Food as a daily meal or as a religious offering is fundamental to the cultures of South-East Asia. This new volume in the popular Images of Asia series explores the multifaceted aspects of food in South-East Asia. Beginning with a historical and sociological survey of South-East Asian food and eating habits, it goes on to discuss the ingredients and spices used in the region, the character of the food markets, the changing styles of the kitchens, and the different styles of cooking and eating that have evolved over the years. A final chapter examines common South-East Asian sayings based on the food and culinary habits of the region.
