Drawing inspiration from her mother and from the late-night stalls and street markets in her hometown of Ipoh, Ping has put together over 100 delicious recipes that serve as a perfect introduction to the tastes and textures of Malaysian cooking.

About the Author

Shooed out of the kitchen by her mum as a child, Ping Coombes only began cooking when she came to the UK for university, and she applied to go on MasterChef just after being made redundant. Crowned champion in 2014, Ping has returned to MasterChef as a guest judge and has become a global ambassador for Malaysian food - she has even addressed the World Economic Forum at Davos. When she's not whipping up batches of steaming-hot noodles and baos at food festivals around the world, Ping can be found at home in Bath with her husband Andrew and her daughter Alexa.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
