A Pictorial Guide to Malay Desserts


“Tak kenal maka tak cinta.” You cannot love what you do not know.


Many of us have tasted Malay kuih and know how they look like, but do we know the stories behind the names and origins of the kuih we love to eat? Why is a certain kuih of a particular shape or colour? What are the similarities between some kuih from the Malay diaspora?


This charming, illustrated guide of 120 Malay kuih aims to encourage a deeper cultural understanding of the diversity of Malay kuih. We hope that this guide will not only whet your appetite for delicious Malay kuih but will also serve as ‘food for thought’, sparking your interest to delve into an exciting world and discover the intricacies of the heritage food of the Malays.
