New Book: Fruits and Vegetables in Southeast Asian Markets
Updated December 15th, 2011:
Winner of the Gourmand Cookbook Award 2011 in the category ‘Culinary Travel Guide Thailand’.
At Dokmai Garden we simply love tropical fruits and vegetables! We share our enthusiasm and knowledge about these plants in a brand new book:
Dokmai Garden’s Guide to Fruits and Vegetables in Southeast Asian Markets (2011). White Lotus. 195 pages, 270 colour photographs. 950 Baht. Text: Eric Danell. Photo: Eric Danell, Anna Kiss and Martina Stöhrová.
The book is intended as a companion on your visits to markets, restaurants and orchards. We have selected 120 species of fruits, vegetables and mushrooms commonly found in Southeast Asia, Southern China and India. Although there are more species for sale in such markets, the book will help you learning over 100 species, not bad huh?
The information is packed in a handy format, which enables you to bring the book to the market with no efforts and to keep it in your luggage without causing space or weight problems. We hope you will find that the scientific accuracy paired with personal and down-to-earth descriptions make this book both entertaining and helpful.
“….it is an important book. For Thailand and internationally.”
Edouard Cointreau, Gourmand International
