I am insanely jealous of Naomi Duguid. This writer, photographer, cook and traveller has made a career out seeing of the world and bringing it home in cookbooks. What a dream job for a foodie with wanderlust! Duguid has written six books about Asian cooking alone and this year came out with “Burma: Rivers of Flavor” (Artisan 2013). The book won the International Association of Culinary Professionals (ICAP) 2013 award for Culinary Travel for Naomi and her co-author Jeff Alford. Burma, or Myanmar, is a country steeped in mystery. An ancient civilization, it became a British colony in the 1800s and only gained independence in 1948. Unfortunately Independence heralded the arrival of one of the longest civil wars ever recorded. In fact, it was untouched by the outside world for generations and really has only opened up in 2010. As a result, it is one of the least-developed countries in the entire world.
