About the Author

Lara Lee is an Australian chef and food writer of Chinese-Indonesian heritage. She is a regular contributor to Food52, the New York Times, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit and the Guardian, and in 2023 she was named a nominee for the James Beard Award for Journalism. Her first book, Coconut & Sambal, was named one of the best cookbooks of 2020 by the New York Times, the Guardian, Eater, National Geographic and many more. When she's not cooking, you'll find her teaching Indonesian words to her little boy Jonah. A Splash of Soy is her second book. @laraleefood
