2013 IACP Award Winner--Culinary Travel!
A dazzling collection of recipes and travel tales from a renowned, award-winning cookbook author.
The fact is, some books simply need to exist. Burma: Rivers of Flavor is one of these. Here is an alluring cuisine from a country that, like a kind of beautiful Buddhist Sleeping Beauty, is awaking from fifty years of isolation to take center stage. At the crossroads between the great Indian subcontinent to its west, Southeast Asia to its east, and China to its north, it’s an amazing place in between. Burma is culturally rich and complex in many ways, but perhaps nowhere more than in its extraordinary food culture. Here, Naomi Duguid demonstrates how its simple recipes manage to be elegant and earthy at the same time. The book features photographs throughout--of the finished dishes, of people, of a hauntingly beautiful land--as well as travel tips, a history of Burma, extensive glossaries, and a bibliography.
