Asian Gracefully

Asian Gracefully

Adding Asian flair to your menu can be as subtle as incorporating traditional Asian ingredients and flavors into your favorite recipes, or as dramatic as offering some of the presentations that appear in this month's recipe section. Soup ideas include Chef Tom Fleming's Egg Drop Soup, Central Style from 214 Central in Dallas and Chef Brad Farmerie's Cervena Hot and Sour Soup, from Public in New York City.

Or, turn over a new leaf with Asian-inspired salads. Chef Beat Giger of Pebble Beach Resorts in California offers a recipe for Spicy Asian Noodle Salad. You'll find on the following pages other salad recipes, too: The Thai Peanut Slaw is an accompaniment for Popcorn Chicken, while the Southeast Asian Salad combines grapes and prawns. If casual flair is your restaurant's style, consider the Crispy Duck with Hoisin-Guinness Dipping Sauce, or the Sticky Shrimp recipe from Chef Chris Hollis of Blackstone Steakhouse in Melville, NY.

Finally, to wrap it up, check out the Lettuce Wrap with Hoisin Sauce, the Tuna Summer Rolls and the Salmon Spring Rolls with Spicy Plum Sauce Dip.
