If you're looking to switch up your cooking routine, we have the books for you. 

"Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking," "Healthy South Indian Cooking," and "Flavors of Malaysia: A Journey through Time, Tastes, and Traditions" share a common thread of beautiful photographs and delicious recipes. Each having a slightly different base, focusing on different Asian countries, the books are a perfect mix of novelty and practicality.

Take "Flavors of Malaysia," for example. The book serves as a looking hole into Malaysian culture, telling the history of the country as a tool for exploration into its extensive culture and food. The mix of cultures found in the country, with sociologists having classified some 180 identifiable ethnic groups there, according to the book, make for an incredible mixture of flavors found in the food. Combining flavors and recipes from East Asia, the Middle East and Europe, Malaysia is a melting pot of food history.
