  • Emperors Feast
    Emperors Feast
    ISBN: 9781529332445
    Publication date: 01/02/2021

    From the humble takeaway to the high-end restaurants of a big-city Chinatown, Chinese food can be found everywhere in the world. But the meals on offer merely scratch the surface of a rich and diverse culinary tradition that stretches over 5,000 years of history and over several continents.

    In The Emperor's Feast, author and presenter Jonathan Clements serves up the history of China not according to emperors or battles, but according to its food and drink. This unique history takes us from the rudimentary grain stews of the Bronze Age to the globalised restaurants of the 21st century, revealing how developments in politics, culture and technology created the ingredients, dishes and eating habits that define Chinese food today. We see the influence of invaders such as the Mongols and the Manchus, and discover how food - like the fiery cuisine of Sichuan or the hardy dishes of the north - often became a stand-in for regional and national identities. We also follow Chinese flavours to the shores of Europe and America, where enterprising chefs and home cooks created new traditions and dishes unheard of in the homeland.

    Publication date: 01/01/2015

    You can't really imagine Korea without kimchi. For thousands of years, their fermented vegetables have been absolutely essential at meals. In Korea, kimchi is so much more than food - it is a national cultural treasure, a universal health food and a part of the Korean identity. Koreans are obsessed with good food, and the Lim family is no exception. For two generations, they have retained the proud tradition of kimchi at the Arirang Resturant in Stockholm. This book contains the family's most popular recipes - common, as well as rarer, kimchi recipes, Korean everyday food and the ever recurring bi-bim-bap (which literally means 'mixed rice'). The Lim family present their version of a classic with lettuce, cabbage, chilli and ginger, but also the popular radish kimchi, kattugi, as well as the more unusual varieties with pumpkin, oysters, mushrooms, roots and other vegetables. Sourish, hot and tasty, kimchi is a wonderful accessory for most meals, not only Asian-style dishes but every imaginable Western dish. Here are 'insider' tips on how to go about fermenting vegetables at home. Considering it is so incredibly simple, the result is amazing, beautiful, tasty and healthy, thanks to the built-in riches of good bacteria cultures found in vegetables.
