The Starter Yunnan Collection includes:

This Starter Yunnan Collection includes Cooking South of the Clouds, a gorgeous cookbook dedicated exclusively to Yunnan food, and some of the most frequently used ingredients in the cuisine, including handcrafted black vinegar, premium Sichuan pepper, ground chilies and black cardamom. 

Nestled south of Sichuan and bordered also by Vietnam, Lao and Myanmar, Yunnan  Province is influenced by all those places. The food is deliciously diverse, varying widely with geography and, particularly, with ethnicity, as Yunnan is home to hundreds of distinct ethnic minority groups. If you love both Sichuan and Vietnamese food, then you will also fall in love Yunnan cuisine, which resembles Sichuan in flavorings such as ground chilies, Sichuan pepper, black vinegar and pickles and Southeast Asia in its herbs, rice noodles and grilled foods.

Author Georgia Freedman has been traveling to Yunnan since 2000 and in 2011 moved there with her photographer husband, Josh Wand, who took the transporting photos in the book. They lived in the capital, Kunming, for two years, traveling the entire province and learning recipes from locals. The book is as generous with the stories and photos of Yunnan cooks as with their recipes. Your copy bought from The Mala Market is signed by the author
