So while this is a highest-priority Wish List item, I’m not sure that it’s a book that I’ll cook from very often just because of the intimidation factor.

Delicious recipes, great tips, many different styles of Chinese cuisine and beautiful photos to show me what my dishes were supposed to look like This is my already grainn cookbook, and I’ve made only a small share of the recipes in the book.

I’m not sure that I’ve ever done that with a cookbook before. Yes the recipes in this book are often quite simple but that was not a bad thing in my view as it helped me move past the idea that authentic flavours demand complex recipes. Every Grain of Rice is inspired by the healthy and vibrant home fuchxia of southern China, in which meat and fish are enjoyed in moderation, but vegetables play the starring role.

If it only has a few useful recipes I just copy them and return the book. This is such a great, useful book. With stunning photography and clear instructions, this is an essential cookbook for everyone, beginner and connoisseur alike, eager to introduce Chinese dishes into their daily cooking repertoire. All in all, just the remedy my collection needed! Return to Book Page.

Mar 19, Lindsey Duncan rated it really liked it Shelves: The recipe for sizzling greens is alone worth the purchase price. Colour Illustrations throughout Dimensions: It’s a great introduction Dunlop’s first love, if I can be so bold to claim, is Sichuanese cuisine, and the recipes in this cookbook have a fair bit of overlap with her excellent Sichuan cookbook, but there’s also enough new dishes to keep it interesting.

Norton Company first published Dunlop does her best to offer substitutes, but there are still many places in the world where bok choi is impossible, and even a ok soy sauce is tricky. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It’s an educational and entertaining cookbook.

Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking by Fuchsia Dunlop

And, frankly, it should be — Gabriel includes recipes from each region of Thailand and, as those of you familiar with the regionality of Thai food know, those regions use very different ingredients, spices and cooking methods. This book hits those memories perfectly.

That’s a big ingredient list.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I also have another issue, recipes are not included in the table of contents which makes them difficult to find.


Most of the dishes in this book only fuhsia a handful of ingredients and don’t take too long to make, but they taste good.

This is the other cookbook that I read, literally, from cover to cover. Recipes are very simple and good for weeknight cooking. But focusing on one or two regions that are very similar? She ebery A fantastic look into Chinese cooking. No trivia or quizzes yet. Jun 17, Frederick rated it it was amazing.

I live in a North American city with a huge Chinese influence and have grown up eating not just old fashioned, westernized dishes like rlce mein and fried rice but more “authentic” dishes like duck eggs and evegy cooked in earthen pots and gratuitous amounts of congee. However, not only though does it provide the recipes, it lists the tools, cutting styles and even basic stock recipes to keep a full Chinese kitchen in your house.

Overall, this is to be heartily recommended to anyone interested in cooking more Chinese food, regardless of their experience although it’s perhaps not for the completely novice cookand it fully deserves to break Fuchsia Dunlop into the mainstream consciousness.

A knowledgeable, inviting and passionate book of Chinese cuisine, this tome offers recipes from the simplest to the more complex, and explains the context both historical and specific for each. The visuals are very helpful, esp for learning or reviewing the variety of cuts or ingredient reference. Really excellent and works in practice.
