With the assistance of the Wei-Chuan Cooking School, we have brought together 80 recipes for those who are interested in discovering the uniqueness of Beijing style cooking.
About the Author
Initially meant to satisfy the growing demand by both the teaching staff and its enthusiastic students at the cooking school, the founder, Su-Huei Huang published her first cookbook, "Chinese Cuisine" in 1972. With its instant success, the reception of "Chinese Cuisine" exceeded even the founder's own expectations. Since then, close to 50 additional Wei-Chuan cookbooks have been published and their titles covered various aspects of Chinese cuisine -- regional, specialties, garnishes, vegetarian to international cuisine - Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Thai and Mexican. These new publications will continue to reflect the founder's mission: "To share the simple delight and pleasure of cooking and eating."
Top Customer Reviews
Basically, the Wei-Chuan publications are authored/editored by several different persons but the format is largely the same. Each book is divided into logical sections (Meats, Vegetables, Appetizers, etc.) and nearly every recipe is accompanied by a good photograph of the result with some recipes having additional pictures of the preparation as well. This feature alone makes these books well worth the purchase. Another feature of this cuilinary series is that the books are written in China and, at least as far as the books on Chinese cuisine is concerned, the reader need have no issues with 'authenticity'. I personally also like the fact that all of the books are written in Chinese characters and then translated into English. This has has an added bonus of occasionally providing some unintentional amusement due to a particularly 'unfortunate' translation but I specially like it as I am teaching myself Mandarin and these books are excellent learning tools. I often take one on the plane with me when I travel (along with dictionaries) and can spend hours happily translating passages. It is amazing how often the actual translation of a recipe title bears little resemblance to the English title provided.Read more ›
