The Red Spice Road cookbook is a sumptuous collection of recipes from the kitchen of the popular Melbourne restaurant. Combining centuries-old recipes with modern ingredients and know-how, Chef John McLeay shares his love of all things Asian. Mouth-watering recipes include: crab-filled betel leaves, prawn and sticky pork salad, prawn jungle curry, and crispy five-spice quail.

There are also common favorites such as penang curry, chilli basil chicken, mapo tofu and pork belly as well as easy, delicious desserts. Red Spice Road includes a 'basics' section which instructs the home cook how to make fundamental stocks, pastes and garnishes, and the book finishes with an Asian-influenced cocktail section -- the perfect accompaniment to a delicious banquet.

About the Author

John McLeay fell into his career as a chef after 2 weeks of work experience at The Australian Hotel in Melbourne. His love affair with Asian food developed after a trip to Thailand when one drunken night he ate fried grasshoppers from a street stall and found out he actually quite liked the taste! John is a self-taught chef, experimenting with Asian flavours until he finds the perfect balance between the four elements of taste: hot, sour, sweet and salty. He has been head chef for many years.
