|The Gourmet Chinese Regional Cookbook|
It provides an introduction to the wide variety of cultures within China by describing and identifying the social and historical forces that have molded each region.
The authors explain why a particular region came to produce its own unique flavorings and culinary styles — from the mild dishes of Peking to the spicy dishes of Szechwan to the piquant dishes of Canton.
The recipes are organized by regions and by categories of food within these areas, enabling any recipe to be readily located. Each of the recipes have been carefully tested, with clear and definitive instructions for their preparation and cooking, along with the techniques and ingredients needed in preparing Chinese food.
“I have lived by only a few of its fabulous dishes — shrimp, eggplant, cabbage. Worth it for that alone. It is authentic and essential.” — Richard Stewart, Amazon book review
“It is terrific. The recipes are great and easy to follow, and the information about the regional cuisines is fantastic. It is my favorite Asian cookbook.” — SG, Amazon book review
