    China is a very large country (the 3rd or 4th largest in area depending on the method of calculation used and what is included), with the largest population of any country in the world. Each region of China has its own distinctive culinary style and flavors, the regions being, Anhui ("Hui"), Cantonese (Yue"), Fujian ("Min"), Hunan ("Xiang"), Jiangsu ("Su" or "Yang"), Shandong ("Lu"), Szechuan ("Chuan") and Zhejiang ("Zhe"). There is also of course a large population of people of Chinese descent in many other countries, and these communities have developed both new dishes and variants on pre-existing dishes, by adapating Chinese cooking techniques to local tastes and ingredients.

    In general, Chinese meals consist of two main elements:
    1. Main food (Mandarin: Zhushi) - Noodles, rice or steamed buns ("mantou").

    2. Accompanying dishes (Mandarin: Cai - literally translated this means "vegetable") Cai which in Mandarin means - Accompanying dishes of meat, fish or vegetables.
    Chinese food

    Some of the most popular Chinese recipes and dishes include:
    • Century egg - This is a method of preparing chicken, duck or quail eggs. The eggs are preserved for several weeks or months in ash, clay, lime, salt, and rice straw. As a result of chemical reactions caused in the egg during this processing, the yolk of egg becomes dark green with a sulphur-ammonia smell, and the white becomes a brown transparent jelly. Century eggs can be eaten on their own as a side dish, or they can used in an ingredient in other dishes such as porridge (congee), omelettes, etc.

    • Congee - A Chinese version of porridge. It is usually made from rice, but it can also be made from barley, cornmeal, millet or sorghum.

    • Dumplings - Steamed ("jiaozi"), fried ("guotie"), or boiled ("shuijiao") dumplings. They can contain vegetables, meat, or meat and vegetables.

    • Egg roll - Chopped vegetables, meat, and sometimes noodles, wrapped in dough. The dough is then dipped in an egg wash, and finally deep-fried. Egg rolls are often eaten as appetizers, are sometimes called "spring rolls". In the United Kingdom, the dish is sometimes known as "pancake roll".

      Egg rolls

    • General Tso's chicken - This dish is practically unknown in China itself, but is very popular in Chinese restaurants in the United States and Canada. It is deep fried chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce.

    • Kung Po (also known "Kung Pao") chicken - Spicy chicken. In China, the dish is made with Sichuan peppercorns, Shaoxing wine, and unroasted cashew nuts or peanuts. In the United States and Europe, the dish is often westernized using locally available ingredients and bell peppers.

      Kung Pao chicken

    • Peking duck - This dish originates from Beijing in China. It is made by glazing a duck in syrup and then roasting it, although in in the United Kingdom, the dish is usually known as "crispy aromatic duck" and is prepared using aromatic spices including five-spice powder, and by frying the duck instead of roasting. The key to eating this dish, is how it is served - the duck is carved in front of diners, and then eaten with steamed pancakes (Mandarin: pinyin), scallions and plum sauce.

    • Soy egg - A hard-boiled egg flavored with herbs and spices, and in soy sauce, sugar and water,

    • Wonton soup - Wontons are dumplings. There are many different varieties found in different Chinese cuisines. In the North American Chinese cuisine, wontons are often served in a clear broth soup.

      Wonton soup

    • Xiaolongbao - Steamed buns containing meat soup, seafood or vegetables. In the case of the meat soup containing variety, they are prepared by placing meat gelatin inside the bun before steaming, and the heat from the steam in the cooking process turns the gelatin into soup. Xiaolongbao can be made from raised or unraised flour - the version with raised flour are common throughout China (and are sometimes known as "baozi"), whereas the version made from unraised flour are most often eaten in southern China.

      Xiaolongbao

    • Zongzi - Glutinous rice and a filling, wrapped in bamboo leaves and then boiled or steamed.

    Winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for International Cooking

    The stir-fry is all things: refined, improvisational, adaptable, and inventive. It is the rare culinary practice that makes less seem like more, and by which small amounts of food feed many.

    For centuries the Chinese have carried their woks to all corners of the earth and re-created stir-fry dishes, using local and sometimes nontraditional ingredients. The old expression: "One wok runs to the sky’s edge" means "one who uses the wok becomes master of the cooking world." And as the wok user becomes master of the cooking world, so does he become master of the stir-fry, one of the greatest techniques of Chinese cookery.

    The technique and tradition of stir-frying, which is at once simple yet subtly complex, is as vital today as it has been for hundreds of years. In Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, James Beard Award-winning author Grace Young shares more than 100 classic stir-fry recipes that sizzle with heat and pop with flavor, from the great Cantonese stir-fry masters to the culinary customs of Sichuan, Hunan, Shanghai, Beijing, Fujian, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia, as well as other countries around the world. With more than 80 stunning full-color photographs, Young’s definitive work illustrates the innumerable, easy-to-learn possibilities the technique offers—dry stir-fries, moist stir-fries, clear stir-fries, velvet stir-fries—and weaves the insights of Chinese cooking philosophy into the preparation of such beloved dishes as Kung Pao Chicken, Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli, Chicken Lo Mein with Ginger Mushrooms, and Dry-Fried Sichuan Beans. In honoring the traditions of her cultural ancestors who traveled the globe, Young offers delectable crossover recipes for Chinese Jamaican Jerk Chicken Fried Rice, Chinese Trinidadian Stir-Fried Shrimp with Rum, Chinese Burmese Chili Chicken, and Chinese American Shrimp with Lobster Sauce.

    Expert home cooks and professional chefs teach you the foundations of stir-fry mastery in the modern kitchen—everything from how to choose, season, and care for a wok and the best skillet alternative; the importance of marinades and the proper technique for slicing meat and poultry for optimum tenderness; to how to select and handle Asian vegetables; ways to shortcut labor-intensive preparations; and tips on how to control heat and choose the best cooking oil.

    Fascinating personal portraits illustrate how stir-frying is not just a cooking technique but a vital element of China’s rich culture. With this book, Grace Young has created the authoritative guide to stir-frying, a work that is at once rewarding and beautiful, much like the technique of stir-frying itself.

    • Used Book in Good Condition
    Product Description:
    When Grace Young was a child, her father instilled in her a lasting appreciation of wok hay, the highly prized but elusive taste that food achieves when properly stir-fried in a wok. As an adult, Young aspired to create that taste in her own kitchen.

    Grace Young's quest to master wok cooking led her throughout the United States, Hong Kong, and mainland China. Along with award-winning photographer Alan Richardson, Young sought the advice of home cooks, professional chefs, and esteemed culinary teachers like Cecilia Chiang, Florence Lin, and Ken Hom. Their instructions, stories, and recipes, gathered in this richly designed and illustrated volume, offer not only expert lessons in the art of wok cooking, but also capture a beautiful and timeless way of life.

    With its emphasis on cooking with all the senses, The Breath of a Wok brings the techniques and flavors of old-world wok cooking into today's kitchen, enabling anyone to stir-fry with wok hay. IACP award-winner Young details the fundamentals of selecting, seasoning, and caring for a wok, as well as the range of the wok's uses; this surprisingly inexpensive utensil serves as the ultimate multipurpose kitchen tool. The 125 recipes are a testament to the versatility of the wok, with stir-fried, smoked, pan-fried, braised, boiled, poached, steamed, and deep-fried dishes that include not only the classics of wok cooking, like Kung Pao Chicken and Moo Shoo Pork, but also unusual dishes like Sizzling Pepper and Salt Shrimp, Three Teacup Chicken, and Scallion and Ginger Lo Mein. Young's elegant prose and Richardson's extraordinary photographs create a unique and unforgettable picture of artisan wok makers in mainland China, street markets in Hong Kong, and a "wok-a-thon" in which Young's family of aunties, uncles, and cousins cooks together in a lively exchange of recipes and stories. A visit with author Amy Tan also becomes a family event when Tan and her sisters prepare New Year's dumplings. Additionally, there are menus for family-style meals and for Chinese New Year festivities, an illustrated glossary, and a source guide to purchasing ingredients, woks, and accessories.

    Written with the intimacy of a memoir and the immediacy of a travelogue, this recipe-rich volume is a celebration of cultural and culinary delights.

    Create nuanced, complex, authentic Chinese flavors at home by learning the cuisine's fundamental techniques.
     
    Winner of the 2016 IACP Julia Child First Book Award

    Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees offers a unique introduction to Chinese home cooking, demystifying it by focusing on its basic cooking methods. In outlining the differences among various techniques--such as pan-frying, oil steeping, and yin-yang frying--and instructing which one is best for particular ingredients and end results, culinary expert Kian Lam Kho provides a practical, intuitive window into this unique cuisine. Once one learns how to dry stir-fry chicken, one can then confidently apply the technique to tofu, shrimp, and any number of ingredients. 

    Accompanied by more than 200 photographs, including helpful step-by-step images, the 158 recipes range from simple, such as Spicy Lotus Root Salad or Red Cooked Pork, to slightly more involved, including authentic General Tso's Chicken or Pork Shank Soup with Winter Bamboo. But the true brilliance behind this innovative book lies in the way it teaches the soul of Chinese cooking, enabling home cooks to master this diverse, alluring cuisine and then to re-create any tempting dish they encounter or can imagine.

    Winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for International Cooking

    The stir-fry is all things: refined, improvisational, adaptable, and inventive. It is the rare culinary practice that makes less seem like more, and by which small amounts of food feed many.

    For centuries the Chinese have carried their woks to all corners of the earth and re-created stir-fry dishes, using local and sometimes nontraditional ingredients. The old expression: "One wok runs to the sky’s edge" means "one who uses the wok becomes master of the cooking world." And as the wok user becomes master of the cooking world, so does he become master of the stir-fry, one of the greatest techniques of Chinese cookery.

    The technique and tradition of stir-frying, which is at once simple yet subtly complex, is as vital today as it has been for hundreds of years. In Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, James Beard Award-winning author Grace Young shares more than 100 classic stir-fry recipes that sizzle with heat and pop with flavor, from the great Cantonese stir-fry masters to the culinary customs of Sichuan, Hunan, Shanghai, Beijing, Fujian, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia, as well as other countries around the world. With more than 80 stunning full-color photographs, Young’s definitive work illustrates the innumerable, easy-to-learn possibilities the technique offers—dry stir-fries, moist stir-fries, clear stir-fries, velvet stir-fries—and weaves the insights of Chinese cooking philosophy into the preparation of such beloved dishes as Kung Pao Chicken, Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli, Chicken Lo Mein with Ginger Mushrooms, and Dry-Fried Sichuan Beans. In honoring the traditions of her cultural ancestors who traveled the globe, Young offers delectable crossover recipes for Chinese Jamaican Jerk Chicken Fried Rice, Chinese Trinidadian Stir-Fried Shrimp with Rum, Chinese Burmese Chili Chicken, and Chinese American Shrimp with Lobster Sauce.

    Expert home cooks and professional chefs teach you the foundations of stir-fry mastery in the modern kitchen—everything from how to choose, season, and care for a wok and the best skillet alternative; the importance of marinades and the proper technique for slicing meat and poultry for optimum tenderness; to how to select and handle Asian vegetables; ways to shortcut labor-intensive preparations; and tips on how to control heat and choose the best cooking oil.

    Fascinating personal portraits illustrate how stir-frying is not just a cooking technique but a vital element of China’s rich culture. With this book, Grace Young has created the authoritative guide to stir-frying, a work that is at once rewarding and beautiful, much like the technique of stir-frying itself.
