    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. http://shrestaurants.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Book%20-%20The%20Food%20of%20China

      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.
