Description: Jenny and Vivienne Lo (daughters of the late Kenneth Lo, internationally known restaurateur and food writer) run Jenny Lo's Teahouse, a busy Chinese noodle bar in the heart of London. Their aim is to make basic, well-balanced oriental food accessible and attractive to the English palate.
The Lo sisters have combined their considerable talents to produce this fascinating book, which includes not only the best of home-cooking and street food from Beijing, Sichuan and the South, but also intimate glimpses of how life in China revolves around the teahouses.
Concentrating less on red meat and more on fresh vegetables served in home-made stocks and raw salads, with the emphasis on steaming, grilling and wok cooking, the recipes are both good to eat and good for you.
Jenny Lo reveals the secrets behind particular favorites on the menu at Jenny Lo's Teahouse, such as long-cooked pork with chestnuts and black bean seafood tossed with fresh egg noodles, while Vivienne a well-known acupuncturist and early Chinese medical historian -- has devoted a chapter to oriental dietary therapy, emphasizing the inseparable link between food and medicine in Chinese health.
