Lucky Rice by Danielle Chang

There aren't many any decent Asian restaurants in Helena. So I was interested in this book as an alternate to going without my Chinese food fix.

I really like the categories the recipes are divided 
into - Street Eats, Funky Foods, Asian Mash-ups (one recipe includes spam!), and Lucky Feasts, to name a few.  Coupled with short stories about the recipe, and including 'notes' on some of them, the recipes are clean and easy to follow.  The ingredients, for the most part, are fairly easy to find, even here in Helena, Montana.  Squid and octopus might be an issue, however. 

One dish I am really excited about trying is the Hawaiian Tuna Poke, using fresh tuna steaks.  This might get my non-fish-eating daughters to try some.  

If you are looking for yet another cookbook on how to make sweet-and-sour chicken, this is not the book for you.  If you are looking for one with 'street food' and other fun Asian-styled recipes, then you need to take a look through this one.  But not if you are hungry.

Note: "I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."
