Perhaps the most inspiring food in the world comes from this region. I am always amazed by the combination of flavours and the freshness of the food, let alone the diversity of cooking styles. The difference of styles within India or China is immense, let alone the very unique styles of Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia.
However, many of the recipes from this region contain huge numbers of ingredients, ingredients not easily available, or worse still ingredients with the same name that taste totally different when bought in the Western world. This can all be very daunting. So I have chosen a set of recipes that attempt to do justice to the region, or at least taste great if not genuine.
