The Warm Glass Noodles and Edamame (p. 198) when compared to the myriad other recipes we worked our way through taste testing didn’t stand out with the same oomph as the other recipes for us though we found the tamarind a welcome addition to this dish and the mint a sweet note.

My only other concern about the cookbook is the chapters are divided by cooking method — “Steamed”, “Blanched”, etc. We capped off the meal with the Pasta and Fried Zucchini Salad (p. 254). I took several cakes to lunch the next day and shared one with my foodie boss telling him I was sharing a real treat with him as he scraped his plate with his fork trying to get as much of the yogurt sauce as possible on the tines of his fork.
