Change of Season

Sloane Crosley picks out the best new books to take you from summer to fall.

The name of the stunning new cookbook, Hot Sour Salty Sweet (Artisan), is a reference to the taste sensations discovered by the authors, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid. The two journeyed deep into the Mekong area of Southeast Asia. Their recipes, beautifully sensitive photographs, and intelligent, amusing text serve to explore the cuisines of Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, among others, which are linked by a common palate. Such dishes as ginger chicken noodle soup, grilled lemongrass beef, and slow-cooked sweet and spicy fish illustrate a distinctive way of combining flavors. The book, a valuable addition to the cook's and travel enthusiast's library, brings to life the connection between people, culture, and food. hotsoursaltysweet.com/html/about.html
