    There is no such thing as chinese cuisine, the country is so large with so many people that region to region the food is as different from each other as Russian and French cuisine. There is no doubt that chinese food has had the biggest impact in the world and obviously is awesome.

    @otahg yeah the traditional stuff or more peasant type food is great, doesn’t have to be the snoby bs added to it.

    It is a real pity though. Chinese cuisine was truely legendary. But Maoist takeover really killed wonderful traditions. Sure food in China is pretty okay, but if there was no Mao, the food there would exceed nearly all other cuisines. During the Maoist takeover most good chefs, and basically all good whatevers, fled either overseas, taiwan, or hong kong.

    This clip only shows tiny faction of what Chinese Cooking is. IMO, I would say this book is really more like introduction than mastering Chinese cooking.

    That quote from …
    That quote from James Beard is a stupid soundbite and an insult. Chinese food has been evolving all the time just the same as Indian food, thai, italian, Indonesian, Spanish even English. If you want great food then take a country like Suriname. It is a true melting pot with great ingredients. You can not make a silk purse from a pigs ear. True diversity comes from cultures mixing together. That is Chinese food.

    ehh-hemmm… attn James Beard: it’s the italians and the chinese; leave french for the snobs and the culinary academians.

    I have two of her books: they are priceless
