Southeast Asian food is fresh, easy and full of unforgettable flavours: Chicken and Rice will show you just how simple it is to make at home.Shu Han Lee moved to London from Singapore as a student.

These recipes, from her mother's sesame oil chicken to ox cheek and venison rendang, are ones you will want to make time and time again.There are perfect midweek suppers rustled up in less time than it takes to order a takeaway, and healthier and better tasting at that: fennel and minced pork stir fry, fried hor fun noodles with kale and beansprouts or tom yum soup with mussels. For weekends, there are more adventurous projects: learn how to make your own steamed buns, egg noodles, or BBQ sambal lemon sole - a whole fish barbequed on banana leaves.Although these are Southeast Asian recipes, Shu's seasonal approach to the very best of UK produce is reflected throughout this book: from Brussels sprouts with smashed garlic and oyster sauce to no-churn rhubarb and condensed milk ice cream. There are also recipes that Shu has picked up on her travels throughout Southeast Asia, such as Vietnamese caramel pork ribs, Thai baked glass noodles with prawns and black pepperand Burmese chickpea tofu with fish sauce, lime and honey dressing.Sushi at Home: The Beginner's Guide to Perfect, Simple Sushi
