The Singapore Heritage Cookbooks This series, which we import from Singapore, consists of individual books (seven to date, hopefully more to come) highlighting the traditional home cooking of each of the various ethnic groups in the busy, prosperous city state.
Every book includes an affectionate tribute to one person whose cooking represents the cuisine featured there, and charming, highly personal commentary on many of the dishes reflects the interchange among Singapore’s different cultures. Those looking for definitive, systematic studies of ethnic traditions will be disappointed, but these handsomely designed slender books offer a fascinating window into everyday fare.
Teochew in Singapore are descendants of immigrants from southeast China, many of whom arrived there in the middle of the nineteenth century. Besides the usual Teochew fare of steamed fish and pork wrapped in bean curd skin, this book features many little-known traditional Teochew dishes—some even exclusive to the author’s family.
