Asian Food: Pan-Asian Food

This category is for those dishes that use ingredients from more than one Asian tradition. For example, oyster sauce is Chinese, but using it with a Japanese ingredient like daikon would make it "pan-Asian." Sometimes this is a judgement call based on the proportions of ingredients used in a meal.

Asian Food: Fusion Cuisine

This category refers to dishes that blend Asian and non-Asian ingredients. It can also refer to dishes that seem somewhat more generic, yet still retain a strong Asian component. Like "pan-Asian," this is often a judgement call.

Non-Asian Food

I know it seems somewhat eccentric to claim that Indian food is not "Asian" food, but the Asian food that this blog is devoted to has many differences from Indian food. The main one is Indian food's reliance on dairy products, which other Asian cuisines pass by. Indian food's reliance on spices is something that has influenced some Asian cuisines, but which is very different from others' approaches to seasoning: in China you can basically get by with garlic, ginger and onions and Japanese cooking is even more more restrained in the seasoning department.

Non-Asian Food: None of the Above

This is for those dishes which I throw together without much worry for where something hails from. I am much less knowledgeable about European cooking than about Asian cooking, so when I cook with western ingredients, I feel like I'm cooking from some generic western tradition as opposed to a specific regional tradition from a certain country. Hopefully this will change as I learn more about cooking.

Beef in vermouth
Beef stew porridge
Chicken pieces with lime
Egg noodles
Flounder poached in white wine sauce
Green beans and pine nuts
Grits Italiano
Indian spice-rubbed pork chops
Leftover turkey and fettuccini
Mushroom-cheese quesadilla
Pan-fried chicken strips
Pasta with porcini-red wine sauce
Plain rosemary chicken
Porcini chicken noodles
Porcini marsala fettuccini
Porcini sake fettuccini
Red wine turkey thigh
Rice-stuffed game hen
Saffron orzo
Sake-porcini fettuccini
Simple frittata
Sliced sirloin in red wine sauce
Turkey cutlet in red wine sauce

Ingredients: Vegetarian or Mostly So

If there's an asterisk after an entry, that means there is some non-vegetarian content in the dish. Usually this means it involves a sauce like oyster sauce or fish sauce.
