My first stop is probably my Larousse Gastronomique (if I could be bothered picking this heavy tome up), otherwise its straight to foodsubs.com.

Failing that its good ole' Google.

I'm glad the site helped you all. I thought it was very interesting. I'd have to travel about 50 miles to get to an Asian Market, but if I ever do, I'll know what I'm looking at.

Actually I did not buy it. It was just one of the things I recognized seeing once I looked at that website. Next time I am at that market though I will be sure to buy one so I will be looking to you for recipes

GB, just a forewarning, it's REALLY REALLY bitter. Though people still love it!

I think there is references to it on DC as well. Remember a discussion a while back. GB, if you make a soup out of it, make sure to drink the broth as well, since you'll be simmering the veggie/meat for a long time, all of the vitamins and medicinal stuff to make your body "cool" will be in the broth too.

"The 'Asian Grocery Store Demystified."

Hello, friends,

This is a very useful little book by Linda Bladholm, published by Renaissance Books, L.A., in 1999.
