    Possibly my favourite cookbook. I hadn't realised how authentic the recipes were until I started getting into chinese in a big way. Here's a link to a few of the things I've done from this great book.

      This is a delightful dish. Spicy, soy-saucey, and wonderful. We love steamed eggplant so it ticked all our boxes. Used Laoganma Chilli Black Bean Sauce which is a standard at our place.

Publishers Text

This book is a celebration of one of the world's greatest cuisines. It takes readers on a journey from the Peking duck restaurants of Beijing to the kitchens of Shanghai, the tea gardens of Hangzhou and the dim sum chefs of Hong Kong, and reveals the food that defines today's Chinese cooking -- from the tastiest barbecued spareribs, crispy skin duck, and flash-cooked pea sprouts to simple noodles and congee.

The Food of China also provides information on:

  • Bean curd
  • Spicy condiments
  • Banquet food
  • Unusual sauces
  • China's teas.

Each book in The Food of... series is a comprehensive introduction to the world's great cuisine. These books feature more than 100 delicious recipes that highlight each country's culinary treasures. With instructive color photographs throughout, each recipe helps readers choose and identify produce, from vegetables and flavorings to street snacks, sweets, and colorful and exotic fruits. Feature sections explore the essence of each culture's food and cooking techniques.
