From its unusual title to its unique arrangement of recipes, Green Pickles Peaches
is an adventure through the heart of Malay food culture.
Author and chef Chui Lee Luk’s approach to ingredients and flavour harks back to her earliest memories, which she lovingly recounts throughout this momentous book. She recalls her childhood in Sabah, Malaysia, and how the five senses are central to the food she cooks today. Green Pickles Peaches
isn’t just a recipe book – it’s an intriguing insight in to food writing and a chef’s creative process.
Most recipes within Chui’s cookbook are granted a four-page spread: one for the story or idea behind the dish, one for a stunning photograph, and two more for ingredients and the cooking process. This gives an individual and unique feel to each and every dish, as if they’re all miniature works of art with a story to tell.
You’ll find wonderful and also mysterious Malaysian-inspired dishes throughout, such as “Shards, things hidden, shattered and revealed” and “A surprising fruit flavour appears in the rabbit pie.” It’s a food journey like few others.
