Feasts of Penang: Muslim Culinary Heritage

Wazir Jahan Karim
Description
This book was written out of love and passion for Straits Muslim heritage foods, inspired by Wazir Jahan Karim's mother, Begum Bismillah Munawar. For fear that many of these recipes would remain only part of the nostalgic memories of newer generations of Straits Muslims, Wazir Jahan embarked on a project to document the culinary heritage of Straits Muslims from the northwest of Peninsular Malaysia, mainly Penang. Malay (Melayu) herbs and foods are strongly featured as the indigenous foods of Penang. Of all the port cities along the Straits of Melaka, Penang is the heart of Straits Muslim hybrid communities - urban Malays (Jawi Peranakan, Jawi Pekan and Orang Tanjung), Arabs (Arab Peranakan), Indian Muslims (mamak), Pakistani Punjabis and Sumatrans, who adopted aspects of Malay culture. 

In this book, Wazir Jahan - a Punjabi Muslim who has assimilated into one of these hybrid communities of Straits Muslims, known commonly as the Jawi Peranakan in Penang, Melaka and Singapore, takes the reader through a dazzling array of anecdotal insights into this unique culinary heritage. Beautifully and richly illustrated, this treasure-trove of straightforward, mouth-watering recipes will lead you on a journey of textures and flavours you can never forget!
