Robyn Eckhardt’s review of Dorothy Culloty‘s book Food from Northern Laos: The Boat Landing Cookbook.
If the cuisine of Laos is little known outside the country, then the cooking of Luang Namtha, its northernmost region, is all but invisible. That may change if the slim, richly illustrated “Food From Northern Laos: The Boat Landing Cookbook,” (Galangal Press, 2010) by New Zealanders Kees Sprengers and Dorothy Culloty gets the attention it deserves.
