Burma: Rivers of flavor

by Naomi Duguid


Author Naomi Duguid travelled to Burma (Myanmar) numerous times over several years while researching this book. It’s far more than a recipe book: it’s an introduction to the diverse peoples of the country and their varied cuisines, traditions, and foodways (the recipes can be easily made in the typical home kitchen, too). Duguid dedicates the book “To the people of Burma, whose resilience in hard times, and generosity to a stranger, are remarkable and moving.”

from the publisher

Naomi Duguid’s heralded cookbooks have always transcended the category to become “something larger and more important” (Los Angeles Times). Each in its own way is “a breakthrough book . . . a major contribution” (The New York Times). And as Burma opens up after a half century of seclusion, who better than Duguid – the esteemed author of Hot Sour Salty Sweet – to introduce the country and its food and flavors to the West.

Newsletter: Recipes for the fresh spring harvest + Enter our Andaza book giveaway

Spring is the time when garden and field come back to life, when fresh green produce appears after hardier, earthy winter fare. Much of the spring harvest needs little preparation to be tender and delicious. Fresh leaves, shoots, and stems readily offer up their naturally sweet vibrance. In the Northern hemisphere we find the first asparagus, gather wild garlic, and develop a hankering for lightly adorned salads and young vegetables.
