Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Caucasian-American Sami Scripter and Hmong-American Sheng Yang have intertwined their expertise to present the superb Hmong cuisine within its rich Southeast Asian cultural context. Cooking from the Heart contains more than 100 authentic Hmong recipes: Fresh Chicken with Hmong Herbs; Stir-Fried Baby Bok Choy with Pork; Stuffed Bitter Melon Soup; Chicken and Bean Sprout Salad; and Chicken Soup for New Mothers. The cookbook's cultural notes are far more than fillers: In stories, anecdotes, and poems, they convey the history and traditions of these proud mountain people.
