Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking
After the critical praise lavished pf her first two books it was with some anticipation that that her pan-Chinese book was greeted. Mar 15, Johan rated it it was amazing. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The only caveat I have is that you WILL have trouble sourcing many of the ingredients if you are not lucky enough to live, as I do, in a community with a large Asian grocery store.
I definitely see lots of familiar Chinese home cooking dishes – the kinds of cold appetizers, side dishes, etc. 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.

Even a pictorial glossary of ingredients to help shopping. Books by Fuchsia Dunlop. And so my Chinese cookbooks have sat on my shelf, unused, for decades literally.
Otherwise a tremendous introduction riice Sichuan cooking! Most of the dishes in this book only use a handful of ingredients and don’t take too long to make, but they taste good. Fuchsia Dunlop is a cook and food-writer specialising in Chinese cuisine. None were even close to this book.
For the most part, access to a good oriental market is essential for these recipes, even if only for the occasional stocking up on store-cupboard ingredients. Lack of TV tie-ins, however, photogenicness? Dunlop does her dumlop 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.

It took me one lf to decide to buy it. Authentic and easy to tell the author lived in China and studied Chinese cooking. Her Sichuan cookbook is a close second, but with fewer photos it’s perhaps not as fuchsiia to less experienced cooks.

Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be able to find the right ingredients for most of the recipes. Having now stocked up my kitchen with a few basics, and rie several recipes from this book I’m very happy with it.
But focusing on one or two regions that are very similar? The recipes are delicious. Many of the recipes require few ingredients and are startlingly easy to make.
I suspect that other Chinese cookbooks have put me off because, even if they’re not as exhaustive as Gabriel’s book on Thailand, they include dishes and ingredients from all across the country. I’ve always been wary of Chinese cooking after ending up with dishes that don’t really resemble the textures or flavours of food I’ve had in more authentic restaurants. The recipe for sizzling greens is alone worth the purchase price.
I have all three of her cookbooks, and I love them all, but if I was going to give just one to a friend it would be this one.
