Order the Taste Of The Place Cookbook!

Hello friends! Thank you for your interest in the Taste Of The Place cookbook. As one of the contributing authors, I am super excited to share with you my stories and favourite recipes in the China chapter. I am most proud of the precious few photos of my then-young father learning to cook. Read more on my blog post HERE.

I hope you enjoy reading the book and trying something new…

Here’s to taking the culinary adventure into your kitchen!

Susan Ng

This delicious collection of tasty regional recipes, intriguing cultural tidbits, and drool-worthy photos will tempt you to embark on a culinary journey!

Each chapter is filled with beautiful and sensual memories, like the smell of roasting coffee and the perfume of baking bread on a cool Italian morning; cultural highlights, such as the reason Romanians from Bucovina add potatoes to their polenta; insights into deeply rooted traditions, like the origins of the famous Argentine asado; and, of course, scrumptious recipes, many of which, like the South African bobotie, have been handed down for generations.

So grab your skillet! We are heading to the kitchen to explore the world!

What people are saying

“As a spice merchant I am always searching for cookbooks that combine great recipes with cultural flavors and history.  Taste of the Place is one of the best books I have found to connect cultures, people, and flavors through deliciously approachable recipes and meaningful family cooking stories.”
