Top Comments Mardi @eatlivetravelwrite October 24, 2009 at 3:14 am Am so looking forward to getting my hands on this next month in San Francisco and have Jaden sign it! The Teacher Cooks October 24, 2009 at 5:09 am I am going to buy the book!!! The Today show will be taped while I am working. I really want to be able to do Asian food justice. This is just what I need to broaden my cooking skills. Thanks for the great review. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 24, 2009 at 5:11 am Elise, thanks so much for the review. I ordered my copy yesterday and can’t wait to get it! :) Dara October 24, 2009 at 7:23 am Great review! I’m looking forward to buying Jaden’s cookbook – delicious recipes, fabulous photos, and Jaden’s humor. meeso October 24, 2009 at 9:01 am Right on, Jaden! I’m definitely going to be getting my copy :) Congratulations! Kare October 24, 2009 at 9:07 am I just added this to my Christmas list. Looks like a great cookbook. Thanks for the review! Sheri October 24, 2009 at 10:15 am I’ve enjoyed the recipes Jaden posts on this site and loved the one I tried. I think I’m going to request that my local library buy this cookbook. They always want to know “what do people want to read?” and my answer will be “this cookbook!” SAS October 24, 2009 at 12:04 pm This is a fantastic cookbook – so much packed into one book, and fun to read! I think the best part is how Jaden is one of us, learning as she goes and sharing the process with all the pain and glory. It’s easier to try something new when even the “pro” admits her challenges! She also de-mystifies Asian ingredients, making everything seem within reach. Mow lucky are my friends? I ordered a stack of these for Christmas gifts! Lyndsey October 24, 2009 at 12:14 pm I am so excited about Jaden’s book. It was so lucky that she brought us along with her on her book writing journey. Jaden you’re thr best, and great book! Kristin October 24, 2009 at 2:10 pm I’m looking forward to getting this book! I think my family and I will enjoy it tremedously! ~K Deborah October 24, 2009 at 2:29 pm I am really looking forward to ordering Jaden’s book as soon as I return to the US in December. It looks amazing from what I have seen across the web but it isn’t available here in Italy right now. I love Asian food and after 6 months in Umbria I am REALLY looking forward to trying out some of Jaden’s amazing recipes. the domestic mama October 24, 2009 at 4:03 pm ooooo! I just recently discovered steamy kitchen, and I was thrilled when I got a comment on my site from JADEN herself! I was on cloud nine! But, now- knowing even MORE… I am on cloud TEN! Lol, can’t wait to get my copy of the book, GREAT review! Happy chomps to all! Lori @ RecipeGirl October 24, 2009 at 8:40 pm I’m hugely sad that I don’t have my hands on this cookbook yet… still waiting for it to come in the mail! Can’t wait to see Jaden w/ Hoda & the drunk ;) Tatiana October 25, 2009 at 4:25 pm I am eagerly awaiting it’s arrival, which Amazon.ca for some reason takes 1-3 weeks to ship, thanks for a tantalizing review, which actually made me want to take you up on the ginger challenge :) joey October 25, 2009 at 4:39 pm Sounds delightful … right ‘up my alley’! Thanks for sharing the book review:) Cassy October 26, 2009 at 8:21 am Good review and very interesting book. I think I’m going to buy it and try some of its’ Asian recipes. Hope they are easy to do. Thank you. Mary October 26, 2009 at 8:55 am Wow! Martin Yan reviewed her book?! Awesome!!! Susan October 26, 2009 at 1:04 pm I saw the clip you linked for her Today show appearance on twitter (I had missed the show). Thank you! It was refreshing to see the hosts both so attentive to the guest chef for a change. Jaden came in prepared and was not at a loss for personality or words. She was a natural! I can’t wait to get the book. katrina October 26, 2009 at 1:05 pm Great review, Elise! I can’t wait to order this – one for me, two more for Christmas presents. And wasn’t she great on the Today show? Hi Katrina, Jaden was awesome on the Today Show! She totally held her own with the hosts. ~Elise Marsha @ RegionalBest October 26, 2009 at 1:33 pm This book is so gorgeous! I made the Shrimp Pad Thai over the weekend (on the cover). I’ve never made Pad Thai in my life! Turned out fabulous and was easy to make. Gregrie October 26, 2009 at 2:34 pm For those of you that don’t have her web site in your favorites, your missing out on alot of Jaden’s great dishes that are already on line and ready to make. Steamy Kitchen will become a great addition to your PC. Estela @ Weekly Bite October 26, 2009 at 5:32 pm Elise, thanks so much for this book review! I plan on ordering it soon! I love Jaden’s blog! Pioneer Woman October 28, 2009 at 1:06 pm I have it. I love it. It’s a beautiful cookbook with so much personality. Totally visual. I made beef with broccoli and yummmmmmmmy! Jaden “done outdone” herself with this one! Elana October 29, 2009 at 9:28 pm I am a huge fan of Jaden’s, she is an amazing, generous, lovely person. I can’t wait for my copy of her book to arrive! Deborah Dowd November 2, 2009 at 6:50 pm Don’t you love it when a fellow blogger hatches a book! I love Jaden’s blog and I will be hitting Amazon for her book.
