Daily Nonya Dishes: Laok Hari Hari - Heritage Recipes For Everyday MealsDaily Nonya Dishes: Laok Hari Hari - Heritage Recipes For Everyday Meals by Tan, Lloyd Matthew

This cookbook gives recipes for the food that Babas and Nonyas of old ate for their breakfast, lunch, dinner and in-between every day. This food is not the festive cuisine of Ayam Buah Keluak, Babi Pongteh, and Bakwan Kepiting that are the staples of many Peranakan cookbooks available in bookshops. The daily Nonya dishes are more simple fare, but no less delicious. The author also includes traditional dishes that have almost vanished. Thus, this book is not only a fresh, and welcome addition to the canon of Peranakan cookbooks, but is also a valuable documentation of the food enjoyed by Babas and Nonya around the family table in the heyday of Peranakan culture.
