We don’t really collect or purposely collect cookbooks. Just happened that we have a collection of them by getting them as free gifts and old subscription of monthly cookbooks that my mom used to subscribe more than 20 years ago but we seldom try out the recipes ;p. Usually just see, see, look, look, and drool over it.
This is the latest collection to our collection, Oo… Ha! Favourites of Sarawak by Vincs Huang (bilingual edition).
You can find many Sarawak signature food in there from some communities in Sarawak but it’s a bit disappointing that there’s no Sarawak Laksa or Kueh Chap or Cha Kueh recipe in there. The recipes featured in there are all from popular eateries in Kuching. Just to name a few, Lok Thian, Chia Heng, and It-Hng.
Besides recipes, there are also articles in there introducing food and places of interest of Sarawak.
My mum does cook most of the recipes in there and those that she doesn’t know how or require a lot of preparations, we would just buy. Makes life easier hahaha…
Nevertheless, it’s one interesting cookbook for our collection as we don’t have any that is dedicated to Sarawak.
Thanks Borneoboy for organizing the contest. 🙂
