I'm pretty sure there's no thread for this cookbook. But I love it! I regularly make the wildfire bowl with sunflower dressing. I'm just getting back into exploring this book and made the Jeya's noodles, which is also great. The technique for soaking rice noodles in cold water and then stir frying them with just a little more liquid is brilliant and makes the noodles infinitely tastier than simply boiling them then coating them with sauce.

Anyone else cooking from this book? What do you love?

I'm not sure which of the their books the recipes come from, because there's a lot of overlap, but I love their bowls. The Free Tibet bowl and the one with chickpeas and coconut curry sauce are my favorites. The other things I've made that I can remember offhand: gravy from the Thanksgiving dinner, tiger noodles, laksa rice, and a few of the salad dressings. Oh, and the homemade amba is really good.

I got one of the Fresh books out from the library quite awhile ago but I don't remember if it was this one or reFresh. Does Fresh at Home have the miso gravy? I love that stuff so much, I would bathe in it if I could.

I really liked the book (and renewed it the maximum number of times from the library), but that's when I was living alone. As I recall a lot of the recipes had nuts/sunflower seeds in them so I don't know how well it would work with my nut-allergic husband. Actually, we live within 4 blocks of a Fresh and we hardly ever go because there's not much on the menu that he can eat. But maybe I should borrow it from the library again and have another look!

Now I really want to stop by Fresh tonight and pick up some onion rings and miso gravy. Maybe I will...

I think the miso gravy is in ReFresh - I know because it's not in the one I have, but I borrowed the other two from the library at one point and diligently copied out the miso gravy and proceeded to make it four million times. Sooo good.

Being allergic to nuts and seeds sucks! Poor guy.

ah okay, it was ReFresh then. But this thread has prompted me to request Fresh at Home from the library!

Nice! Make a rice noodle stir-fry, you won't be sorry!

There's the reFresh thread where we discussed Ruth Tal Brown's cookbooks.
