Available: In Stock
$34.00 $39.99

‘To Asia, With Love is my homecoming, a joyous return to the humble, yet deeply nurturing flavours and meals of my childhood as a Chinese girl born in Australia. It is also a celebration of the exciting and delicious possibilities of modern Asian cooking.’

Recipes range from the traditional – salt and pepper eggplant, red curry laksa, congee, a perfectly simple egg, pea and ginger fried rice – to Hetty's uniquely modern interpretations, such as buttery miso vegemite noodles, stir-fried salt and vinegar potatoes, cacio e pepe udon noodles and grilled wombok caesar salad with wonton crackers. All share an emphasis on seasonal vegetables and creating irresistible Asian(ish) flavours using pantry staples.

Whether it's a banh mi turned into a salad, a soy-sauce-powered chocolate brownie or a rainbow guide to eating dumplings by the season, this is Asian home cooking unlike anything you've experienced before.

Recipes featured in photos above:

  • Life-changing udon with soft-boiled egg, hot soy and black pepper
  • Mushroom and kimchi ‘sausage rolls’
  • Steamed tofu and shiitake mushrooms with ginger, spring onion and soy
  • Potato and leek momos
