This beautiful book, both written and photographed by the talented Alastair Hendy, is an outstanding example of the food-and-travel-writing genre. Hendy’s location shots and luscious food photography set a moody tone, and his beautifully written, close observations of the sights, scents and surrounds are utterly transporting. No library of Southeast Asian food is complete without this book.
Soups, noodles, curries, stir-fries, rice dishes – Asian food has been adopted by the West and it seems we can't get enough of it. Simple to prepare, clean-tasting, and stylishly presented, it is the ideal food for home cooks who want great food with minimal effort. But Alastair brings much more than the food of Asia to your table – he brings extraordinary travel photography taken over many years too. Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Bali and India are all covered in this irresistible book.
