"I like the cookbook because I would actually use it. Some cookbooks are meant for reading, some for browsing and flipping through, while some are packed with recipes that I can see myself cooking from. This is the latter. This crab with tamarind and chili immediately caught my attention. The reasons are simple: I am a huge fan of crab and the recipe looks absolutely mouthwatering and delicious." —RasaMalaysia.com blog
"This is a beautiful book with lots of gorgeous photos. I love that the dishes are usually photographed as they'd be served and not in high-fashion, stylized photos. Simple food served on simple dishes as they should be." —Sandra's Kitchen Nook blog
