Flavors from the past are savored ideas etched in our memories, unforgettable and sentimental. Perhaps some of the traditional treats are still available today, but the authentic tastes-made by traditional skills using natural ingredients are somewhat lost.
Malaysian veteran culinary instructor Madam Choong Su Yin revives 50 traditional recipes that are generously flavored and infused with love. These recipes- which include wormwood leaf glutinous rice kueh, white layer cake, fried needle noodles and onde-onde- bring back fond memories of those good old days. May they ignite a culinary passion in the young generation in pursuit of the flavors of the past.
Madam Choong Su Yin passed away after writing this book and this book was published posthumously. This is her final cookbook, and it is a true testament to the legacy she has left behind.
