Chinese Recipes


Chinese meals are generally based around two main elements: firstly, a starchy "main food" (Mandarin Chinese: Zhushi) dish such as noodles, rice or steamed buns ("mantou"), and secondly, accompanying meat, seafood or vegetables (Mandarin Chinese: Cŕi).

Chinese meals

It would wrong however to think of China as simply being home to a single cuisine. Each region of the country has developed its uniquely culinary style, and additionally overseas Chinese communities around the world have both adapted traditional Chinese dishes, and developed entirely new dishes.

Some popular Chinese dishes include:
  • Baozi (xiaolongbao) - Steamed buns usually containing meat soup (sometimes seafood or vegetables may be used instead). The buns are initially prepared using a meat gelatin filling, but when the bun is steamed, this melts and becomes soup.

  • Congee - A porridge, usually made from rice, although sometimes barley, cornmeal, millet or sorghum may be used instead.

    Baozi

  • Guotie - Fried dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • Jiaozi - Steamed dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • Shuijiao - Boiled dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • General Tso's chicken - Deep-fried chicken in a sweet-spicy sauce. This dish is very popular in Canada and the US, but is virtually unknown in China.

  • Kung Po chicken - Chicken cooked with Sichuan peppercorns, Shaoxing wine, and nuts (peanuts or cashew nuts). In Western countries, the dish has been adapted to local tastes and ingredients (for example, by using bell peppers), and additionally other meats, or seafood, may be used instead of chicken.

    Kung Po chicken (Westernized version)

  • Mantou - A steamed bun. One of the staple dishes of North China.

  • Peking duck - Originally from Beijing (which used to be known as "Peking"), Peking duck is one of the most famous Chinese dishes. A duck is glazed with a syrup and roasted, it is then carved in front of diners, and eaten by wrapping the duck meat, with scallions or cucumber, and plum sauce, into small steamed pancakes (Mandarin Chinese: pinyin). In the UK, the duck is generally prepared using more spices, fried instead of roasted, and known as "cripsy aromatic duck".

  • Soy egg - A hard-boiled egg in soy sauce, sugar and water, flavored with herbs and spices.

  • Tea egg - A hard-boiled egg, soaked or stewed in tea.

  • Zhajiang mian - Thick wehat noodles with ground pork, stired-fried with fermented soybean paste.


  • Zongzi - Bamboo leaves filled with glutinous rice and other fillings. Zongzi are boiled or steam before eating.

Product Description:
Fried rice is an awesome dish no matter what age you are and what you like to add to it. I think it can be as salty or sweet as you like it. It can be spicy or very subtlety prepared with diversified seasonings and herbs. It can also be filled with meats or simply vegetarian. Fried rice can be made with brown rice, white rice, basmati rice, sticky rice, or whatever rice you would prefer to use, because after all, you and your family are the ones eating it!

Many of us have been introduced to fried rice at restaurants, perhaps Chinese, Thai, or Japanese styled, and we continue to embrace this dish at home, trying to copy their successful recipe. However, there's nothing wrong with thinking outside the box and creating an unique fried rice recipe, we do it all the time!

Let's continue on our fried rice culinary adventure, by turning the page and discovering more of this incredible cookbook!

Product Description:

Enjoy Simple, Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Chinese Dishes with The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook

Chinese food is a favorite among many American families. But its harmonious fusion of sweet spice and tangy heat doesn’t have to go hand-in-hand with overly sugary sauces, extra salt, greasy meats, or undesired MSG.

When Charmaine Ferrara moved from Malaysia to America more than 15 years ago, she was struck by the difference between the American adaptation of Chinese food and the traditional Chinese fare she’d grown up on. Charmaine began experimenting with her wok, recalling how her mother and grandmother made dishes, to recreate the meals she was missing. Since then, she’s devoted herself to showing others how simple it is to create delicious Chinese recipes the way they were intended―fresh, flavorful, and light―and in her first Chinese cookbook, Charmaine does exactly that.

In The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook Charmaine has combined the flavors of her heritage with her passion and know-how. The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook makes it easy to enjoy healthy takes on classic Chinese food at home. From steaming to stir-fry, this Chinese cookbook will help you harness the simple power of your versatile wok to make more than 85 healthy, tasty dishes.

With The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook you will:

  • Quickly learn to make meals that swap out heavily battered ingredients and saturated fats for flavorful meats, fresh vegetables, and heart healthy oils
  • Enjoy the easy organization of chapters that follow the structure of a Chinese restaurant menu
  • Discover tips for buying and maintaining your wok so you can use it for years to come
  • Master a variety of techniques for cooking and stir-frying your favorite dishes

If you’re looking for a Chinese cookbook that offers healthy recipes with restaurant-quality taste, look no further than The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook.
