Chinese Cooking – A guide to Cooking Chinese style
The first thing that impressed me with Chinese cooking, and kitchens (!) in China, was the simplicity. Not least in the way that many, perhaps most, homes, families, cooks and chefs (!) are able to produce the most magnificent of dishes using only the most basic and spartan of kitchens and utensils.
Chinese kitchen versus western kitchen – ‘One ring to rule the mall’!
I find that many kitchens in China have just ‘one ring’ – one electric ceramic hob plate, a chopping board, and a cleaver (referred to as a knife in China) and as a result meals are often much quicker to prepare because there’s less to deal with.
Naturally there’ll also be a strainer, a few pots and pans, often one large ‘wok’ style pan for stir frying, and of course dishes, bowls cups and naturally, kuai zi -(pronounced ‘kwai tzer) – chopsticks!
Literally, in most cases, and indeed as in my first (quite nicely) furnished apartment in China – that’s all! Don’t believe me?

To point out an interesting aside from a health point of view is that in my experience, I eat a lot less meat than I ever did in the west.— ChinaBazzar
I think this is quite true of Chinese diet generally. On many evening meals we will have brown rice with quinoa and fresh vegetables.. healthy enough!
