Outdated ingredient lists
am 1. März 2000
I use Ms. Solomon's Thai cookbook all the time, so I naturally bought this one, thinking it would be a bargain and a nice introduction to other Asian cuisines.
However, I find I never use it. I have the first edition -- with a bit of luck the recipes have been updated -- and the ingredient lists are about twenty years out of date in regard to what is available in American supermarkets. Ms. Solomon also specifies canned Asian ingredients like water chestnuts, when fresh substitutes (jicama, in the case of water chestnuts) are freely available.
