About Recipe

Burma or Myanmar, mysterious and much maligned, the latter, sadly, deservedly so for the various atrocities carried out by its military leaders. Despite coming out of the cold and having an elected president in the form of President Thein Sein, the troubles don’t look like they’ll be easing anytime soon. BUT this is a food blog and food is what we shall talk about! First though, let me just say that Burma is almost like a lost paradise despite the violence and bloodshed. I was hooked and the country forever immortalised when as a child, I came across this quote “This is Burma and it is unlike any land you know about.” by Rudyard Kipling, Letters from the East (1898)
