Burma: Food, Family & Conflict combines original historical research, family stories, and distinctive regional recipes to give a flavour of life and struggles from colonial Burma to contemporary Myanmar.

A tiffin-time-capsule of the end of empire in Burma; an epic account told with relish (in this case, lime pickle and mango chutney) through the memories of a much-loved matriarch. Throw yourself into this exquisite culinary and historical adventure. Burma: for so long cast as a recipe for disaster but here, through the prism of one remarkable family, revealed as the golden land that it is, in a daringly original literary and epicurean triumph.’ 
Jonathan Miller, Asia Correspondent, Channel 4 News

'Analyses the dramatic conflict taking place for years in Burma, all seasoned with delicious recipes.
Javier Solana, President of the Esade Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics & Distinguished Fellow at the Brookings Institution

The restaurant Ma Khin Café was established in the Mercado Colón, Valencia, in 2014 and named after our great grandmother. We serve ‘Decolonial Asian food’. From a steaming pot of khao swe noodles laced with pungent fiery balachaung, to the simple comforting warmth of a bowl of dahl, this is food that takes history and gastronomy seriously. It respects regional culinary traditions, celebrates cultural encounters and sharing, and looks forward to a world where people are welcomed as much as their food.
