    Fry Live Carp?, April 26, 2012

    This review is from: Authentic Chinese Homestyle Recipes (Kindle Edition)

    Ming Liu’s Fast, Easy, & Delicious Chinese Homestyle Recipes Vol. 1 contains 15 recipes for various Chinese dishes, each accompanied by a photo. Grandma loves Chinese food, cooks it frequently and has a fair stash of specialty ingredients on hand. None the less, Grandma would have to make a special trip to Boston to find some of the things called for in these recipes:

    Dried Bean Curd
    Sweet Soybean Paste
    Hot Bean Paste
    Cantonese Pickle
    Black Wood Ear
    yu-tiau
    sweet fermented rice
    black mushrooms
    preserved mustard

    Grandma also found a few things that need a bit more explanation:

    five space pack (Grandma thinks the author means 5 Spice Powder put up in one-use packets.)
    crystal sugar (Granulated or the big crystal kind you sprinkle on cookies?)
    shredded pickle mustard (Grandma thinks the author means mustard pickle – add to Boston list)
    Green garlic (Grandma thinks the author means fresh garlic but isn’t sure)
    pork skin – not generally available in the US except as it may come on a fresh ham or pork shoulder

    Carp with Spicy Bean Sauce, which sounds pretty good, calls for “1 carp or other live fish.” Beyond the fact that it is almost impossible to buy a live fish in most of the US, Grandma doesn’t want a live carp swimming in her bathtub. She hopes the author meant “fresh” because there is no mention of what to do with the live carp other than rinsing it, patting it dry and scoring it on both sides. Then you fry it.

    Recipes are a mixed bag of standard and metric measurements. You will need a scale and a couple of pieces of special equipment, notably a bamboo steamer. There is a very nice Table of Contents, though it unfortunately does not interface with the Kindle Navigation Menu

    Your call.

    Not American style “Chinese” Take-Out!, July 6, 2012

    I enjoyed this little cookbook very much. I like that it claims to be traditional Chinese and it is. It is not American Chinese Take-Out which is what most Amercans think is real Chinese food. There are only 15 recipes in this little e-book, I would have liked more, but since it was a freebie I can’t complain.

    First of all, I’d like to point out that yes, a traditional Chinese Cookbook is going to require that you obtain traditional Chinese ingredients. Wow, imagine that? If you don’t live near an Asian market most things can be ordered online. If you don’t want to order online, most experienced cooks should easily be able to do a little research and come up with suitable substitutions for a lot of ingredients. If that’s all too much trouble for you, stick to cooking dishes that are native to where you are located. That way you can be assured that it won’t be such a bother for you to obtain the ingredients. Don’t blame the cookbook author.

    For those who cannot comprehend how you could cook a live fish you might find this information educational. Live fish fry is a traditional Chinese dish. Don’t believe me? Its easy enough to verify, just check out U-Tube for video documentation (if the link doesn’t work just search “Chinese Live Fish Fry” and you should find several videos of this traditional dish). […]

    Green garlic can be found in season at most farmer’s markets and can also be easily grown at home. I have even purchased it a Whole Foods markets in season. If you aren’t familiar with green garlic, google it to learn more. […]

    Note: You may want to purchase a small kitchen scale if you don’t already own one. Anyone who is even halfway serious about cooking should own a scale anyway. They’re not that expensive and you can pick one up in most grocery stores or order one online at Amazon. I have a couple of scales but the one I use most often is the OXO with the pull out display ~ they have it here on Amazon but I actually picked it up much cheaper at my local grocery store http://www.amazon.com/Grips-5-Pound-Black-Pull-Out-Display/dp/B0020L6T7K/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1341585838&sr=1-2&keywords=oxo+kitchen+scale
