"This is a timeless collection of Peranakan recipes by Mrs. Lee Chin Koon, published in 1974. Today, it has been re-written by Shermay Lee, granddaughter of the late Mrs. Lee (1907-1980). She has tried to recapture her grandmother's recipes into two fully illustrated cookbooks. The New Mrs. Lee's Cookbook: Nonya Cuisine features the secrets of Peranakan cuisine and the nonya kitchen. The second volume features a delightful mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Eurasian recipes and also includes anecdotes explaining their origins."

Mrs. Lee Chin Koon (1907-1980) first published Mrs. Lee's Cookbook in 1974 at the age of 67. With more than 50 years of cooking experience, Mrs. Lee wrote the cookbook so that her grandchildren and future generations would continue the tradition of Nonya cuisine. Mrs. Lee's Cookbook has since had numerous reprints and has become widely accepted as one of the authorities on Nonya cuisine in Singapore."
Shermay Lee, her granddaughter, is relaunching the cookbook for a new generation 29 years later. This revised and fully illustrated version makes it possible for any novice to cook classic Nonya dishes such as Ayam Buah Keluak, Nasi Lemak, and Popiah. New useful sections have also been added, including:
- A comprehensive glossary of ingredients
- A glossary of basic kitchen equipment
- Step-by-step illustrations of basic food preparation
- A list of key ingredients to start a Nonya kitchen
- Tips and advice on how to entertain the Nonya way
- Tips on healthier versions of Nonya dishes and Nonya secrets revealed
