Editorial Reviews

This is Eileen Yin-Fei Lo's tenth and perhaps most personal Chinese cookbook. In My Grandmother's Chinese Kitchen, she shares recipes and stories from the woman who first inspired her culinary experiments. Her reminiscences blend familial, culinary, and cultural details; it is almost as if Grandmom's recipes grow out of this full-flavored stew, rather than existing as separate entities. Ms. Lo, who teaches at the Chinese Institute, provides fascinating tutorials on traditional Chinese cooking techniques such as stir-frying, steaming, roasting, stewing, and braising. A passport to a major world cuisine.
