- About the Author
Let me take you on a stroll through the streets of multicultural Penang and show you the heritage street food I grew up eating; the food I long for most when I am away from home.
Penang Makan is infused with little tales of life on the island and shines the spotlight on its famous hawker culture and authentic street food recipes. Featuring over 50 recipes from Asia’s most diverse street food city - from wok hei-flavoured char kuay teow to spicy coconut broth curry mee to thirst-quenching pink ais tingkap and much more, these recipes will transport you from your kitchen to my island food paradise.
Home cook, cookbook collector, and now author, Dayana Wong is a woman of style, with a passion for cultural heritage. It has been her dream to write a beautiful cookbook since she was a child. Her love of food and culture was ingrained in her from young by her Malay mother and Chinese father. She grew up learning how to cook and appreciate traditional dishes from the matriarchs of her family; her fondest memories as a young girl revolve around cooking and sharing meals with loved ones.
In this book, she shares personal childhood memories of growing up on a little island ‒ Penang in Malaysia ‒ and offers tried-and-tested recipes of famous street food from her hometown in an approachable way. Dayana has gathered over 50 recipes of local favourites and added little personal touches that she now wants to share with you.
