Every grain of rice recipes
Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking by Fuchsia DunlopFuchsia Dunlop trained as a chef in China’s leading Sichuan cooking school and possesses the rare ability to write recipes for authentic Chinese food that you can make at home. Following her two seminal volumes on Sichuan and Hunan cooking, Every Grain of Rice is inspired by the vibrant everyday cooking of southern China, in which vegetables play the starring role, with small portions of meat and fish.
Try your hand at stir-fried potato slivers with chili pepper, vegetarian Gong Bao Chicken, sour-and-hot mushroom soup, or, if you’re ever in need of a quick fix, Fuchsia’s emergency late-night noodles. Many of the recipes require few ingredients and are ridiculously easy to make. Fuchsia also includes a comprehensive introduction to the key seasonings and techniques of the Chinese kitchen. With stunning photography and clear instructions, this is an essential cookbook for everyone, beginner and connoisseur alike, eager to introduce Chinese dishes into their daily cooking repertoire.

Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking
Chapter books, of course. I hope you enjoy it! Although not ethnically Chinese, Fuchsia certainly knows the ins and outs of Chinese cooking better than most. Every Grain of Rice is a solid cookbook. Every recipe has a lengthy headnote, often describing the history or cultural importance of the dish, as well as the flavor and any adaptations you can make. Almost every recipe also has a beautiful, clean, full-page photograph to go with it. The photographic style is simple and bright, perfectly reflecting the food it depicts.
Simple as it is, this is a satisfying dish to eat even with only a very limited amount of accompaniments, such as some chopped pickles, or just a tablespoon or two of soy sauce. Slice and coarsely chop the onion. Break the eggs into a cup, add the salt and beat with a fork for 10 seconds. Clean and cut the spring onions into fine shavings. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok.

Susan Chang Leave a comment. I wondered if a vegetarian version could hit the spot the same way. And I thought portobellos, the meatiest mushrooms, were probably a pretty good bet as a protein substitute. You will again find me sucking the chiles afterward.
