A Malacca-Portuguese Cookbook
Celine J Marbeck
The world is sprinkled with tiny communities left behind by departing colonists to fend for themselves. Some of the more fascinating are those left behind by the Portuguese in Asia since they managed to continue maintaining many aspects of Portuguese culture, including the language, with little or no contact with the 'motherland.' One such is the Jenti Cristang community in Malacca. Here the author shares a practical set of recipes demonstrating the unique blend of Malay, Straits Chinese, Indian, Portuguese and Dutch influences of the community's exotic blend of cooking. 168 pages Please see the scan of the contents page for further details.
