    There are few pictures and the paper stock is not laminated.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Oseland mentions one of his teachers buying daun kunyit (turmeric leaves) from the market, but does not include them in any of the recipes.

    Another omission is torch ginger buds.

    Bottom line, i am very very happy with this book, but it is not the encylopedia of uncompromised spice islands/indonesian/malay/singapore recipes.

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Don't worry about the lack of pictures.

    I've been waiting for a while to hear that oseland has written a sequel to this book or just published an update to this book but i've been disappointed so far that none has come.
