Publisher pulls Singaporean cookbook ‘Makan’ amid plagiarism allegations


In “Makan,” Haigh wrote that she wanted to preserve the recipes and techniques used by her Singaporean mother, whose cooking she ate growing up in the United Kingdom. (Her father is English.) “This project has been about collecting, adapting and understanding these recipes because I didn’t want them to be lost,” she wrote. She acknowledged that many of the dishes might not be considered strictly “authentic,” since they incorporated ingredients available to her family in the U.K. and her own family’s tastes. “They are authentic to me because they are my history, my journey and the refection of my family as it has grown and developed over the years.”
