Chinese Cookery is Ken Hom's timeless collection of over 150 recipes. These classic dishes have been passed down from generation to generation and follow the Chinese rules of balance to ensure a harmony of colour, texture, aroma and flavour.
Recipes include old favourites such as Cashew Chicken, and Sichuan Prawns in Chilli Sauce as well as new recipes from the kitchens of Hong Kong and Taiwan such as Steamed Salmon with Black Beans and Mango Chicken. Although Ken emphasises the need for authentic ingredients and good cooking technique, these are everyday recipes – simply written and easy-to-follow, and they are all infused with Ken Hom's infectious enthusiasm for the cuisine plus helpful tips for the home cook.
Packed with indispensable information on ingredients, equipment and preparation techniques, Chinese Cookery is beautiful, authentic and clear, and remains one of the most popular and inspirational Chinese cookbooks ever published.
Ken Hom is the world's greatest authority on Oriental cuisine and Chinese Cookery has sold over 1 million copies since it was first published.
