Asian Larder
In Asian Larder, veteran food journalist Sylvia Tan, with several cookbooks to
her name, opens up her larder to readers and demystifies common and notso-
common ingredients found in a typical Asian kitchen.
She describes the characteristics of some 130 Asian food products that are
indispensable when cooking Asian food – from bottled seasonings, sauces and
pastes, to dried food products, spices and herbs. Aside from traditional and
well-known standbys such as soya and oyster sauces, Sylvia has also included
newer pastes such as laksa, mee siam and green curry that have conveniently
come up over the years to cook these very dishes, which our parents had to
make from scratch.
The chapters are organised around groups of ingredients, such as sauces,
soya bean products, dried vegetables and seafood and so on. And most
ingredients will be supported by at least one recipe that illustrate their use in
the kitchen. These recipes, which number around 120, can be either traditional
or updated; some will illustrate new ways of using the ingredient, but they are
all well-loved and valuable standbys in an Asian kitchen.

Ask the Foodie
In 2006, Chris Tan began a conversation with readers and home cooks in
The Sunday Times. It went on for five years. He encountered Singaporeans
obsessed with eating, and with some things in particular – firm prawns,
steamed egg, soups, deep-fried anything…
Forgotten dishes: Some questions were nostalgic. How do I recreate my
grandma’s kueh, where can I find this long-forgotten dish?
Distress calls: Some were distress calls over repeated recipe failures, like
cakes that ended up with the wrong texture, curries that didn’t make the cut.
Tricky recipes: Many focused on just how tricky apparently simple recipes
could be – why braised peanuts stayed hard, for example.
ASK THE FOODIE: KITCHEN KNOWHOW EXPLAINED is for all the faithful followers
of Chris Tan’s column. This compilation includes the most frequently asked
questions, and answers that have been reinforced by further experiments. It
covers a wide range of topics: Asian snacks & desserts; Beverages; Cakes &
puddings; Curries & sambals; Eggs & dairy; Frying; Herbs & spices; Ingredients
& additives; Meat & poultry; Noodles & pasta; Nuts, beans, seeds & grains;
Pastries & bread; Pickles & preserves; Rice; Sauces, stocks & stocks; Seafood;
Vegetables & fruits.
