Summary

From Unmi Abkin and Roger Taylor, owners of the popular western Massachusetts restaurant Coco and The Cellar Bar, come the secrets to creating bold, balanced dishes built on the foundational flavours of Asian cooking in the home kitchen.

Curry and Kimchi: Flavor Secrets for Creating 70 Asian-Inspired Recipes at Home Summary

Open up this little gem of a cookbook and find a world of new flavours to add to your dinner table! The 70 recipes are easy to follow, with short ingredient lists and bright photographs taken at Coco and The Cellar Bar, the authors' restaurant in Massachusetts. The book is organised around foundational flavour components, followed by recipes that use each flavour booster. Miso Honey Dressing lends full-bodied flavour to Honey Miso Noodle Salad, and Shoyu Ramen Broth (made in an Instant Pot) is the key ingredient in Coco Shoyu Ramen. Other favourites include Korean Bolognese (for Korean Spaghetti and Korean Sloppy Joes), Chow Fun Sauce (for Coriander Shrimp Chow Fun), Scallion Ginger Jam (for Clay Pot Miso Chicken), Hoisin Barbecue Sauce (for Hoisin-Glazed Baby Back Ribs), and Ponzu Sauce (for Miso-Glazed Cod Rice Bowl). On every page, Abkin and Taylor's chef secrets inspire readers to create dishes with freshness and clarity of flavour.

Curry and Kimchi: Flavor Secrets for Creating 70 Asian-Inspired Recipes at Home Reviews

"Curry & Kimchi has an effortless way of exploring the diversity of flavors throughout Asia, and the world. These dishes are thoughtfully balanced, beautifully prepared, and full of vibrant seasonal ingredients -- and most of all, I love the way cooking is a joyful and creative process in Unmi's hands." -- Alice Waters, Chez Panisse

"This innovative cookbook delivers bold yet balanced flavors, opening up a world of exciting flavors to cooks at any level. I'm thrilled to bring the recipes of these very thoughtful chefs into my kitchen." -- Virginia Willis, James Beard Foundation Award-winning cookbook author and chef

"When I read Unmi's story, it made me want to run into the kitchen and cook from this book. I fell in love not only with her warmth but also her sincere relationship to food. She may have just made an Asian cook out of me!" -- Joanne Weir, James Beard Foundation Award-winning cookbook author, chef, and host of Weir Cooking on PBS

"Chef Unmi Abkin has created a name for herself with a series of fusion-flavored restaurants in the Pioneer Valley of New England. In this debut cookbook, Abkin and Taylor (her partner and co-owner) take us on a swift, highly focused tour of Abkin's idiosyncratic culinary landscape. Where else will you find Instant Pot pork carnitas tacos rubbing shoulders with General Tso's tofu, or Korean bolognese with gochujang and miso paste? Sharply curated and intensely sauced, Abkin's creations are both manageable enough for the weeknight routine and eccentric enough to disrupt it." -- NPR's Favorite Books of 2019

"James Beard Award semifinalist Abkin brings her unique perspective to this collection of 70 recipes inspired by her Korean, Mexican-American, and Jewish heritage and her experience preparing Asian inspired cuisine." -- Booklist
