This book is filled with some of the most amazing Southeastern recipes I have seen. My girlfriend and I made the Malaysian noodles for the first time tonight and it came out perfect! She is new to cooking and I have been cooking for a while but it didn't even matter because the recipes are so clear and easy to follow. I highly recommend this book if your looking to spice up your kitchen a bit.
