- About the Author
This book is a completely new edition of the out-of-print Methodist Girls’ School centenary publication of 1987. Designed as a companion volume to Ellice Handy’s My Favourite Recipes, it is also set to be a bestseller.
The 210 recipes in this book are not of the usual Asian fare found in other cookbooks. They are extraordinary recipes, developed by experienced home cooks, such as Coriander Chicken, Vietnamese Coconut Chicken, Buah Keluak Sambal, Foochow Pork Ribs, Sambal Lengkong, Baked Cheese Prawns, Fried Brijal Curry, Cashew Nut Curry, String Hopper Pilau, Mee Jawa, Shin Beef Soup, Soya Bean Nest Soup, Baked Seafod Rice, Coconut Chiffon Jelly, Sri Lankan Love Cake, and Coconut Bread Pudding.
The book is divided into nine sections for Poultry, Meat, Seafood, Vegatables, Noodle & Bean Curds, Soups, Rice Dishes, Desserts and Snacks, and a special one for making curry pastes. These unusual recipes, used by the contributors again and again for family meals and entertainment, are a welcome fresh addition to the Asian food repertoir.
