« South East Asian Cookbooks I: Thai and satay | Main | Seed colonialism? »

February 12, 2004



there is this marvelous vietnamese dish that is the rage in chinese restaurants in kuching. it's a claypot dish with some sort of curry in it. not quite the same as indian curry but one that has coconut milk and is not too heavy as indian curry. it's cook here with huge freshwater prawns (shrimp). goes great with chinese pau @ bread that is fluffy and white.

is it in the recipe book? :)


If you want to explore a little more - say Laotian cookery, as well as Vietnamese cuisine, Rosemary Brissenden's South East Asian Food is well worth getting a hold of. The book's a classic. And it does just as it says on the cover too, taking you on a journey through the best cuisines I know of.


Anthea, thanks for the tip. I'll probably have to wait till my guilt feelings from the last big cookbook shopping disappear :-) before I even consider buying this, but it sounds great.

Wena, I have to go and look. Don't have the book here. I'll let you know

Apparently there is now a weblog dedicated to nothing but pho. MMMMM!


(needs a better url though)


Bob, thanks for the link. I haven't had a bowl of pho in months... now I'm craving for one.
