I have a few...hundred suggestions. Any specific genre you're looking for? Vegetarian? Indian? Moroccan? If you're looking for an all-around well-tested classic, you've picked up a good one.

How about Chinese?   I never get to fix my Chinese craving without actually going to a Chinese restaurant and I wish I could satisfy my urges better than what I've done in the past. 

 

I do use good rice, which makes a huge difference.  I've had Japanese and Korean exchange students as roomates in college and they say that the biggest influence on their food in the U.S. is making sure they have properly prepared rice.

Thanks for the recommendation, TB!  I had the same problem with the add product on here, too... hmm...

Re: Favorite cookbook recommendation

I know people really like The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook:

 

 

 

Also, I've worked with Nina Simonds, an American woman who has written extensively about Chinese cooking. Here is one of her books, and here's a link to the complete list.

 

Classic Chinese Cooking

 

 

I hope that helps. Also, regarding Add Product, yep, we're working on that for an upcoming redesign. You can add an image by clicking on that tree icon, and you copy a link to an image by double clicking and highlighting copy image address. Then I add a link over the text so that you can link to the site.

 

Sorry about that!
