Food Column: Sarah Elton Cooks Burmese

There are a lot of people in Toronto who have devoted their careers to food. One of these people is Naomi Duguid. She is the author of a new cookbook featuring Burmese cuisine. It's called Burma: Rivers of Flavor. Our food columnist Sarah Elton told us how it isn't only a book about food from a faraway place but that it is a book that invites us to explore more food in our own city. Listen audio (runs 7:43)

Naomi's tips for exploring food culture in our city's grocery stores: - buy new ingredients - shop in new places - watch what other people are buying - and don't be afraid to ask questions even if the other person doesn't speak your same language!
