Mrs. Lee Chin Koon first published "Mrs. Lee's Cookbook" in 1979 at the age of 70. With over 50 years of cooking experience, Mrs. Lee is widely accepted as an authority on Nonya cuisine. She wrote the cookbook in order that her grandchildren and future generations would continue in this cooking tradition.
Twenty-nine years later, her granddaughter, Shermay Lee, updated the cookbook for a new generation. This revised version makes it possible for any novice to prepare classic Peranakan - Chinese Malay dishes such as Ayam Buah Keluak, Mee Siam and Pong Tauhu Soup. New sections such as a glossary of ingredients and basic kitchen equipment, and an illustrated step-by-step guide with clear instructions and methodology have been added to make Peranakan cooking more accessible. ~Winner Gourmand World Cookbook AwardsPublishing Details
