Periplus Editions Heavenly Fragrance introduces the art of using Asia's most aromatic cooking ingredients to prepare food with wonderful fragrances to excite both the palate and sense of smell. Since over three quarters of what we taste in fact comes from smell, the aromas produced by our food are vitally important to the enjoyment that comes from eating. Inspired by fond memories of fragrant cooking since her childhood days, author Carol Selva Rajah has included in this book a collection of new and traditional Southeast Asian dishes for anyone wishing to serve the best flavors of the East at home. With chapters on aromatic herbs and flowers, aromatic fruits and nuts, and aromatic spices, pastes and seasonings, these recipes will incite the senses and inspire the soul.
