Seasonal recipes and tips

This section is dedicated to favorite seasonal recipes and cooking tips shared by Jim Becker, our Chinatown guide. Contrary to popular belief, Asian cooking is not terribly complicated. There are a number of pantry staples that are necessary to get started, but they are relatively inexpensive, easy to find, and last a long time. Part of the charm with Asian recipes is that much of the preparation can be done ahead of time, and in most cases, final cooking times are short.

Mealtime should be an enjoyable experience involving the entire family. Take advantage of the colorful, seasonal produce available in Asian markets to prepare some easy recipes that are healthful and taste great. Remember that recipes are only a guide, so feel free to adjust and improvise along the way. Pull out that wok, and let’s get cooking!
