Chinese-ish : home cooking not quite authentic 100% delicious / recipes by Rosheen Kaul ; illustrations by Joanna Hu.

Kaul, Rosheen, (author.). Hu, Joanna, (illustrator.).


"A cookbook celebrating the blending of cultures and identity through food, with a bounty of Chinese-influenced dishes from all over South-East Asia As immigrants with Chinese heritage, Rosheen Kaul and Joanna Hu spent their formative years living between (at least) two cultures and wondering how they fitted in. Food was a huge part of this journey; should they cling to the traditional comfort of their parents' varied culinary heritage, attempt to assimilate wholly by learning to love mashed potatoes, or forge a new path where flavor and the freedom to choose trumped authenticity? They went with option three. Chinese-ish celebrates the confident blending of culture and identity through food--take what you love and reject what doesn't work for you. You'll find a bounty of inauthentic Chinese-influenced dishes from all over South-East Asia, including all the best rice and noodle dishes, wontons, and dumplings. There are also plenty of tips and shortcuts to demystify any tricky-sounding techniques, and a reassuring list of pantry staples and where to find them."-- Provided by publisher
