    Fast cooking at a high temperature is a key to Oriental cuisine. The rapid, minimal cooking helps preserve the flavor, color and texture. If you are serving Italian, Indian, Mexican, U.S. midwestern, southern and southwestern cuisine, here is a change of pace for dinner. Vegetables and meat or without meat can be changed as to what is available in the refrigerator or garden. 2007-2013 Netta Belle's Choice cookbookinabox "Reg. U.S. Pat. & Trdmk Off."
