The book is much more than a collection of recipes; it contains entertaining anecdotes, personal insights and informative guides from his upbringing and passion for Malaysian food. Stunningly illustrated with on-location photographs, its colourful 212 pages also contain useful sections on Malaysian culture, history, people, places & ingredients.

I enjoyed the opening sections looking at culture and ingredients in a bit of depth, before getting on to the recipes. - Veronica Leek, cookery book buyer for Foyles I was most attracted to the apparent authenticity of the Ning cookbook. I really have enjoyed reading through the book, the photos and anecdotes are fantastic in conveying the atmosphere. - Rima Haque, Amazon customer
