Go to Asia with love by Hetty McKinnon

Best cookbook ever…for anyone curious about vegans.

Hetty McKinnon’s To Asia, With Love may have single-handedly revived the term “pan-Asian” cuisine in the world. As the Brooklyn-based chef notes at the beginning of this volume, “The recipes are Asian in origin but with a modern spirit; they are traditionally inspired with a global interpretation.” A fabulous personal cookbook—McKinnon even photographed it himself Dishes 12 mm movie – it represents an ode to her Chinese mother’s kitchen and highlights the richness of plant-based Asian dishes that are largely absent from Western restaurant menus. In addition to including healthy, timeless recipes, To Asia also teaches you cooking techniques that I can only describe as game-changing, from making “perfect eggs with jam” to Top noodles or rice for the best alternatives to hard-to-find Asian produce (think green papaya from Granny Smiths).
