Mary Gomes


Eurasian cooking reflects the influence of a multitude of cultures, including the Portuguese, Dutch, British, Chinese, Malay, Indian and even the Peranakans. After years of cooking for family, church, corporate events and even a president or two, Mary Gomes has come up with a simple yet effective method of cooking that anyone, who prefers to spend time with family or friends rather than being hidden in the kitchen, would appreciate. In Mary Gomes: Food for Everyday Cooking, Mary shares 50 of her family’s favourite Eurasian dishes for everyday cooking. From comforting soups and stews like Tahu Brangku Fugar and Chicken Meatball Stew to sumptuous mains such as Chicken Sambal Buah Keras and Sotong Masak Lemak to mouthwatering desserts like Kueh Bingka Ubi Kayu and Pengat Meladu, this book showcases the distinct flavours of Eurasian food that can be whipped up in a jiffy for hungry family members after a long and hard day at work. With interesting and informative anecdotes and an illustrated glossary of ingredients, Mary Gomes: Food for Everyday Cooking is a must-have for lovers of Eurasian cuisine.

Mary Gomes
Mary Gomes is a cook extraordinaire. As a child, she learnt to cook at her mother’s knee, preparing teatime treats, curries, stews and roasts. When she married and started her own family, she continued to prepare these dishes to help keep her Eurasian heritage alive for her children. Today, Mary runs May’s Kafe housed in a church in the heart of Singapore’s busy commercial district, where she dishes out wholesome home-cooked meals for all who step through the doors.
