Product Details


“[A] magisterial new book.”
New York Times

“[A] beautiful and meticulous volume that examines the techniques one by one–stir-frying, deep-frying, saucing, braising. The recipes travel the gamut from familiar (mapo tofu) to startling (pig’s skin and bean aspic), offering something for both the student and the adventurer in your kitchen.”
—T. Susan Chang,, one of “2015’s Great Reads”

“If you’ve wanted to cook authentic Chinese food but have felt a little put off by unfamiliar ingredients or techniques, then run, don’t walk, to buy this book.”
Fine Cooking

“Red Cook blogger Kian Lam Kho focuses on basic techniques—flash-poaching, deep-frying, hang-roasting—in his first cookbook, a compendium of specialties from throughout China. Organizing recipes by technique, he shows how to master dishes from the simple (cucumber salad) to the complex (yin-yang fried tofu-skin rolls).”
Food & Wine

“This extraordinary collection is a must-have for anyone interested in Chinese cuisine.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[A] gorgeous trove; if you owned it, you’d feel as though you’d never need another Chinese cookbook for your entire culinary life.”
Seattle Weekly

“An attractive, knowledgeable yet accessible guide to cooking Chinese food, focusing on techniques from stir-frying to smoking. Kho clearly explains the differences in regional cuisines, reviews crucial cooking tools and skillfully guides Western readers through essential ingredients and dishes.”
Seattle Times
