To Asia, With Love - Hetty McKinnon
‘To Asia, With Love' is a joyous return to the humble, yet deeply nurturing flavours and meals of McKinnon's childhood as a Chinese girl born in Australia. It is also a celebration of the exciting and delicious possibilities of modern Asian cooking.’
Recipes range from the traditional – salt and pepper eggplant, red curry laksa, congee, a perfectly simple egg, pea and ginger fried rice – to Hetty’s uniquely modern interpretations, such as buttery miso vegemite noodles, stir-fried salt and vinegar potatoes, cacio e pepe udon noodles and grilled wombok caesar salad with wonton crackers. All share an emphasis on seasonal vegetables and creating irresistible Asian(ish) flavours using pantry staples.
