We’ve won the World’s Best Asian cookbook of the year award!
Come to Bric-a-Brac and say hello!
Competing against entries from some 205 countries and thousands of titles, The Burma Cookbook vied against four finalists from all books published in Asia. Over a decade in the making, and over 20 years of Burmese travels, authors Robert Carmack and Morrison Polkinghorne travelled extensively to Myanmar, or Burma, to compile its 175 recipes. Of special significance is the book’s historical research of the country’s colonial period, and the author’s exclusive access to The Strand hotel’s private collection. (In Myanmar, the book is titled “The Strand Cookbook.”) Lavishly illustrated and photographed, it is equally a travelogue and cookbook suitable for coffee table and kitchen alike.
