    How do you go about finding recipes for using up unusual or exotic ingredients you have purchased?

    I do a search on google. For example: Recipes that use lemongrass.

    The 'Ingredients' option on allrecipes.com allows you to enter specific ingredients you wish to use. A list of recipes comes up that utilize the ingredients you entered. The option also allows you to enter ingredients you don't want included, so you can narrow the search.

    Another option is to search the indexes of your cookbooks, or cookbooks at the library and local bookstore.

    One of the first things I do is head to my bookshelves. I have a ton of cookbooks spanning different cultures and audiences. So I check the index in the back of my most popular books like the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook. Then if I can't find something there, I do what most people do: hit the web. Often I begin with the Food Network because I am familiar with the site and have used it for years. Then I do a simple Google search for the item in question.

    Depends how exotic?  If you're talking about a recipe from an obscure - little known country or part of the world, then you might run into problems.  Nevertheless, you can always try and Google the country, customs or place, as sometimes this'll work.  Furthermore, you can also try and see what well known countries or cultures are close to this particular place e.g., China is at the heart of Asia, and nearly all countries close to it have been influenced by its culture at one point or another in history.
