Prospect Books first published this manuscript (from notebooks compiled by the late Master of Ceremonies and Chef at the Royal Palace at Luang Prabang) in 1981. The first edition was a parallel text: Lao on the left, English translation on the right-hand page. Later editions (after 1994) were in English only. The notebooks are a precious resource for those wishing to cook Lao food: the 124 recipes were compiled to give a balanced view of the cuisine (albeit from quite a high-ranking perspective). In the thirty years since its first appearance, materials and ingredients have become easier to source, and the cooking techniques and styles more familiar to us. The dishes, therefore, are very cookable. There is a long prefatory section, written by the late Alan Davidson and his daughter Jennifer, which explains much about Lao cookery, ingredients and equipment.The whole book is plentifully illustrated with drawings done from life by Soun Vannithone and other Lao artists. The introduction is 50 pages long and covers the life of Phia Sing; Lao eating habits and attitudes to food; Lao culinary terms and culinary equipment; and Lao ingredients. The recipes occupy 250 pages and there is a supplement of 10 pages with recipes for Lao desserts (which were not covered by Phia Sing's notebooks).

"The little known cultures and cuisine of northern Laos are the source of the recipes, contributed by Laos' local ethnic groups and Luang Namtha Province's oldest and most renown ecolodge. Few outsiders have the opportunity to explore the foods of northern Laos in depth. Much of it is only available in people's homes and villages or from the cooking pots of local stalls and markets. Restaurants generally present 'pan Asian' dishes to meet tourist's expectations and the locals' need for different tastes than a home cooked meal. Cookbooks on Lao food are scarce and until now, did not cover Lao cuisine north of Luang Prabang. But now, Food from Northern Laos describes the dishes, ingredients and cooking arts of this scarcely known cuisine within its cultural context. With this book, we hope Lao cooking will gain the recognition it deserves. Eighty-eight dishes from Lao, Kmhmu', Tai Dam, Tai Yuan, Tai Lue Akha are presented in clear, simple recipes. Sprengers' stunning photography of the province's people and, food preparation in village homes and at The Boat Landing Guest House and Restaurant ties the dishes to their indigenous setting. unique cookbook includes: A photo-illustrated glossary of ingredients and substitutions ; Descriptions of Lao preparation and cooking techniques ; An explanation of traditional cooking equipment ; A bibliography, including web links." --Publisher.

The Year Of Eating Dangerously

Fugu. Dog. Cobra. Bees. Spleen. A 600,000 SCU chili pepper. All considered foods by millions of people around the world. And all objects of great fascination to Tom Parker Bowles, a food journalist who grew up eating his mother's considerably safer roast chicken, shepherd's pie and mushy peas. Intrigued by the food phobias of two friends, Parker Bowles became inspired to examine the cultural divides that make some foods verboten or "dangerous" in the culture he grew up with while being seen as lip-smacking delicacies in others. So began a year-long odyssey through Asia, Europe and America in search of the world's most thrilling, terrifying and odd foods. Parker Bowles is always witty and sometimes downright hilarious in recounting his quest for envelope-pushing meals, ranging from the potentially lethal to the outright disgusting to the merely gluttonous—and he proves in this book that an open mouth and an open mind are the only passports a man needs to truly discover the world.

Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the globe, showing once and for all that one man's road kill is another man's delicacy! "I've tried to make this book a guide to how the other half dines and why. Over a period of twenty-five years I've augmented my meat-and-potatoes upbringing in the United States to try a wide variety of regional specialties, from steamed water beetles, fried grasshoppers and ants, to sparrow, bison and crocodile. I've eaten deep-fried bull's testicles in Mexico, live shrimp sushi in Hawaii, mice cooked over an open wood fire in Thailand, pig stomach soup in Singapore, minced water buffalo and yak butter tea in Nepal, stir-fried dog tongue, and "five penis wine" in China." —From the introduction by Jerry Hopkins Dive headfirst into food culture from around the world. Join author Jerry Hopkins on a culinary and cultural tour as he explores foods that may seem bizarre, and often off-putting, to us. As he says, "What is considered repulsive to someone in one part of the world, in another part of the world is simply considered lunch."
