How to get to know Myanmar, a country that until recently has been off limits for all but the briefest of visits. Burma: Food, Family & Conflict combines original historical research, family stories, and distinctive regional recipes to give a flavour of life and struggles from colonial Burma to contemporary Myanmar.
‘A tiffin-time-capsule of the end of empire in Burma; an epic account told with relish (in this case, lime pickle and mango chutney) through the memories of a much-loved matriarch… a daringly original literary and epicurean triumph.’
