- 2.9 kg
Two of Christopher Tan’s most essential baking cookbooks. Christopher is an award-winning writer, cooking instructor and photographer, and he has been commentator on and chronicler of food, culture and heritage for publications such as Singapore's Sunday Times and Straits Times, The Peak, and America’s Saveur magazine. He believes that what we eat is but the littlest part of any food encounter: it is in the how, why, when, where and with whom we eat that much of its flavour lies.
The Way of Kueh is the definitive book on Singapore’s kueh, sharing everything you need to know about local kueh culture.
Much more than just a collection of recipes, The Way of Kueh delves into the topic with a lyrical, insightful and practical approach. It traverses kueh families and genres, key kueh-making techniques, the seasonality and social significance of kueh, and the importance of both tradition and innovation. Local kueh artisans from all walks of life share their stories and perspectives in interviews, while short essays muse on the histories, regional and colonial influences, science and symbolism behind this most diverse of food genres.
With over 60 recipes on breads, cakes, cookies and dishes inspired by his life, travels and food obsessions, Nerdbaker is Christopher Tan’s way of busting the world of home baking wide open.
This cookbook contains unique recipes, stories and detailed knead-to-know advice from the deepest corners of a true oven nerd’s mind. Geek out with him over ‘intelligent’ black rice cake, homemade Pocky, the tangled histories of puff pastry and a breathtaking luncheon meat extravaganza. Plus, learn how to make Banhmiclairs, smoked cloud cookies, bundt cake with built-in frosting and much more.
