I don't buy many cookbooks anymore. The internet has become the de facto place to get recipes. But, there are a multitude of recipes that will never make it to the internet. So, I'd buy more cook books but I just don't have the room for more, just yet.
The Far Eastern Cookery is one of those timeless cook books that is just stuffed with great recipes. The recipe I made today was the "Smokey Eggplants in Lime Sauce".
The recipe is really quite simple...except for charring the eggplants on a gas stove top. That takes time.
Here's the cover of the cook book. And here's the link to it on Amazon.
