Guardian columnist Meera Sodha’s stunning new collection also features plenty of brand-new recipes inspired by a wide range of Asian cuisines.
There are warming noodles, curries, rice dishes, tofu, salads, sides and sweets, all surprisingly easy to make and bursting with exciting flavours.
Taking you from India to Indonesia, Singapore to Japan, by way of China, Thailand, and Vietnam, East will show you how to whip up a sprout nasi goreng and a swede laksa; how to make Kimchi pancakes, delicious dairy free black dal, and chilli tofu.
There are sweet potato momos for snacks and unexpected desserts like stem ginger chocolate truffles and matcha roll cake.
Lots of these recipes have become firm favourites in the Edgy Books home.
