About the Book

Take a culinary voyage through the vibrant flavours of Malaysia with MasterChef UK contestant, Zaleha Kadir Olpin, as she shares her favourite family recipes in this  cookbook. Malaysian-born Zaleha pays tribute to dishes she grew up with, including laksam, a rolled rice noodle dish unique to the East Coast of Malaysia; nasi lemak, one of Malaysia’s most iconic dishes; as well as chicken rendang, the controversial dish she prepared on the show.

Mostly handed down from her mother and grandmother, Zaleha’s recipes maintain traditional methods of cooking, but are suitable for use in the modern kitchen so you can experience Malaysian cuisine in all its authenticity. She also shares lessons she learnt growing up in a culinary family, with insights into the importance of food in Malaysian culture. Written from the heart, this book will appeal to anyone looking to expand their flavour repertoire or just wanting to dip their toes into the delightful world of Malaysian cooking.

“This book is a warm plate of Malaysian goodness,
perfect for serving from all kitchens, at home and abroad.”
—Chef Dato’ Fazley Yaakob
Executive Chef, SukaSucre Bistro, Kuala Lumpur

“Zaleha Olpin is someone who wouldn’t allow a word to crush her.
She made it work for her – thus the title of this beautiful book
that showcases authentic Malaysian food at its finest.”
—Zaharah Othman
New Straits Times, Malaysia
