Detail on specialty products—like goraka, pandanus leaves, tamarind, and young jackfruit;

"This vegetable and seafood-heavy book has recipes for all the classics: lamprais, the little parcels of perfumy banana leaves stuffed with rice and curries, the cashew curry I would plead for as a kid, and kiribath. Readers are led through an introduction to the pillars of the cuisine (coconut milk and meat, rice, and key spices ...) before learning how to fold banana leaves and make curry powders. It’s a technique-heavy book full of reliable instructions and gorgeous nostalgic photographs."
