What should my next asian cookbook be?

In the mood to expand my Asian cooking frontier. I have a good set of cookbooks, ranging from Thai (Tommy Tang's, Keo's), Asian fish (Roy Yamaguchi), classic Chinese (Babrabra Tropp, Leung, Key to Classic Chinese), modern fusion (Michelle Yeo, Occidental Tourist).

The goal: Great weekenight Asian food. am fine with unusual ingredients,a nd have cooked for awhile. not interested in making sushi.

Thoughts welcome.

  1. If you don't have "Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge," by Grace Young, I think you'll enjoy both the recipes and the stories.

      Thanks! On a similar vein, have you tried:
      1. My Grandmothers Chinese Kichen
      2. Harry Hung ( a Hunanese cuisine book)
      3. The 7th daughter
      4. Asian Grandmothers

    2. older books with great recipes and ideas for inspiration: Terrific Pacific Cookbook, Big Flavors of the Hot Sun (goes beyond Asian).
