The cookbook adventure continues!
I’m really excited to share that I have just signed with literary agent, Elise Dillsworth. Elise and I were introduced to each other by Don Sloane from the Oxford Cultural Collective. We finally met when I was in London as part of the Yan Kit So Award ceremony. We’ll be working together over the next few months to put the pitch together for my Malaysian cookbook.
My cookbook explores how Malaysia’s history has shaped its many cuisines. I started writing it before the pandemic, in memory of my mum and to see it starting to come together feels unbelievable. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but I’m excited for whatever happens.
I’ll be heading to Malaysia soon for a little research and photography trip, so more details to come!
