Delicious, modern, versatile Asian-influenced recipes from an international rising star of cookery
Asian food has it all - contrasts of flavour and texture, straightforward dishes you can eat straight from the wok in socks and pyjamas, as well as celebratory meals your friends will talk about for months after.
A Splash of Soy is full of everyday family recipes you'll love to eat. It is the simplicity and usefulness of soy that this book is named after, an ingredient so impressive it can transform a meal with just a splash.
In this book, Lara gives us 80 game-changing recipes that close the gap between classic Asian dishes and easy, quick-to-table meals. Here you'll find inventive brunch ideas like a Tom Yum Bloody Mary, spicy sides like Sambal Patatas Bravas, easy noodles like Cheesy Kimchi Linguine with Gochujang Butter and many more punchy curries, stir-fries and rice recipes from glazed meat to fragrant veg. She also includes pantry swaps and vegan swaps so these fuss-free recipes can adapt to your own busy home kitchen.
