Essential Chinese Cooking by Jeremy Pang

This cookbook demystifies it all.

Authentic Chinese cooking is about more than the ingredients. The tools required and the cooking methods used matter just as much. This cookbook demystifies it all. As Jeremy Pang, chef and author of Essential Chinese Cooking, admits, “We Chinese have a knack of keeping our cooking a secret. It’s almost as if, when the Chinese first started migrating across the world, we held a cultural pact – a unanimous understanding that we should open Chinese restaurants, perhaps, but never give away any of the secrets of Chinese cooking.”

Fortunately, he promises that learning essential recipes really isn’t that difficult – a message that shines through in this delightful collection.
