My latest cookbook purchase

I really like reading food blogs. There are a few which I consume regularly. But everything started with a single blog.

One day, I was cooking mi goreng – Indonesian style fried noodles. I prepared my mi goreng the way I had seen a good friend of mine making it. She is Indonesian, so she is an authority in this manner. One of the principles of my cuisine, however, is to constantly improve all recipes. So I decided to do a quick Google search in order to learn how other people make their mi goreng. I ended up in a two or three hours journey all through the internet. I simply got stuck.

Somehow, I came to a website which praised another authority on fried noodles: Pim. The funny thing is that I don’t even remember this particular website. But it changed a lot. It took me to Pim’s description of phad thai – Thai style fried noodles. It was not exactly what I had been looking for. But I loved it. I highly recommend reading this piece. It is not a conventional recipe, but more of a passionate love letter to phad thai. It made me want to read more of “Chez Pim”, and it made me bookmark it.

Few weeks ago, Pim released her first book. I guess I have read every single word of it. This book is mouthwatering. Not a conventional cook book, but more of a passionate love letter to food. Truly enjoyable.
