Review:

"Fresh mints, galangal, the seductive waft of wild ginger flowers, the addictive power of belachan and dried shrimp, the mystery of curry leaves, the sweetness of cinnamon, fenugreek, and cloves and more. In Heavenly Fragrance, Carol generously shares with us her time-honored experience and knowledge of venerable herbs and spices, and how to use these in the modern kitchen." —Cheong Liew

"At last there is someone who not only understands the importance of fragrance to flavor but is a Southeast Asian cook without equal. Share her enthusiasm and skills in this book." —Max Lake

"Drawing on her vast knowledge of Asian cookery, Carol Selva Rajah shows us how to use fresh herbs and spices to add marvelous flavors to even the simplest dishes." —Anya Von Bremzen

"Heavenly Fragrance had me lost in a world scented with buttery popcorn pandanus leaves, salty fish sauce, and fiery chiles..." —ThisWayToParadise.com blog

"The photos are beautiful, the recipes authentic [...] do buy the book." —Multiculturiosity blog

"Some recipes are fusioned, like Salmon fish cakes with curry leaf pesto and Lemongrass Coconut Creme Caramel. Some are familiar but comes with a make over, like Nasi Ulam and Spring Rolls. The recipe collection features adaptations from South East Asian, Sri Lankan, Chinese, and Western recipes. A good mix!" —Table for 2...or More blog
