How to get started with Asian Cooking

Asian cooking is all about balance.  Just like yin and yang, the key to great Asian food is to balance out opposites.  All you need to do to understand this concept is look at a menu in an Asian restaurant.

One of the first things you are going to learn about Asian cooking is it is about 90% preparation and 10% cooking.  You will have to learn how to chop.

Also, in most cases, all you are really going to need in the way of cooking is one good skillet .  Preferably, you will use a special type of skillet called a wok.

Once your ingredients are prepared, the wok is heated and a small amount of oil is added.  A few seconds later, you are all done.

The staples of Asian cooking are easy to find.  Because of the migration of Asian people, supermarkets catering to this demographic are common.  But most of your ingredients can be found in any supermarket or fresh food store.

Then it’s just a matter of learning how to manipulate the ingredients with spices herbs and seasoning.  There are several cookbooks available, and there are many websites and blogs that will actually give you Asian recipes.  Soon, you will start having fun manipulating the recipes to your own tastes.

Adding Asian cooking to your diet will be a healthy lifestyle choice for your family.
