Summary from Goodreads.

With asian food becoming more popular, learning how to make them yourself may seem overwhelming. Modern Asian Baking At Home is here to help guide you in your endeavours in this wonderful cuisine.

Modern Asian Baking At Home has 7 different sections, which gives you a vast selection of recipes to try out. Basics and Confections, Sab’s Favourite Cookies and Pastries, Airy and Not-Too-Sweet Cakes, Bread and Yeasted Bakes, Treats Under One Moon and Holiday Bakes, Custards and Frozen, and Drinks are what sections the recipes are divided into.

My favourite recipes that I cannot wait to tryout are Quick Microwave Mochi, Monstrous Matcha Miso Cookies, and Hong Kong Dan Tat. Each recipe is very well laid out and described in a way that makes it very easy to follow, even if you have no experience with asian cuisine. Each recipe also includes a little description about what the baked good actually is, so if you have never heard of it at least you are able to understand what it is!

If you are interested in baking asian food, then Modern Asian Baking At Home is a great place for you to start.
