Are you looking for Asian food recipes? Stumped? Are you just not sure where to look? There are many resources for recipes out there, and even trying to find different ethnic food recipes isn’t all that difficult. Between the internet, book stores, libraries and even word of mouth- it’s simply not that difficult to find whatever kind of recipe you’re searching for.
One quick word of advice when looking for recipes of any type- make sure that before you try a recipe or purchase a recipe book, that you find ones that suit your cooking skill level. For example, if you need a recipe for shrimp fried rice, make sure you fully understand anything the recipe asks for, and that you have all ingredients before beginning. Try not to use a recipe that demands you poach an egg, unless you have poached an egg before or you understand what poaching means when cooking.
Asian food recipes can be found on many websites, especially those dedicated to cooking or food appreciation. If you have trouble finding exactly what you’re looking for, and you want to cook something specific, make use of the many forums, newsgroups and message boards that are out there on cooking sites. Chances are, you’ll come across someone who can help you find what you’re looking for or someone who has a recipe that perfect for you. All you have to do is post a message about what you’re looking for.
Another excellent resource for Asian food recipes is to go to your local book store or even a large chain retail book store, these types of stores have hundreds of different cook books in various ethnicity. You’ll be able to find a cook book that has exactly what you want or need if you go to one of these places. Another bonus to going to the store and buying a cook book is that you can thumb through it before purchasing it, to make sure it has what you need in it and explains things clearly.
Make sure, if you choose to buy a cook book, that you buy one specifically for Asian food recipes. You wouldn’t buy a Japanese or Sushi cook book if you’re wanting to learn different ways to make meatloaf, would you? The same rule applies no matter which type of dish you’re wanting to prepare. Make sure that you get a cook book that is appropriate for whatever type food you’re wishing to cook.
Likewise, it’s important to not purchase a full cook book unless it’s got other recipes you may wish to prepare at some point. Don’t buy the whole cook book just for one recipe, you’ll likely end up feeling it was a waste of money and not a logical purchase. Search for individual recipes before buying a cook book, that way you can even make your own cook book filled with things YOU like and will cook.
