Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cold spiced eggplant

    • ellabee on October 02, 2022

      Emily used to make this in her Chinese period. It's delicious and can accompany a wide range of other Chinese dishes.

  • Cold noodles with spicy sauce

    • PinchOfSalt on July 22, 2013

      Substituted Chenkiang vinegar for the red wine vinegar that the recipe lists. Used pre-cooked Chinese egg noodles (Twin Marquis brand) that were marked as being suitable for being served cold. The sauce was delicious but the noodles' texture was way too soft. Next time I will get some thin uncooked "wonton" noodles and use the same variation on the sauce. Adding a last-minute scattering of freshly sliced scallion could be nice, too.

  • Poached chicken with ginger and scallion sauce

    • PinchOfSalt on July 14, 2014

      The recipe can be found here http://books.google.com/books?id=eiw-EnIm0g4C&pg=PT54&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=4#v=onepage&q&f=false

  • Celery cabbage with chicken sauce

    • Compass on January 06, 2020

      The classic salt and sweet balance of Chinese cooking are used here and could offset bitter elements in the flavor of the cabbage.
