After hearing Fuchsia Dunlop during interviews on some of my fave food podcasts, I had to check out her book. In the US, it can be easy to think of Chinese food as heavy or complex, not really the stuff of everyday home cooking. And that’s what I like about Fuchsia’s approach here: She reminds us that Chinese food is the epitome of everyday cooking. Simple dishes. Lots of vegetables. Great flavor. I’ve been enjoying reading through this and making some of the recipes. It’s great stuff. If you’ve wanted to demystify Chinese-style cooking for your own kitchen, Every Grain of Rice is a great place to start.
