This lavishly photographed and sophisticated cookbook/restaurant/food almanac, by chef-extraordinaire Isadora Chai, delves into Chai's satirical, experimental recipes behind each menu creation that comprises her famed themed degustations, which occur each month at her hole-in the-wall restaurant, Bistro a Table, in Kuala Lumpur.
Through the pages of this extraordinary and beautifully designed book, resplendent with stunning photography, Isadora Chai explores a gastro gourmand's take on a delicious array of superbly satirical but infinitely edible recipes. If the degustations at her own little hole-in-the-wall, Bistro à Table in Kuala Lumpur, were constantly driven to be out of the box, furthering the mantra, Edible Satire looks to turning the box inside out.
Chai presents a wide range of dishes directly reversed, such as the Reversed Sushi and the Reversed Root Beer Float, where the proportions of the components and the composition of well-known dishes are reversed. And then to take a step further, the courses are also served in a similarly reversible fashion. Intrigued? This book is a spectacular snapshot of a culinary expert whose star continues to rise.
