This recipe was collected by travel editor Richard Sterling on his trip to Burma. It was created by Renatto Buhlman, executive chef of the Strand Hotel. Renatto says to use the best quality, unscented tea available. At the Strand they give you a fork, but everywhere else you eat this with your fingers. Serving suggestion: La Phet makes an excellent appetizer with chips and a lager beer or a dry sparkling wine. In Hawaii, you might try a Maui Blanc dry pineapple wine. At any rate, don't take it with iced tea! From the article Exotic & Spicy Salads.
Thanks to Arthur Pais for this recipe. Arthur, born and raised in Madras, India, knows his region and certainly knows his food. Madras is known for its fiery food and excellent cuisine, and Arthur says that every home has at least two varieties of chile preserves in the pantry at all times. "Over many front doors hang a string of green chiles to ward off the evil eye," he noted. This is an excellent accompaniment to grilled salmon.

Mangos and coconut milk are meant for each other, and sticky rice is the icing on the cake. Try to get yellow-skinned "Manila" mangos if you can—the flavor is stronger and more acidic than the green and red-skinned South American varieties.
This salad has a few basic ingredients, but it is also ripe to receive odds and ends from your refrigerator; if you don't have alfalfa sprouts, substitute bean sprouts. If you have a garden, the freshness of this salad will be further enhanced
Most pumpkin pies use canned solid-packed pumpkin, which gives the end product that nice smoothness we’ve all come to appreciate. The flesh you scrape out of a large pumpkin is more akin to wet pasta than what you find in a can. No one likes runny pumpkin pie. Luckily, my friend Sam had some experience dealing with scavenged pumpkin meat. On his advice, I strained the pumpkin through some cheese cloth and let it dry until it was damp but not wet, then pureed it until I had the 2 cups called for in the recipe.

One evening at Marie Permenter's house in Trinidad, with Scotch-and-coconut water cocktails in hand, Mary Jane and I began discussing the versatility of mangos. Marie dashed into the kitchen and proceeded to whip up the following chutney for us to taste. Because of the ingredients, one would think that the taste is overwhelming. But quite the contrary; it is delicate and can be used as a dip for chips (plantain chips work well), vegetables, or crackers. Spanish thyme is also known as Indian borage (Coleus amboinicus), and Cuban oregano. Its origin is unknown, but it is grown as a fresh herb in many parts of the Caribbean.
