The ingredients used in the recipes to contain NO lard/pork and NO trans fat. These recipes can be used by readers who do not eat pork, and also for those who are trying to avoid trans fat (what with all the bad press it's been getting). Trans fat is the unhealthy stuff that's in hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats eg. margarine. It reduces the good cholesterol in our bodies.
So the only fats I use in my recipes are butter and cooking oil.
A sample recipe (rich sugee cake) is posted on http://www.boostprints.com/ Go to the website and click on the picture of my book to view the recipe. It's a really yummy cake which I had spent several hours experimenting in the kitchen.
Here's the back cover. I tried to squeeze in as many pictures as I could. Pictures speak volumes. And they make the back cover so much prettier than just words.
The books are individually wrapped and cost S$4.95 each (inclusive of postage delivery in Singapore) At $4.95, it's actually the same price as the retail store's. In other words, it's free delivery if bought online!! Visit http://www.boostprints.com/ to buy the book. But for overseas orders, there will be a postage charge. It comes up to US$5.95 per copy (inclusive of postage).
I really love this whole publishing book business and plan to come up with more titles to add to my 'Delicious Asian Treats' series. I get to decide on the title, recipes, photographs and the general look of the book. It's really exciting especially when I get my hands on the first printed copy.
If you have any ideas for my future publications, do drop me a mail at this blog or at email@example.com.
