Ayam Brand™, famed for its wide range of healthy and convenient, preservative-free canned products, has launched its first Fish and Olive Oil recipe book to reintroduce the health benefits of fish and olive oil, reverse the trend of eating out for dinner daily and to simplify some well-loved traditional recipes in a bid to make easy, tasty and healthy eating a reality for busy people.
The Fish and Olive Oil recipe book features 30 recipes, 15 using Ayam Brand Tuna in Olive Oil and 15 using Ayam Brand Sardines in Olive Oil. The recipes were created by famed food stylist, Pelita Lim and photographed by noted photographer Keat Song.
Most of the recipes can be whipped up in 40 minutes or less and cover a range of cuisine from Malay, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Italian, French and fusion that will engage cooks and the people they feed with a variety of healthy meal options that are simple to prepare, fast to cook, full of flavor and use ingredients that are readily available in most homes.
The recipes in the book carry Pelita Lim’s unique signature that combines the best of home-cooking with the polish of a culinary professional. Pelita started cooking when she was nine years old. She completed a French diploma in hotel management majoring in culinary before working in several hotels and restaurants in Singapore and Malaysia. She later became a food writer with leading culinary magazines. She began her career as a food stylist in 2005 and is now a sought after stylist for major brands in South-East Asia having done cooking shows, developed recipes and styled products for television commercial, product packaging, cookbooks and menus.
“For me should be a fast, fun, communal experience without the stress of hard-to-find ingredients, difficult cooking techniques or expensive equipment. It should be tasty, there should be a variety of cuisine to avoid boredom, healthy and if possible it should look good and smell good to engage the senses of the diners. I’ve put in recipes that use fish and olive oil from my childhood, from my education in culinary arts, from my work experience and from traveling bits for an eclectic selection that anyone can replicate at home,” Ms Lim said.
The hardcover book is beautifully illustrated, with recipes in simple, easy to follow language. It is available for free to the public who send their name, mailing address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
