Overview

Ken and Ching cooked their way across China, searching for exciting new flavors and culinary ideas as well as the ultimate recipes for standard favorites—this book is the result

Ken Hom and Ching-He Huang teamed up for a once in a lifetime culinary journey to explore the food of their homeland, looking for the old, the new, and the unexpected. They arrive in Beijing to examine the influences of the West on traditional Imperial cuisine and talk to cutting-edge chefs about their take on Peking Duck. They cook with local families, en route to discovering the influence of Buddhism on vegetarian food and whether the Chinese did actually invent tortellini in remote Kashgar, before traveling to Sichuan Province, China's gastronomic capital. But this is more than a culinary journey; this is a homecoming for Ken and Ching, and they make their own pilgrimages to Guangdong and Fujian to discover their personal and culinary roots. Ching admires Ken's experience and knowledge, while Ken respects Ching's modern influences. Together they bring a unique and authoritative perspective on Chinese food that will surprise and inform. Includes dual measurements.
