Most North Americans don’t have a favourite Burmese takeout joint; most don't have mohinga (a Burmese equivalent of Vietnamese pho) on a menu rotation. But Naomi Duguid's "Burma: Rivers of Flavor" introduces readers to this less well-known cuisine in a richly photographed tome that gives armchair travellers a look at the country’s culture through its food.

Burma (now Myanmar) shares borders with Thailand, China, and India, among others. Some recipes, especially the salads, look quite similar to those for Thai dishes, based on everything from long beans to pomelos. Others, such as paneer in tomato sauce and chicken aloo, echo the Indian subcontinent. Similarities to Chinese cuisine show up in recipes like pork strips with star anise. These influences combine with those of Burma’s indigenous cultures to make a unique cuisine.

Eye-catching photographs capture not just food but people and everyday sights, showing how “all over Burma the innate generosity of the culture is on display.”
