A Chinese Street Food Odyssey

Rating
100 modern and achievable recipes for classic Chinese street food This beautiful book offers a real insight into the street food cultures of China and vividly evokes the smells and sounds of the markets. It's the closest you may get to experiencing Beijing street food without actually being there, smelling the mix of aromatic spices, caramelized apples, barbecuing meats and steaming dumplings, with clouds of smoke and noisy bustle all around you, and red lanterns glowing above. Over 100 recipes and a wealth of stories and insight into cooking methods bring this cuisine to life. All recipes have been carefully chosen to be achievable for the western cook and avoid touristy cliches. This is real food that people actually want to eat and can cook themselves, without needing to source tricky ingredients. Helen and Lisa Tse have set out to encapsulate that sense of excitement, awe, wonder and hunger for these morsels of street food: from soft fluffy bao, to roasted meats, sesame peanut brittle and hot fried chicken. From piping hot bowls of noodles, to coal-roasted squid, delicate tea eggs and bubble tea, this is food to truly excite the appetite and awaken a sense of adventure in the kitchen. With a foreword from the master of Chinese cooking, Ken Hom, this is the essential book for the foodie bookshelf.

Helen and Lisa Tse became their family's third generation of restaurateurs when they opened Sweet Mandarin in Manchester in 2004.

Since launching their range of sauces, which are stocked worldwide, they have been invited to Downing Street, and were awarded MBEs in the 2014 New Year Honours List for services to the food and drink industry. They have published two cookbooks so far, Sweet Mandarin Cookbook and Dim Sum, and Helen is additionally the first ever British-born Chinese author, hailed as an up and coming literary talent for her memoir Sweet Mandarin which is distributed to 33 countries, listed as a Barnes and Noble Top 8 all time great reads and won her an honourary doctorate.
