Mary Gomes: Food For Everyday Cooking
By Mary Gomes
Eurasian cooking reflects the influence of a multitude of cultures, including the Portuguese, Dutch, British, Chinese, Malay, Indian and even the Peranakans. After years of cooking for family, church, corporate events and even a president or two, Mary Gomes has come up with a simple yet effective method of cooking that anyone, who prefers to spend time with family or friends rather than being hidden in the kitchen, would appreciate. In Mary Gomes: Food for Everyday Cooking, Mary shares 50 of her family’s favourite Eurasian dishes for everyday cooking. From comforting soups and stews like Tahu Brangku Fugar and Chicken Meatball Stew to sumptuous mains such as Chicken Sambal Buah Keras and Sotong Masak Lemak to mouthwatering desserts like Kueh Bingka Ubi Kayu and Pengat Meladu, this book showcases the distinct flavours of Eurasian food that can be whipped up in a jiffy for hungry family members after a long and hard day at work.
With interesting and informative anecdotes and an illustrated glossary of ingredients, Mary Gomes: Food for Everyday Cooking is a must-have for lovers of Eurasian cuisine.
