This cookbook starts off with an incredibly helpful table listing the possibly problematic ingredients in dozens of Asian ingredients and condiments. If, like me, you've ever spent a long befuddled afternoon scrutinizing the labels in an Asian market, you will be thrilled with this section - and maybe even more so with Russell's suggested substitutions for the hopelessly gluteny ingredients. That section alone was worth the cover price for me, but the recipes that follow are also simple and delicious. The Japanese Pub Style Fried Chicken is particularly awesome. Grab a copy and prepare to feast, my fellow avoiders of gluten!
