An Everlasting Legacy
I remembered very well what wonderful food we had when we were little. However, as we grew older, the flavourful food and recipes slowly vanished. With the intentions of honouring our grandmother's legacy, I bring you
Mortar & Pestle ; Aromas from a Peranakan Kitchen
You will find cherished Nyonya Peranakan recipes handed down for generations by our grandmothers in this book. On top of that, I have even documented childhood short stories on the games we used to play, poems we used to recite and songs we used sing.
I hope this book will find its way to a special place on your culinary shelves. Even more, I hope Mortar & Pestle will be passed down to your loved ones and generations to come. Lastly, I hope the recipes and stories will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.
Here is a sneak peek into our book. Among some of our delicious mouthwatering dishes you can expect to find are are Tau Eu Sotong (Squid Stir-fried in Soya Sauce), Asam Prawns, Sweet and Sour Crab, Cincalok Chicken (Fermented Shrimp Chicken), Ayam PongTay (Nyonya Stewed Chicken), Asam Fish Curry and Chicken Curry. Or if you like healthy comforting soups, Por Hor Th’ng (Mint Leaf Soup), Kiam Chye Ark Th’ng (Salted Vegetable and Duck Soup) and Spinach Soup. If you reminisce traditional homemade A-la Carte dishes try our enticing Asam Laksa, Nyonya Fried Rice and Bee Hoon Siam. For those with sweet tooth don’t miss our delectable Bubur Cha Cha (Yam and Sweet Potatoes in Coconut Milk), Sweet Bean Curd, Gingko and Barley, Gandum (Sweet Wheat Pearls) and Bee Koh (Sweet Glutinous Rice).
