Susan has a passion for food and an interest in nutrition. She loves to promote Burma and its country, culture and cuisine through her published cookbook - Flavors of Burma - Cuisine and Culture from the Land of Golden Pagodas.

Please also see Susan's 'Healthy Chinese Soups and Drinks' cookbook which took about 10 years to complete and get published. This book includes the traditional and modern Chinese soups and drinks that are beneficial to our bodies - Beyond Chicken and Corn Soup!

After reading to her son for the past 6 years since he was 2 weeks old, Susan has now developed an interest in writing children's picture books.

It is also Susan's pleasure to introduce the new novel 'Revenge from Beyond' by Dennis Wong, available on the Amazon website. Please refer to it for more detailed product information.

Format: Hardcover
Great book. Great recipes. My wife and I cooked the double fish curry last night. Its great. The recipe was easy to follow and quick to cook. We already had everything needed - although we used red fish fillets instead of the mackerel or king fish suggested. It tasted really good - smooth and tasty but without that "after curry burp" you get with some of the traditional Indian curries. It looked really good when cooked too - its nice to cook something without knowing in advance how it should look like after the experts have cooked it!
We will definitly give the other recipes a go too.
The information on Burmese (Myanmar?) life is interesting too - obviously written with some compassion.

I bought this book because my boyfriend is from Burma. I want to learn to make more dishes for him that will appeal to his taste buds. When he saw the book, he wouldn't put it down and kept saying that the recipes were very authentic. He remembers eating some of these dishes/recipes mentioned in the book. Thank you Susan Chan for writing this book.

Although I'm not from Burma, her material was very easy to digest and entertaining to read. The writer gives an excellent overview of the history and culture without the hype and fluff. She also gives her own life experience and journey while in Burma. Although I never had Burmese food or been to Burma, reading her book gives me a warmth feel that I "know" about Burma.

My boyfriend is Burmese and he said that this book is pretty authentic. The only problem I had was that a few of the dishes I was interested in making were for 16 people. I never really cook for that many people and haven't found the time yet to adjust the ingredients.
