5.0 out of 5 stars Most excellent. Buy shallots., October 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Burma: Rivers of Flavor (Hardcover)
I've cooked one dish from here. It was a beef and potato dish, which the author said she made with eggplant instead (and I had an abundance of eggplant). I used pork, since one of my guests has heart palpitations from beef. Oh, and it turns out I was out of shallots, so I had to use onions instead. It was amazing. I never thought eggplant could actually taste good.

This book could be called Shallots instead of Burma. You need a lot of shallots. The recipes are all well suited to cooking in a Western kitchen, but still feel like what I'd imagine food is really like in Burma. I really don't know if they really are like Burmese food, but I trust the author. You will need to probably visit a specialty store (or the internet) because the main ingredients are not 100% megamart safe, but the bulk of the items are available easily.

And you will need lots of shallots.

Also, her other books are all awesome as well. I heartily recommend all of them in addition to this book.

Very good point on the Shallots, although I haven't had much trouble substituting in many recipes

Shallots and tumeric. Don't forget the tumeric. :)
