Description:

"Lessons in Chinese cookery in Tokyo conducted by American nuns may seem a little farfetched, but there's a good reason for it . . . " These recipes are illustrated by M. Kuwata (the anthropomorphized asparagus spears for "Asparagus Peking Style" are particularly amusing), and each is given its title in English, transliterated Chinese, and Chinese characters. The dessert section notes that as Westerners tend not to enjoy traditional Chinese sweets, the authors have concocted treats that are compatible with Chinese meals, in one instance making use of a traditional Russian dessert. A number of pages offer short proverbs or sayings, at foot, in English and in Chinese characters. This is an early printing, following the first of 1956. 8vo (18.2 cm, 7.2"). xi, [1], 94, [6] pp.; illus. Publisher's spiral-bound wrappers; moderately dust-soiled, front wrapper creased. Pages with a few scattered spots, overall clean. An intriguing modern => culinary crossroad. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Art of Chinese Cooking, first published in 1956 and with many subsequent reprintings (and revised and updated in this new edition), is an easy-to-use introduction to the basics of Chinese cooking. With just a handful of commonly available ingredients and by following the simple, step-by-step instructions, anyone can create wonderfully tasty dishes in a matter of minutes. (Also available as a kindle ebook, search ASIN B00UMP0NDC).But first, by way of history, visualize a long, narrow room, one end a demonstration kitchen, the other end with chairs for students. At the stove stand two smiling-faced nuns, clad in voluminous white aprons over flowing black robes. Their own obvious enjoyment in their task, as they stir and taste and answer questions, enhances the gay atmosphere, and from the stove exotic odors waft across the room.These two delightful and courageous American women came to Japan from a war-ravaged China with little else than their skill in Chinese cooking. To earn their living they started to teach, and as their celestial cuisine won fame in the city of Tokyo they could not keep up with the demand. For the benefit of those who were unable to attend their classes, they have written THE ART OF CHINESE COOKING, which describes the tempting variety of Chinese cooking in concise, easy-to-follow style. Here are their secrets. Use them-and good eating!. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781508797623
