Publishers Text

Food writer and world authority on Chinese cuisine, Deh-Ta Hsiung, introduces and describes over 100 essential ingredients for Chinese cooking. He provides at least two delicious recipes for each ingredient to demonstrate their versatility, including Steamed Scallops with Black Bean sauce, Stir-fried Chicken with Coriander and Shredded Duck with Mango. Every page is lavishly illustrated with cultural pictures of China as well as stunning recipe photography, which bring to life cooking in China today and tempt the reader with their colour and spice of life. Ken Hom writes: Deh-Ta Hsiung demystifies the Chinese culinary art and its traditions. You will find helpful advice on what to look for when shopping for these exotic ingredients, how to use them, as well as which particular brands you should look for and why. This bold and unique cookbook, with its great wealth of information and photographs, will guide you clearly and simply through the thicket of ingredients readily available in supermarkets and Chinese grocers today.
