It all starts with Food! Here’s your starting point for Chinese Cooking

Chinese Cooking – A guide to Cooking Chinese style

The first thing that impressed me with Chinese culture was the cooking, and kitchens (!) in China, the simplicity, not least in the way that many homes, families, cooks and chefs (!) are able to produce the most magnificent of dishes utilising what seem to be the most basic and spartan kitchens, equipment and utensils.

Chinese kitchen versus western kitchen – ‘One ring to rule themall’!
(One Ring to Rule Them All)

Many kitchens in China have just ‘one ring’ – one electric ceramic hob plate, a chopping board, a cleaver (referred to as a knife in China) perhaps 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!
