Noodles The New Way

Noodles are colorful, tasty, inexpensive, quick and easy to prepare. They’re the perfect everyday food for family and friends, and provided the ingredients are prepared, you can cook a one-dish gourmet meal in less than 10 minutes.

In Noodles the New Way (Quadrille Publishing, Paperback; ISBN 9781844004782; 144 pages; $14.95), internationally celebrated food writer Sri Owen explains how to identify, prepare and cook all types of noodles.

In each of the easy-to-follow recipes—featuring vegetarian, seafood, poultry and meat ingredients—Owen presents delectable new combinations of ingredients and flavors that reflect today’s palates and eating habits, and that also pay homage to ancient Asian principles of creating a balance of textures and flavors. A treasury of recipes for basic stocks, sauces, pastes, dressings and condiments enables the home cook to build original noodle dishes from scratch and helps to elevate noodles from the everyday to the spectacular.

Recipes in Noodles the New Way include:
Coconut, Tofu and Pumpkin Noodles
Pan-fried Scallops with Endive and Apples on Parsleyed Egg Noodles
Balinese Ground Duck Satays on Fried Noodles
Barbecued Pork Spareribs with Shitake Noodles
Cold Soba Noodles with Lobster Meat Salad
Pad Thai
Egg Rolls

Noodles the New Way is available at major retailers including Barnes & Noble and
