian cooking?

            1. for chinese:

              it has over 200 video recipes.
              mainly chinese but many thai or vietnamese are included.

              for japanese:

              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.
