Written and photographed by the lauded (and talented) Alastair Hendy, this book set the standard for the food-and-travel-writing genre when it was published in 2004. 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.
