"To Asian with Love a good cook book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love the new recipes for Asian cooking which I have not had a chance to try yet but I will shortly

"An excellent study in fusion Australian and Asian culinary melds"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book and anecdotes from a meshed growing up as a child of immigrants to Australia was totally resonated with me. The take on a fusion of cooking styles is excellent, to create a vegan/vegetarian story of life in a diaspora with all the confusion in a child's mind. This is not only a cook book but a fascinating story of a new way of looking at the world.


‘To Asia, With Love is my homecoming, a joyous return to the humble, yet deeply nurturing flavours and meals of my childhood as a Chinese girl born in Australia. It is also a celebration of the exciting and delicious possibilities of modern Asian cooking.’

Recipes range from the traditional – salt and pepper eggplant, red curry laksa, congee, a perfectly simple egg, pea and ginger fried rice – to Hetty's uniquely modern interpretations, such as buttery miso vegemite noodles, stir-fried salt and vinegar potatoes, cacio e pepe udon noodles and grilled wombok caesar salad with wonton crackers. All share an emphasis on seasonal vegetables and creating irresistible Asian(ish) flavours using pantry staples.

Whether it's a banh mi turned into a salad, a soy-sauce-powered chocolate brownie or a rainbow guide to eating dumplings by the season, this is Asian home cooking unlike anything you've experienced before.

Recipes featured in photos above:

  • Life-changing udon with soft-boiled egg, hot soy and black pepper
  • Mushroom and kimchi ‘sausage rolls’
  • Steamed tofu and shiitake mushrooms with ginger, spring onion and soy
  • Potato and leek momos
