  • A love of Asian foods and a desire to provide simple ways to cook them drove prolific food writer Habeeb Salloum to write Asian Cooking Made Simple: A Culinary Journey along the Silk Road and Beyond. This latest release from Sweetgrass Books details how to cook up the tastiest Vietnamese pho (noodle soup), how to add a little Szechuan spice to dinnertime, and how to create mouthwatering Indian curries and Middle Eastern kebabs. The book itself, complete with color photographs of the dishes, is a journey across half the world, starting in China and working westward to the Mediterranean.
