Secret Destinations: Asian Spa Cuisine by Susie Donald, Hardie Grant Books, RRP $85 Now here's a coffee table book that's good enough to eat! In Secret Destinations, Asian Spa Cuisine, author Susie Donald has presented a stunning tour through 19 of Asia's most beautiful health spas and resorts. Her partner in this envious adventure, photographer Edmond Ho, has captured the beauty and serenity of the locations as well as the mouth-watering food on the menus. This is a large book, produced for a coffee table, but the recipes within are definitely designed for a domestic kitchen. The philosophy of the recipes included is that they are simple, yet nourishing - with the emphasis on health, taste and ease of preparation. Each of the resorts' chefs have contributed their recipes, which have been edited to make them more accessible for those of us stuck living back here. Secret Destinations is a sumptuous book that celebrates the delights of spa culture. The recipes showcase the amazing food to feed the body, and the photographs and words of wisdom are designed to nourish and inspire the mind. If you can't catch the next plane to one of these amazing destinations, then the next best remedy is to delve into the delicious recipes within these pages and escape on a plate.
