Juan Gallardo is an ordinary tourist from Europe who found the food and people of Myanmar so simple and delicious he decided to tell the world about it.
This book is the result of Juan’s amazing journey photographing the authentic Myanmar; Guided by recommendations from the indigenous people, Juan traveled across the country asking local people to cook him their favourite dishes. Naturally, he gained genuine, authentic first hand knowledge about their culture and customs.
With this book he will take you all over Myanmar and inspire you to cook with the real masters of Burmese cuisine: the locals.
Filled with the hospitality and generosity of the local families, Delicious Myanmar is both a fantastic cookbook and a unique guide.
You, too, will be fascinated. Enjoy!
Note: Locals cook without measuring out ingredients; therefore this is how the book is written.
Most visitors to Myanmar are mystified by the country’s delicious and diverse cuisine, as it shares few commonalities with those in neighbouring countries. Juan Gallardo took no shortcuts in researching a wide variety of Burmese culinary creations – and the people behind them – in his quest to document traditional cooking techniques and the (often exotic) ingredients. The Spaniard travelled far and wide and often ventured into areas and communities rarely visited by tourists. Delicious Myanmar is a heart-warming book and a stunning visual documentary depicting the people, food and culture of Myanmar.
Lovely book. As delicious looking as its title.
The best food in Myanmar is seldom found in restaurants and cafes; instead you’ll discover it in homes and at street stalls – as Juan Gallardo did. This admirable book documents Juan travels around the country from a culinary and cultural perspective. It’s packed with easy-to-follow recipes and mouth-watering photography, making it a great souvenir of a very special place.
The only way I can describe this book is ‘bookporn.’ This way he describes the food in Myanmar made me so hungry, I had to stop and eat before I finished it. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has interest in Southeast Asia.
In a country where the equivalent of ‘hello’ is ‘have you eaten yet?’ Juan’s travels through Myanmar via it’s food makes for a great journey. Part photo journey, part travel blog, he meets the people behind the dishes and tells their stories. A terrific read and an inspiring way to travel.
Getting to know the specialities of local cuisine is one of the best and most interesting parts of travelling. And it’s a way to understand a foreign country and the lives of its inhabitants. The book “Delicious Myanmar” is unique in that it does not present us Burma from the perspective of the visitor to luxury five-star restaurants, far from everyday life, but rather from that of an inquisitive traveller who meets “ordinary” people who prepare unusually delicious meals.
Brilliant! A tantalizing exploration of the richness of Burmese cuisine.
If this doesn’t whet your appetite to visit Myanmar nothing will. Packed full of pictures, recipes and ideas of where to go and crucially what to eat.
A wonderful documentation of a traveller’s personal experience of Myanmar today. It is quite apparent from reading his book that Juan has fallen in love with the people, food and culture of Myanmar.
