to asia with love

Australian born author Hetty McKinnon describes her wonderful new book as 'a homecoming, a joyous return to the humble yet deeply nurturing flavours & meals of my childhood as a chinese girl born in australia' & 'a celebration of the exciting & delicious possibilities of modern asian cooking'. Recipes range from the traditional - salt & pepper eggplant, red curry laksa & congee to Hetty's uniquely modern interpretations such as buttery miso noodles, stir fried salt & vinegar potatoes & grilled wombok caesar salad with wonton crackers. All share an emphasis on seasonal vegetables & creating irresistible asian flavours using pantry staples. This is asian home cooking unlike anything you've experienced before.
