All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China by Carolyn Phillips Review




A comprehensive, contemporary portrait of China's culinary landscape and the geography and history that has shaped it, with more than 300 recipes.

Vaulting from ancient taverns near the Yangtze River to banquet halls in modern Taipei,All Under Heaven is the first cookbook in English to examine all 35 cuisines of China. Drawing on centuries' worth of culinary texts, as well as her own years working, eating, and cooking in Taiwan, Carolyn Phillips has written a spirited, symphonic love letter to the flavors and textures of Chinese cuisine. With hundreds of recipes--from simple Fried Green Onion Noodles to Lotus-Wrapped Spicy Rice Crumb Pork--written with clear, step-by-step instructions, All Under Heaven serves as both a handbook for the novice and a source of inspiration for the veteran chef.

You can purchase this book on Amazon.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  This is so much more than just a cookbook, it is literally filled with all kinds of great recipes, instructions and knowledge that will help any cook to create cuisine.   Even though I was able to read through it quickly, it will still need to be re read several times because there is so much to learn.  Everything from the cover to the easy to understand directions makes this book a must have.
