A Complete Guide to Penang Straits Chinese Cuisine
While Nyonya cooking books come thick and fast this one is a little more unusual in that it's the result of two years research by the State Chinese (Penang) Association, a 'guardian of the Penang Peranakan (Straits Chinese) Culture' and the publishers to capture many familiar and many almost forgotten recipes of this distinctive creole cuisine. A Debbie Teoh was even used as the 'food tester' in the hope of ensuring the recipes' authenticity. 248 pages including colour illustrations of the recipes and much else besides. There is also an index of the recipes. Chapters include - A Brief History, Festivals & Festive Food, Nyonyaware, The Nyonya Kitchen, Cooking Methods, Ingredients, Sambal + Sauces, Pickles, Snacks & Starters, Kerabu, Vegetables, Soups + Stews, Poultry, Pork, Seafood, Rice + Noodles, Kuih, Sweet Broths + Drinks, New Year Cookies + Sweets and Confinement Food.
