Asian Food and Cookery


Welcome to Asian Food & Cookery

Welcome to my pages on Asian Food and Cookery. My name is Liz Canham and I love cooking, particularly Indian food. I find nothing more satisfying than grinding fresh spices, frying onions and garlic, grating fragrant ginger and ending up with a wonderful curry or stir fry. If I don’t have time for creating something complex, I just open my cupboard and select a few spices to sprinkle on a boring chicken breast or a plain pork chop, transforming it into something exotic. Ground cumin, coriander and a pinch of chilli powder can make all the difference between a dull meal and an exciting one.

As you browse the site, you will find pages filled with articles containing information on ingredients, cooking equipment, serving dishes, preparation and anything else relating to Asian food, taking us all on a journey through the region and its cuisines.

Asian food is diverse and varied, with rich and exciting flavours quite strange to the Western palate. It reflects many cultures, religions and historical origins as well as availability of ingredients.

There are at least eight major national cuisines and dozens of regional variations so we’re going to travel widely through China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, The Phillipines and Thailand.

Please come back often and visit the Asian Food and Cookery Articles as well as our pages which offer Asian Food Cookery Books and cookware for your Asian food.
