Food from Northern Laos: The Boat Landing
By Dorothy Culloty & Kees Sprengers
The little known cultures and cuisine of northern Laos are reflected in the recipes of its local ethnic groups and Luang Namtha Province's premiere ecotourism lodge. Eighty-eight dishes from Lao, Khmu; Tai Dam, Tai Yuan, Tai Lue and Akha are presented in clear, simple recipes. The stunning photography of food preparation in village homes and at the Boat Landing Guest House and Restaurant ties the dishes to their indigenous setting. This unique cookbook includes: an illustrated glossary of ingredients and substitutions; a description of Lao preparation and cooking techniques; an explanation of traditional cooking equipment; a bibliography, including web links; and a comprehensive index in English, Lao transcription and Lao script.
