Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"If I could give this book a big hug, I would. It's not just that the recipes sound so appealing and doable in my own kitchen. It's the words and stories of all these women (and the occasional grandpa) that make the recipes come alive. This feels different than coming across a new recipe on a blog. It really feels like there's an intimacy and a connection to past generations as you flip through the pages... Really, who among us hasn't secretly wished for an Asian grandmother at some point? I know I have, and it's usually been while staring in confusion at the burned contents of a hot wok or while wrestling with uncooperative homemade soba noodles. This book by Pat Tanumihardja is like discovering that I have a long lost relative who I can call on in these moments of culinary distress."
The Kitchn

"I've been looking forward to Pat Tanumihardja's book The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook for a year...When I finally got a copy in my kitchen, I was thrilled: Not only did Pat do a stupendous job collecting stories and recipes, Lara Ferroni worked her photography magic for the ingredient glossary and the recipes. It's compelling, kind-hearted and gorgeous, just as I expected."
Edible Seattle

"If you aren't blessed with an Asian grandmother, this cookbook will guide you through the steps to make an authentic Asian dish without having to travel across the globe."
The Christian Science Monitor 

"Seldom does a cookbook come along that makes you not only want to spend hours in the kitchen preparing its recipes but also read its pages from cover to cover like a novel. Patricia Tanamihardja’s Asian Grandmothers Cookbook caters equally to our sentiment and appetites with a thoughtfulness and deep cultural understanding presented as 130 beautiful, traditional recipes, along with heartfelt profiles of the Asian grandmothers who have created them for decades."
Delicious Living

"...with this book, Tanumihardja has cracked open the door to some of those mysterious kitchens, allowing non-Asians to finally enjoy all sorts of dishes that rarely appear in restaurants and which — at least up until now — could only be tasted when a friend’s popo or lola or ba ngoai would carry something insanely aromatic to a table surrounded by family and the occasional hungry friend."
Zester Daily

"If this gorgeous cookbook fulfills the author’s quest for extended family, we are all the beneficiaries! The warm-hearted profiles of ten seasoned cooks add a rich personal history to the recipes. Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Laotian, Korean, and Filipino cuisines are covered, as well as the inevitable mingling that happens through family migration around the globe. I love the recipes for their use of “real” flavoring ingredients instead of the typical bottled sauces. Prefacing the recipes are an invitation to cook intuitively, a chapter called 'The Asian Pantry,' and a clear explanation of Asian cooking techniques, setting the mood for a joyful adventure in cooking."
Edible East Bay

"...an absolutely fascinating study of cooking anthropology. Each story of an Asian grandmother living in the US is interesting from a historic perspective, how they got here, what they did when they arrived (especially if you’re a history nerd like me). Then many of the recipes show how the dishes went from the original, authentic version, to the dish made as it could be in America, with the ingredients available. Whether substituting chayote for hard-to-find Bengali white pumpkin, or finding a way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers in rice porridge (jook), this book is a fascinating study in cultural evolution."
The GastroGnome

"If you missed out sitting by your grandmother’s stove, or your family ethnicity doesn’t happen to match the food you know you were born to eat, Patricia Tanumihardja’s book goes a long way toward addressing that need...a charming book..."
The Boston Globe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great variety of recipes (and ingredients adapt well to the US supermarket), but hard to look up/find recipes eg by ingredients 6. Juni 2010
Von xfrozenfirex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's especially useful because the ingredients are adapted to what is available (read:easier to find) in the U.S. market, yet they still maintain (somehow) that feel and taste of authentic Asian cuisine. Also, there are foods from many different regions of Asia, which makes for many interesting dishes and varied tastes. They even had a dish from Myanmar (not a very well-known country, but my mom was born there and reminisced about her childhood years enjoying that dish.) There are also pages with photos that help you identify what some of the ingredients look like. The pages that have "wisdom from the grandmothers/grandfathers" are interesting, but I personally didn't care too much for the history/personal accounts. Others might be, though, and they are insightful passages.

The detriment to having a physical book (as opposed to something that is online) is that it's a tad difficult to look up recipes, for example by main ingredient or even region. The book is categorized by meal type (like "appetizer" and "main dish".) There is an index, but sometimes I couldn't remember the name of the dish.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Asian dinner is a winner. 6. Oktober 2015
Von Exidor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just received this book the other day. So I haven't had time to examine it thoroughly. I like what I have seen thus far. There are some nice photographs ( I would have liked more). It is a nice addition to my library of cookbooks. It doesn't focus exclusively on the cuisine of China or Japan; it includes Nepal, the Philippines, Viet Nam, and others. If you like stories about immigrants, there are biographical entries about the grandmothers whose recipes are featured. In short, if you enjoy Asian food this book is right up your alley.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Very basic cooking 8. März 2014
Von JKom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you don't have any books at all on Asian cooking, you might find this useful. But otherwise, there were very few recipes I didn't have in my other books, that were extremely similar to these. It's a nice addition, mostly for historical purposes, but I wouldn't judge it essential.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Far exceeds expectations! 21. Januar 2014
Von Cassidy Gleaton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this as a gift for my sister and after I looked through it before wrapping it I became so jealous! Not only does it have a huge variety of different Asian culture foods, but it also has the basic steps of doing pretty much everything: from cleaning rice properly to picking the correct noodle for your dish. Then this book blew my mind when it actually had biography's of real Asian grandmothers! Not only could you learn about these amazing ladies but you could also follow their own recipes for their favorite meal! If you have any doubts about buying this book, don't! It's well worth the $16 and shipping fee. I might even have to buy one for myself!

2.0 von 5 Sternen If you are interested in reading this as a book ... 8. Oktober 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are interested in reading this as a book, it's OK. As a cookbook, it is very difficult to find what you are looking for. If I were Asian and knew exactly what I was looking for perhaps it would be easier. But I've looked in ingredient, by nationality, by names I knew from restaurants.
