We all love noodles but most of us are not particularly adventurous when it comes to cooking them: there are so many different varieties available that it can be hard to know where to start. In this exciting new book Vatch talks you through the essentials of making a delicious bowl of noodles and gives plenty of helpful tips on ingredients and cooking techniques. He reveals recipes for wheat, rice, egg, buckwheat and mung bean noodles as well as wontons and gyozas, as noodle dough can also take the form of wrappers. With over 100 inviting and varied recipes from China, Thailand, Singapore, Laos and Cambodia, and accompanied by stunning contemporary photography, this book is a tasty way to discover more about noodles.

'Just the mention of Eastern cuisine makes us think of mouth-watering plates stacked with fresh and colourful vegetables, and comforting broths bursting with heart-healthy superfoods. These diverse and delicious recipes-made using either rice, soba, soybean or egg noodles-from across the Asian continent mean there's no end of gorgeously nutrient-rich meal ideas to try.' --Top Santé
