In its purest form chilli oil is made by pouring hot oil over crushed dried chillies and leaving them to infuse. Food was a huge part of this journey - should they cling to the traditional comfort of their parents' varied culinary heritage, attempt to assimilate wholly by learning to love shepherd's pie, or forge a new path where flavour and the freedom to choose trumped authenticity? I borrowed this one from the public library and I loved the feel of its matte pages and its vibe which was totally hip and hand drawn, except for the big, clear photos that every cookbook should have. Australians Rosheen Kaul and Joanna Hu confront their blended-Chinese heritage by exploring classics of home cooking like wontons, fried rice and stir-fries--while also going where nobody's grandma has gone before, with 'very inauthentic Shrimp Toast' and 'Microwave Cheong fun' rice noodle rolls. The _ga cookie, installed by Google Analytics, calculates visitor, session and campaign data and also keeps track of site usage for the site's analytics report.

Against my better judgement I tried it anyway in case this level of salt unlocked amazing wontons flavours I didn't know about.

Chef Kaul and illustrator Hu offer up a colorful and proudly inauthentic survey of Asian recipes … The recipes are enlivened by whimsical depictions of delicacies … The dishes are rich in heritage and individuality … Far-away flavors feel close to home in this delectable spread.
