Book Description
Burma is a land of golden pagodas, mighty rivers, and generous deltas. While the beauty of the Burmese countryside has long been famous, its cuisine has been something of a secret until now. This unique volume of over 75 recipes, collected from all over Myanmar, reveals the treasures of Burmese cooking. Among the exciting dishes are the national favorite, Rice Noodles in Fish Soup, tangy Kaffir Lime Salad, and hearty Pork Balls cooked in Sweet Soybean Sauce.
