KIRKUS REVIEW

Not just sauces for pasta but a realm of tempting recipes from China, Japan, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Argentina, etc. Ms. White is pushing the homemade product but store-bought noodles will do. Arranged from soup to dessert, they include North African Soupe a la Armed (vegetables, lamb and lemon), the Greek Plaki (white fish filets, garlic, and olives), and a variety of flat and tubular noodles in combination with feta cheese or white kidney beans and chick peas or lamb and eggplant as well as standard dishes--noodles Romanoff or linguine with clam sauce. You'll need access to an Oriental grocery for the more exotic ingredients--Hoisin sauce, dried seaweed, fresh ginger, sesame oil--but the recipes sound appealing enough to search them out. Calorie counters or those on the cholesterol watch can bypass the creamier sauces (and even the noodles in a few dishes), but everyone will appreciate the goofy, animated Koren drawings of noodles leaping into hot pots, carrying a toothy fish, or rinsing off in the shower.
