Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the benchmark guide that has taught a generation of North Americans how to cook Chinese food. Repeatedly singled out as one of the all-time cookbook bibles, this "thoughtful, accessible introduction" (Gourmet) is the product of more than ten years of study, research, and experience. Nina Simonds covers all the essentials of the classic repertoire, including the main culinary regions of China and their flavors as well as basic cooking methods, ingredients (plus their substitutes), and equipment. The more than 225 recipes strike a balance between tradition (Crispy-Skin Duck and One Hundred Corner Shrimp Balls) and innovation (Lemon Chicken Wings, Curry Turnovers), and between the everyday (Pan-Fried Noodles with Beef and Broccoli) and the exotic (Mongolian Barbecue with Sesame Flatbreads).
