The Authority on Asiatic cooking methods...
August 21, 2012 1:45 AM Subscribe
Larousse Gastronomique and Julia Childs cookbooks are in some sense considered reputable authorities on French Cooking, similarly The Silver Spoon is a reputable encyclopedic study of Italian cuisine and cooking.
Are there similar reputable and exhaustive books for various Asiatic Cuisines such as; Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Indian, South East Asia etc?

I'm particularly interested in Chinese and Japanese cuisines as these are more familiar to me and my attempts at home have been rather pathetic. Also Korean classics would be good - I love a good Beef Bulgogi.
Generally the cookbooks I"ve seen are a bit well dubious and seem to focus more on odd westernized interpretations. That I wouldn't trust if I was reading the equivalent of this for French or Italian cooking.
