Master the Art of Chinese Cooking with China: The Cookbook

Love Chinese food? Try Cooking up your own flavoursome, easy-to-make dishes from this amazing cookbook.

Written by Kei Lum and Diora Fong Chan, a married couple who both came from families with a deep appreciation for fine food and culinary culture, their goal for China: The Cookbook was to present a collection of recipes that would best represent the cross-section of Chinese cuisine. They have succeeded with this stunning cookbook, that will inspire you to try new recipes from all of China’s diverse regions.

A treat for the eyes and the stomach, China: The Cookbook is beautifully presented, complete with gold embossing around the pages. It’s filled with gorgeous photography of China and has a quirky and colourful layout – not to mention food photography that will leave your mouth watering.  Practically a bible for Chinese food, it has everything you want from appetisers, soups, seafood, meat, vegetables, rice, noodles, and so much more! It’s packed full of those old favourites we know and love such as egg rolls, sweet and sour pork, beef in oyster sauce and fried rice, but also has some recipes that will broaden your horizon and test your skills in the kitchen.

For all those starting out, it has a great equipment page so you will know all the utensils you need to start your cooking journey, as well as some recipe notes to follow at the back. Not only does it give you the recipe and an easy step by step guide, but also details about the region the dish came from. Filled with knowledge and information, this amazing cookbook gives you the history of Chinese food culture so you can understand the origin of the delicious meals you are cooking (and really impress your future guests).

As authors Kei Lum and Diora Fong say, ‘Chinese food is about sharing, whether at home or in a restaurant’. As this Chinese New Year is celebrating the year of the Rooster, why not host a party or invite your friends over and try out their tantalising poultry section? From chicken with cashew nuts or chicken with papaya, to Hainanese chicken with coconut milk or chicken with orange daylily, there are plenty of recipes that are sure to leave your guests satisfied. China: The Cookbook  will be a favourite for families as well, as any kid will love picking out their own homemade Chinese takeaway and making it from scratch!
