With his second cookbook, Asian After Work, Adam Liaw invites time-poor people to overcome their reservations about cooking Asian food at home and try their hand at recipes that are easy and quick to prepare after work. Adam introduces every dish with an anecdote, plus cooking tips that will help you on your way.
Recipes are categorised according to days of the week, with Saturday and Sunday reserved for slightly more elaborate recipes and to prepare certain staples in advance for the week, such as master chicken stocks, garlic and shallot oil.
However, Asian food is most frequently eaten out of takeaway containers. That, or welcoming more regular weeknight guests to your abode. Cookability The recipes range from easy to intermediate, but you might have to stock your pantry with a few new sauces and condiments, and potentially buy a wok, if you have never cooked Asian at home before.
However, Adam Liaw takes pride in the fact that most ingredients can be found at regular supermarkets. Must-cook recipe Fish-sauce roast chicken: this classic with a Thai twist will bring a refreshing change to your Sunday roasts.
Most surprising dish The Mille-feuille with chilli ponzu is a very comforting dish consisting of many layers of cabbage and pork. Twenty minutes and five eggs is a small price to pay for a skill you will have for the rest of your life. Forget your fear of cooking Asian food at home and get that wok firing!
