Chicken in the Mango Tree: Food and Life in a Thai-Khmer Village




Chicken in the Mango Tree: Food and Life in a Thai-Khmer Village

Alford, Jeffrey

Douglas & McIntyre

2016, Culinary Narratives, Silver

Chicken in the Mango Tree follows the ebbs and flows of one agricultural year in a remote rural village on the border of Thailand and Cambodia. Bestselling food writer and photographer Jeffrey Alford immerses himself in Thai-Khmer culinary traditions while living in the tiny Thai village of Kravan with his partner Pea, a talented forager, gardener and cook. Stories of village and family life illuminate unique recipes associated with each season. Part memoir, travelogue, cookbook and foodie chronicle, Chicken in a Mango Tree is a distinctive and addictive window into a year in a part of the world that still holds a few mysteries (and edible scorpions).
