Notes about this book

  • Vanessa on December 11, 2011

    My edition is subtitled "Authentic Recipes from the Manhattan of the East" rather than "Authentic Recipes from the New Asia". But I think it must be the same book - also published in 1995.

Prepare delicious and authentic dishes with this easy-to-follow Singapore cookbook.

Influenced by the surrounding islands, China, and other parts of Asia, the cuisine of Singapore has long bewitched prominent tastemakers such as James Oseland, the editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine. Yet, few cookbooks have truly delved into the unique flavors of Indonesian food and cooking. At last, The Food of Singapore presents a glorious cross-section of traditional recipes.

Favorite Singapore recipes include:

Chili Crab
Classic Hokkien Mee
Tea-smoked Fish Fillets
Barbecued Stingray
And many more...

Born in East Java, chef Djoko Wibisono is the perfect guide to introduce Singapore's delicious melange of flavors, and The Food of Singapore is a splendid introduction to a cuisine poised to become the next hot international culinary sensation.
