Facing challenges in an increasingly colonial world, Chye Hoon, a
rebellious young girl, must learn to embrace her mixed Malayan-Chinese
identity as a Nyonya--and her destiny as a cook, rather than following her
first dream of attending school like her brother. Amidst the smells of
chillies and garlic frying, Chye Hoon begins to appreciate the richness of
her traditions, eventually marrying Wong Peng Choon, a Chinese man.
Together, they have ten children. At last, she can pass on the stories she

along with her wonderful kueh (cakes). But the cultural shift towards the
West has begun. Chye Hoon finds herself afraid of losing the heritage she
so prizes as her children move more and more into the modernising Western
