Food Of Northern Thailand, TheFood Of Northern Thailand, The by Bush, Austin

The food of northern Thailand is a world away from the highly refined, royal court- and Chinese-influenced style of cooking in Bangkok--the Thai food that most of us are familiar with. It's a cuisine with its own distinct identity, one that is rustic and earthy, meaty and fragrant; one with roots in the Thai repertoire but with branches that extend into unfamiliar areas; a cuisine that feels ancient, but is ever evolving. A writer, photographer, and travel-guide writer, Austin Bush has lived in Thailand for nearly 20 years. In this book, Bush travels across northern Thailand to talk to the region's home cooks, academics, restaurateurs, writers, and hawkers. Their recipes and stories, along with Bush's photographs, capture the people, countryside, markets, and of course, dishes and cooking techniques of northern Thailand.

With more than 300 recipes, spectacular food photography and interspersed with enchanting anecdotes, Feast is a comprehensive and dazzling mosaic of Islamic food culture across the globe.

Kandaqstan: The Empire Of Taste, The Melting Pot Of FlavoursKandaqstan: The Empire Of Taste, The Melting Pot Of Flavours by Jahabar Sadiq

In one word, Kandaqstan brings up images of crowds and long queues patiently waiting at a stall or restaurant for a plate of steaming hot rice and a mélange of curries with meat, fish, eggs, ladies' fingers, coconut chutney and green chillies. And it comes from Penang, from the heyday when it was a bustling free port and workers, stevedores and even top maritime officials wanted a quick meal that had the daily dose of protein and carbohydrates, with flavours that would make you eat any time of the day and night. That meal is called Nasi Kandar: rice and dishes that were originally in pots within wicker baskets balanced on a wooden pole and brought to the gates of the 24/7 ports in George Town and Butterworth. What is it in this meal that people rave about, lust for, travel for miles and line up for? And where are the best nasi kandar? What gets the maximum five ladies' fingers on the Kandaqstan rating system?
