I think that Asian foods are probably my favorites. The flavors are so pungent and distinct. I cook more asian recipes then any other and the food never seems to last very long so I guess everyone else here likes it too. The ingredients can be adjusted to whatever pleases your palate, but the posted ones are the way we like them. The apricot flavored white wine I used was Fetzer's Gewurztraminer... just don't ask me to pronounce it.
