MiMi Aye

There is so much to love in MiMi Aye's wonderful Mandalay- Nigella Lawson

A flavour explosion

Influenced by its neighbours and the countries closest to it, Burmese food draws techniques and ingredients from Thailand, India and China but uses flavours of its own to make something subtle, delicious and unique.

The food of Burma is little known, but MiMi seeks to change that within these pages, revealing its secrets and providing context to each recipe with stories from her time in Burma and her family's heritage.

Beginning with a look at the ingredients that make Burmese food unique - as well as suitable alternatives - MiMi goes on to discuss the special techniques and equipment needed before delving into chapters such as fritters, rice and noodles, salads, meat and fish and sweet snacks. Within these pages you'll find 100 incredible recipes, enabling you to create a taste of Burma in your own kitchen.

MiMi Aye is the British Burmese writer of www.meemalee.com, founder of supper club and community Burmese Food and Beyond, and author of NOODLE! 100 Great Recipes (Absolute Press).

MiMi has appeared on BBC Radio 4's award-winning Woman's Hour and Food Programme, as well as the BBC TWO show A Question of Taste, and her recipes have also appeared in METRO, The Evening Standard, Woman & Home and Redmagazines.

She is featured as a chef on the Good Food Channel online, and her recipes have been featured on Channel 4 Food online to accompany Gordon Ramsay's TV show Gordon's Great Escapes.
