This book is #veryasian

There is SUCH a wide variety of recipes in here, and I really appreciated all the different uses for matcha especially, and the wide variety of cheesecakes. The instructions are easy to follow and the book is formatted very well, so that ingredients and instructions don’t co-mingle on the page. I love the asides by the author, which are both informative and occasionally funny. Lastly, there’s brilliant photography. If you’re interested in levelling up your baking, I don’t think you can go wrong with Modern Asian Baking at Home. Four stars! Full list of recipes on my blog. Booksweet link. Storygraph link.
