The New Mrs Lee's Cookbook
by L.C. Koon
The New Mrs Lee's Cookbook: v. 2: Straits Heritage Cuisine
Mrs. Lee Chin Koon first published Mrs Lees Cookbook in 1979 at the age of 70. With more than 50 years of cooking experience, Mrs. Lee wrote the cookbook in order that her grandchildren and future generations would continue in the tradition of Nonya cuisine. Mrs Lees Cookbook has since had numerous reprints and has become widely accepted as an authority on Nonya cuisine.
29 years later, Shermay Lee, her granddaughter is relaunching the cookbook for a new generation. This revised version makes it possible for any novice to cook classic Peranakan dishes such as Ayam Buah Keluak, Mee Siam and Pong Tauhu Soup. New useful sections such as a glossary of ingredients and basic kitchen equipment, illustrated step-by-step guide to basic cooking techniques and other sections have been added to make Peranakan cooking more accessible. Each recipe is illustrated and is a step-by-step guide.
In the 19th century, people of all races flocked to Southeast Asia to trade and seek new life. Among their traditions and beliefs, they also brought with them the cuisines of their hometowns, which blended over time. The New Mrs. Lees Cookbook Vol. 2: Straits Heritage Cuisine is a collection of recipes that testify to this unique culinary heritage.
