There is a fine art to Asian cooking that many of us never realize. To create the perfect dish requires time and effort, something not many of us have in this mad-rush era. Take-out seems an easier option, but a good home cooked Asian meal is possible with very little fuss and just a little bit of ingenuity, creativity, and a slow cooker.

Kelly Kwok learned the art of Asian cooking in her mother’s kitchen. Her parents didn’t own a slow cooker, so the process was very involved and time consuming. As a young mother, Kelly discovered that using the slow cooker allowed her time with her children while an exotic gourmet Asian meal was in the works for the family’s dinner. Once her children were a little older and her time was freer, Kelly took the time to actually write down her slow cooker Asian recipes that she had created over the years.

In her book, The Asian Slow Cooker: Exotic Favorites For Your Crockpot, Kelly presents each of her recipes with a brief description of the dish, an organized list of ingredients, clear instructions, and a beautiful photograph of the finished meal ready to serve. Her recipes cover all possibilities, from the ever popular General Tso’s Chicken to Spicy Mongolian Beef and Pineapple. There are even recipes for wraps and open-faced sandwiches, and no meal is complete without a sweet conclusion. This is a delightful collection of Asian recipes; a beautiful addition to any cookbook lover’s library.
