Description: In this practical guide to authentic Chinese cooking, Beverly Lee shows the American cook how to make delicious Chinese dishes -- from the simplest to the most festive and elaborate -- many of which are home style favorites not to be found in restaurants.
Mrs. Lee, an experienced teacher of Chinese cooking, explains in detail the traditional, exclusively Chinese methods of stir frying, steaming, and "red cooking" used in preparing most of these recipes. She discusses the special utensils needed for each method and the substitutes for them to be found in every kitchen. A section on Chinese vegetables, spices, and other ingredients tells how to prepare and store them and where to buy them.
Dishes using familiar Western methods are also included, as are chapters on appetizers, rice and noodles, desserts and appropriate beverages.
The cook who wants to show off her new skills will find the chapter on entertaining particularly valuable. Mrs. Lee not only suggests menus for parties of various sizes, she shows how to plan the actual cooking so the hostess as well as the guests may thoroughly enjoy the unique pleasures of the Chinese cuisine.
