Ask anyone about their experience of eating Southeast Asian food for the first time and they probably would agree it felt like being enveloped in a warm embrace. Whether it’s Thai laksa or Vietnamese pho, Indian curry or Burmese mohinga — the thread that binds these dishes together is often nostalgia. This cookbook, celebrated for turning a spotlight on Burmese cuisine, relies on those memories from grandma’s kitchen, and translates them into deliciously evocative recipes. The Chung sisters, better known as the Rangoon sisters, are doctors and home cooks who started out hosting supper clubs in London to introduce their family recipes to locals. Now as champions of their ancestral cuisine, "The Rangoon Sisters" is an insight into their life, heritage, and legacy.
