Dive into this feast of tasty facts about the food and cooking of China. Learn all about the climate, history, religion, and culture of China and how they have influenced the national cuisine. Read this book and discover:

  • dishes like chicken feet in black-bean sauce, bird’s nest soup, and “ants climbing trees”
  • Chinese table manners: burping is okay, but never point your chopsticks at anyone!
  • bamboo worms – a favorite snack of the Dai people

The book contains three recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions, so you can try cooking up some popular Chinese dishes for yourself. As they say in China, chi fan – eat!
