Neil Perry's Spicy hot beef and tofu.
Neil Perry's Spicy hot beef and tofu.

Build your own Asian banquet this weekend from a selection of sticky, sweet and spicy dishes from Neil Perry.

We've put together a few options for you to pick and mix your menu from. Start with steamed wontons or crunchy lettuce cups, and work toward an old-school dessert of banana fritters and ice-cream.

During the week try a filling brown rice pilaf, a Vietnamese pho-inspired chicken and noodle soup, and a pasta sauce made from pantry staples.
