    A cook book infused with Chinese heritage - 75 easy to follow recipes New edition of the classic, bestselling traditional Chinese cookbook, a staple in Chinese and US kitchens for 83 years First printed in 1936, the book has been reprinted 68 times and has sold over 300,000 copies in China. The present edition features a new preface and new introductions to chapters by Dolly's great-grand-niece, art collector and philanthropist Carolyn Hsu-Balcer. The provinces of China are united by their love of a good meal. Each has their own specialties and methods of preparation - all of which are, of course, purported to be 'the best'.

The result is an informative and delicious peek into the Chinese food culture of the early twentieth century. Requiring only minimal materials and expertise, the recipes are accessible and flavourful, while the insights into traditional Chinese eating customs will be of use for travellers hoping to dine authentically while abroad. Chow! guides the reader through the basics - how to wash rice, serve tea and make noodles from scratch - before introducing them to a variety of dishes based around meat, seafood and vegetables. Whether you seek familiar tastes or adventurous dishes, Chow! has it all: from stuffed mushrooms and fried rice to minced pigeon, crab fat with green vegetables and duck tongue soup. AUTHOR: Dolly Chow is the daughter of Sir Shouson Chow, a well-known Qing Dynasty official, financier and international scholar who was one of the first students chosen by the Chinese government to attend an American university.

    Twenty-four of the country's minority groups call Yunnan home, each retaining their own traditions. Stretching from the Himalayan plateau down to the subtropics, Yunnan encompasses extremes from alpine meadows to rainforest. It is the most diverse region in China culturally, biologically, and meteorologically. On a culinary level, this means Yunnan is one of the most delicious places on earth. The region is famous for its mushrooms, hams, pickles, edible flowers, its use of potatoes, and its love of chillies and Sichuan peppercorns. Yunnan's food is exciting and unfamiliar, but much of it is actually quite easy to make, using simple techniques already familiar to Western cooks. Each chapter covers a different area featuring its cardinal recipes such as Tibetan momo dumplings, Dai cucumber salad with peanuts, the famed "crossingthe- bridge" noodles of Kunming, Eastern-style fried rice with ham, potatoes, and peas, and roasted eggplant salad from near the Burmese border. Complete with profiles of local cooks, artisans, and farmers, as well as breathtaking on-location photography, COOKING SOUTH OF THE CLOUDS takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the land of Shangri-La and introduces a new world of flavours.
