Product description

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.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
