About the Book

The Modern Nonya Table is a compendium of Sylvia Tan’s beloved Peranakan recipes for the modern kitchen. Herself a modern Nonya, Sylvia draws from family heritage recipes and updates them, dispensing with tedious techniques but never compromising on the flavours. She helps readers navigate their way through the Peranakan kitchen, explaining the food culture of the Peranakans (or Straits Chinese) and its influences, as well as the fundamental elements of spice pastes, which form the foundation of Peranakan cooking. With Sylvia’s guide, mouthwatering favourites like ayam buah keluak, babi pongteh and laksa lemak, to lesser-known dishes such as loh kai yik, charbeck and hati babi bungkus, can be easily prepared by the modern home cook.
