Ken Hom is regarded internationally as one of the greatest authorities on Chinese cooking. His pioneering work has not only introduced many homes to the best and most authentic of the country's cuisine, it has also emphasized the Chinese tradition of linking diet with health. In Ken Hom's Chinese Kitchen he has compiled the ultimate practical guide to this great cuisine- a reference book and a recipe collection in one volume. The first part is a comprehensive guide to over 80 ingredients regularly used in Chinese cooking. These include staples such as eggplants and bean curd; flavorings like soy sauce, chili and garlic, and even exotics like lily buds and lotus root. Color photographs aid in recognition of each ingredient, and Hom also provides useful hints on how to choose, store, and best use them. The second part of the book consists of over 100 recipes that exemplify the best of the Chinese tradition and incorporate Hom's own light, modern adaptations of these classic dishes.
