Southeast Asia and Malaysia was the destination world-traveling artist and cook Justin P. Moore chose for a 5 week adventure across the Malaysian peninsula, to the city-state of Singapore, and around the island of Borneo. As always, he’s interested in the country and people he’s visiting, and anxious to dive deep into the mixing-pot of diverse culinary influences of the region: Malaysian, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian… and a lot more.
As with the previous three volumes in his series of internationally successful The Lotus and the Artichoke cookbooks, these recipes are the mouth-watering results of direct contact, daily dialogue, and intense cooking sessions with the locals – at their homes, in the restaurants, and at food carts and street food stalls across the land. On this journey his stays included a jungle treehouse in Borneo, backpacker guesthouses in the big cities, and downtown hotels and and simple apartments in China Town and India Town.
The Lotus and the Artichoke MALAYSIA features over 70 totally vegan recipes inspired by Justin’s travels and experiences on the road and in kitchens all over the world. This fourth book in the series again masterfully showcases his remarkable blend of personal artwork, travel stories, original culinary creations and down-to-earth food photography.
