This book won the Gourmand World Cookbook award for best national culinary history, and has proven to be a classic. Over the years, many Penang heritage dishes have been modified so much that what is served today is just a pale image of the original. With the absence of recorded recipes, modifications of family dishes are inevitable due to the preferences and dislikes of members of the household, and hence the original tastes were not faithfully reproduced from one generation to the next. Similarly, for some restaurants, the original recipes and the tastes were not faithfully passed from a retiring chef to his successor. This book preserves the Penang heritage food from days of yore, covering home-cooked food, restaurant and café food, and hawker food. Meticulously researched, the author has recorded the recipes of his grandmothers, mother, aunts, uncles and cousins. Every time-tested recipe is prefaced with heritage information and, together, they trace Penang heritage food to its Thai, Hokkien, Hainanese, Indian and Malay roots.

While researching the Straits-born community for this cookbook, Lee Geok Boi realised that the culinary delights typically classified as Peranakan were more than just Straits Chinese. It is also Eurasian, Chetti Melakan, Indonesian Chinese, Malay and Indonesian. The trove of salads, curries, soups, stews, kueh-kueh, cakes and biscuits are all found in the different branches of the Straits-born communities who were drawn to this island at the crossroads of world trade. They show the histories of exploration, economic imperatives and colonisation that go back to the days of the Maritime Silk Road. Although there are differences, Straits-born cuisines share many common elements and dishes. Fragrant local roots and leaves, chillies originally from Central America, and spices from the famed Spice Islands and South and West Asia were ground up to prepare iconic dishes that became family favourites through the generations. Discover the rich history and unique culinary flavours of the Straits-born communities with Lee Geok Boi In A Straits-Born Kitchen.

It started out as a simple labour of love for her family, and grew to become a national phenomenon. Mrs Lee Chin Koon (1907-1980), mother of Singapore's founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and a Peranakan by descent, spent a lifetime compiling her own collection of family recipes. She had intended to pass down the secrets of her homecooked Peranakan and local dishes, perfected over the years in her very own kitchen, to her children and grandchildren. In 1974, her heritage recipes were eventually published as Mrs Lee's Cookbook, and were embraced by an entire nation. Her book has since seen numerous reprints, and has become widely accepted as one of the leading authorities on Peranakan and local cuisine in Singapore.Since the original version remains out of print, Mrs Lee's granddaughter Shermay Lee has faithfully reworked these well-loved heirloom recipes into two fully illustrated cookbooks, The New Mrs Lee's Cookbook: Volume 1 and Volume 2, launched in 2003 and 2004 respectively. These revised editions have become well-loved classics in their own right, showcasing the richness and diversity of modern Peranakan cooking, while staying true to its traditional roots. The first volume won the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in 2003. This second cookbook, The New Mrs Lee's Cookbook Vol. 2: Straits Heritage Cuisine, features a mix of Chinese, Malay and Eurasian dishes, and also includes anecdotes explaining their origins. New sections have also been added, including:

This book offers a scholarly perspective on heritage as a discourse, concept and lived experience in Malaysia. It argues that heritage is not a received narrative but a construct in the making. Starting with alternative ways of “museumising” heritage, the book then addresses a broad range of issues involving multicultural and folklore heritage, the small town, nostalgia and the environment, and transnationalism and cosmopolitanism. In so doing it delivers an intervention in received ways of talking about and “doing” heritage in academic as well as state and public discourse in Malaysia, which are largely dominated by perspectives that do not sufficiently engage with the cultural complexities and sociopolitical implications of heritage. The book also critically explores the politics and dynamics of heritage production in Malaysia to contest “Malaysian heritage” as a stable narrative, exploring both its cogency and contingency, and builds on a deep engagement with a non-western society in the service of “provincialising” critical heritage studies, with the broader goal of contributing to Malaysian studies.​

Peranakan is the term given to descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, Malacca, Indonesia and Singapore and married the native Malays. Peranakan (or Nonya) cuisine combines the best of Chinese, Malay and other Asian influences to offer a unique fusion of exotic food. The food is aromatic, spicy, and herbal. Peranakan cuisine also includes a wide range of desserts that are popular in this region. Irene was born to a quintessentially Teochew family, and married into a traditional Peranakan family. Cooking wasn’t always her strong suit, and she had to enrol in cooking classes after her marriage. Then, through trial and error, swapping recipes with friends, gleaning cooking tips from neighbours and friends, and tapping on her husband’s discerning taste buds, Irene’s culinary genie emerged. As the years simmered and broiled, Irene gained confidence and started her own cooking classes. She taught at classes organised by the Social Development Unit, the Welfare Club of Tan Tock Seng Hospital and other church groups. With all these classes, she was able to fine-tune her recipes even further. Writing a cookbook had always been on Irene’s mind, but she passed away before she could complete it. This book is compiled by her daughter Elaine Yeo. Irene’s Peranakan Recipes is part of Epigram Books’ award-winning Heritage Cookbook series, which showcases the best of Singapore’s major cuisines through authentic family recipes.
