Product Details


“Hsiao-Ching Chou delves into the heart of Chinese cooking, understanding its power to provide sustenance and comfort.”
—Grace Young, James Beard Award-winning author of Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge

“I love this book. It’s a warm invitation to home cooks to get comfortable with Chinese home cooking through stir-frying, braising, and steaming–and with easily available Chinese ingredients.”
—Naomi Duguid, author of Taste of Persia: A Cook’s Travels Through Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, and Kurdistan and Burma: Rivers of Flavor

“…when I thumb through this book I want to make everything–it sounds so good and so comforting.”
—Deborah Madison, author of In My Kitchen and Vegetable Literacy

“Soulful. Smart. And hunger inducing. This is the sort of food you eat if you’re lucky enough to have a Chinese grandmother cook for you.”  
—Steven Raichlen, author of the Barbecue Bible cookbook series and host of Project Smoke on PBS

“I made the mistake of reading Chinese Soul Food before making dinner. I got so hungry reading over such appetite-inducing recipes as Baby Bok Choy with Chicken and Spicy Clams with Chinese Sausage that I simply had to run to the store to buy the ingredients. Dinner was a little later than usual but oh-so satisfying, and the recipes were simple and quick to make.”
—Bruce Aidells, author of The Great Meat Cookbook
