Fine Traditional Chinese Cooking

  • Jan 1, 2013
A Chinese Salt Free Diet Cookbook by Merle Schell is an important
food preparation acquisition which covers the essential elements
of recipes throughout China. The author describes fully specialties
like Yunnan Curried Mushrooms, Pork Balls in Hot Sauce, Bean
Curd Shrimp Puffs and Sherry Vinegar Baby Spare Ribs.

Schell provides important information on traditional accents employed
in the Chinese food preparation. For instance, garlic and ginger are
important herbs used to make the food more palatable. Orange rings
are used to spice up Braised Pork. In addition, ginger root is employed
as an anti-inflammatory health tonic for the traditional Fish Salad.

The author spends some time describing the landscape of China.
For instance, there is only 10% arable land east of the Yangtze
River. In addition, there have been historic floods along rivers;
such as, the Huang He and Chang Jiang River. This weatherization
has an important impact on the local farming, as well as the
food preparation.

Schell also provides examples of foods that cool the body.
For instance, Beef  Oyster and Cucumber Soup is a popular
preparation for dieters. Szechuan Vegetable Salad is another
popular preparation for people interested in foods that
cool the body, as well as preparations with a higher pH value.

Schell describes the historic Shanghai region which is noted
for some of the finer Chinese teas and silk in the world. What
would a visit to a Chinese restaurant be without dumplings?
The author provides just about every dumpling preparation
imaginable including the unusual Egg Dumplings.

A Chinese Salt Free Diet Cookbook by Merle Schell is an
important cookbook for chefs everywhere. The presentation
has a very complete rendition of Chinese cooking with a
smattering of preparations from virtually every important
region of China. There are important dinner preparations
available; such as, Salmon and Zucchini with Soy.
