James Oseland Featured on Cookstr.com

W.W. Norton

Our editor-in-chief, James Oseland, is the featured author today on Cookstr.com, where a profile describes his work at Saveur as well as his cookbook, Cradle of Flavor: Home Cooking from the Spice Islands of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore (Norton, 2006). Paired with the blog post is a recipe from Cradle of Flavor, a Javanese salad made with Kaffir lime leaves, fresh grated coconut, and palm sugar. James notes that the salad's dressing is best made with fresh, as opposed to dried, coconut. One last note: Cookstr points out that James appears on Top Chef Masters, which you can watch tonight at eight o'clock on Bravo. —The Editors
