The Hakka Cookbook: Chinese Soul Food from around the World

The Hakka Cookbook: Chinese Soul Food from around the World Lowest new price: $23.79
Lowest used price: $14.48
List price: $39.95
Author: Linda Lau Anusasananan
Brand: Linda Lau Anusasananan

Veteran food writer Linda Lau Anusasananan opens the world of Hakka cooking to Western audiences in this fascinating chronicle that traces the rustic cuisine to its roots in a history of multiple migrations. Beginning in her grandmother’s kitchen in California, Anusasananan travels to her family’s home in China, and from there fans out to embrace Hakka cooking across the globe—including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Peru, and beyond. More than thirty home cooks and chefs share their experiences of the Hakka diaspora as they contribute over 140 recipes for everyday Chinese comfort food as well as more elaborate festive specialties.

This book likens Hakka cooking to a nomadic type of “soul food,” or a hearty cooking tradition that responds to a shared history of hardship and oppression. Earthy, honest, and robust, it reflects the diversity of the estimated 75 million Hakka living in China and greater Asia, and in scattered communities around the world—yet still retains a core flavor and technique. Anusasananan’s deep personal connection to the tradition, together with her extensive experience testing and developing recipes, make this book both an intimate journey of discovery and an exciting introduction to a vibrant cuisine.

Joyce Chen Cook Book (English and Traditional Chinese Edition)

Joyce Chen Cook Book (English and Traditional Chinese Edition) Lowest new price: $76.43
Lowest used price: $11.51
List price: $416.98
Author: Joyce Chen

Joyce Chen (1917 - 1994) was a Chinese chef, restaurateur, author, television personality, and entrepreneur. Joyce Chen was credited with popularizing northern-style Chinese cuisine in the United States, coining the name "Peking Raviolis" for potstickers, inventing and holding the patent to the flat bottom wok with handle (also known as a stir fry pan), and developing the first line of bottled Chinese stir fry sauces for the US market. Starting in 1958, she operated several popular Chinese restaurants in Cambridge, MA. Joyce Chen died of Alzheimer's disease in 1994; since then, her accomplishments and influence on American cuisine have been honored by the US Postal Service and the City of Cambridge. In this book, exquisite, subtle, different recipes are included, but it provides much more than that. It explains how to select meats and vegetables; how to buy and how to prepare. Here you will discover the correct way to make Chinese tea, prepare rice, use chopsticks, and learn about the three great regional schools of cooking within China: Cantonese, Mandarin, Szechuan. All of the hows and whys and whereas are in this book. Mrs. Chen carefully explains and demonstrates with illustrations when necessary, all the process of food preparation the Chinese way. Her recipes are simple, clear and flexible enough so that the cook can find substitutes for ingredients that may be hard to procure. All the recipes in this book can be prepared successfully anywhere in the country by a reasonably adequate cook in a reasonably adequate kitchen. Mrs. Chen believes you will discover that there is less effort and greater reward cooking the Chinese way. As the world-famous heart specialist, Dr. Paul Dudley White, points out in his foreword; "Joyce Chen's recipes are commendable for several reasons. In the first place, they are a delight to the gourmet; secondly, they represent real Chinese cooking at its best; and thirdly, they are good for the health>"
