New large softcover cookbook published 2014, 240 pages. Delicious colour photos throughout.

An irresistible celebration of the culinary traditions, techniques and ingredients beloved by East and West.

Inspired by her Chinese-Malay heritage and classic Aussie favourites, Poh's new book is a unique take on the universally yummy things we all love - noodles, dumplings, bagels, salads, puddings, pasta and cakes. The new cookbook from popular TV cook Poh Ling Yeow. Come on a new journey with Poh with her long awaited cookbook Same Same But Different, the follow-up to her bestselling 'Poh's Kitchen - My Cooking Adventures', which stayed in the top 10 Australian bestsellers list for six weeks. The 100 brand new recipes in the book are organised in pairs that share a common process, ingredient or texture - so a 'blanket in a bowl' could be Basic Chicken Soup or a Chinese chicken congee, and a 'yummy curry' could be Prawn and Pineapple Curry or a Beef Rendang. Full of mouth-watering recipes and as stylish as its author, Same Same But Different will inspire you to go in new culinary directions with familiar ingredients.

Shot entirely on location in Poh's own kitchen, it's personal and generous, warm and wicked, an exciting mix of signature dishes and family classics - it's Same Same But Different:

  • Bite-sized spice - Kunyit (turmeric) fried chicken / Curry puffs
  • Pork & Purses - Chinese pork & cabbage dumplings / Crystal skin yam bean purses
  • Tiers of happiness - Hazelnut & fresh fruit torte / Kuih Lapis (Indonesian layer cake)
  • Cheesy charmers - Cheese souffle / Cheddar crusted apple pie
  • Salty sweet - Poached chicken & pineapple salad / Savoury fruit salad
  • Something wobbly - Creme caramel / Steamed egg tofu with century egg salad
  • Sour power - Kimchi / Basic Chinese pickles
  • Boil, bake, steam - Bagels / Chinese steamed flower buns (Mantou)
  • and many more recipe pairs that share a process, ingredient or texture

Same Same But Different is an Australian publication. All measurements are in metric and metric cup & spoon.
