5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous 3 May 2004
I first used this book in 1974 the year I was married. My husband-to-be was in the RAF at the time and stuck in Singapore with a 'sick' aircraft. The fact that he and I were due to be married 5 days later hadn't dawned on the Ministry of Defence. However, once the penny did drop that time was getting tight and that there would be an awful lot of thirsty guests, a bride but no bridegroom if they didn't ship him back to Blighty fairly sharpishly, the cogs of MOD moved quickly. He was despatched home on a civvy flight and arrived home with two days to spare. 'South East Asian Food' by Rosemary Brissenden (published then by Penguin Books) was given to me as a wedding present. It was to commemorate the epic saga of the particular aircraft and the wedding that nearly didn't happen because of it, sent by one of the wonderful RAF Movements people who helped the forlorn bridegroom. It has been with me around the world and has never let me down. It is one of my most treasured possensions and I would be devastated to ever lose it. The recipes are easy to understand, all the ingredients used are authentic and the results are always delicious. I cannot recommend this book more highly. This is a classic cookery book, a Standard that I hope will never go out of print. Whoever buys this cannot fail to enjoy using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AAA= Curry recipe book 21 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first bought this book in 1973. It was my guide for years of cooking curries and I would recommend it to anybody who likes a good curry. I was very pleased to replace my worn out copy, and hopefully this one will last as long.

My parents bought this book in the 1970's when we were living in Malaysia. The recipes it contains provide the most authentic reproduction of Malaysian food I have found in any cook book. Simply delicious.

I have the original paperback which I bought years ago - I was really pleased that it was updated in 2007. Definitely a cook book to treasure if you like south east Asian food.

Good to have an eBook version - it's a format that seems well suited to cookery books and recipes.
