Overview
WINNER OF THE 2009 JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL COOKBOOK AWARD

WINNER OF THE 2009 IACP BEST INTERNATIONAL COOKBOOK AWARD

A bold and eye-opening new cookbook with magnificent photos and unforgettable stories.

In the West, when we think about food in China, what usually comes to mind are the signature dishes of Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai. But beyond the urbanized eastern third of China lie the high open spaces and sacred places of Tibet, the Silk Road oases of Xinjiang, the steppelands of Inner Mongolia, and the steeply terraced hills of Yunnan and Guizhou. The peoples who live in these regions are culturally distinct, with their own history and their own unique culinary traditions. In Beyond the Great Wall, the inimitable duo of Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid--who first met as young travelers in Tibet--bring home the enticing flavors of this other China.

For more than twenty-five years, both separately and together, Duguid and Alford have journeyed all over the outlying regions of China, sampling local home cooking and street food, making friends and taking lustrous photographs. Beyond the Great Wall shares the experience in a rich mosaic of recipes--from Central Asian cumin-scented kebabs and flatbreads to Tibetan stews and Mongolian hot pots--photos, and stories. A must-have for every food lover, and an inspiration for cooks and armchair travelers alike.

Champions of Chinese cuisine

Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid's cookbooks are in a class by themselves: the recipes are authentic, yet enticingly accessible; their photographs of the extraordinary places they travel to, the people they meet and the food they eat are beautiful; their research is extensive; and their stories evoke an exotic world most us can experience only in books. Beyond the Great Wall: Recipes and Travels in the Other China takes them back to China and Tibet, where they met and fell in love many years ago, to the regions that are home to the distinctive cultures and cuisines that lie beyond Central China. Jeffrey and Naomi travel, taste and savor: Dai Chile-Fish Soup with Flavored Oil made by a sarong-clad Dai cook in the mountainous, subtropical Southern Yunnan province; crunchy Beef-Sauced Hot Lettuce Salad in a small town on the vast inland plateau of Inner Mongolia; Pork and Spinach Stir-Fry and Tibetan honey-drizzled Rice Pudding in Lhasa; Chicken Pulao with Pumpkin fit for a Uighur feast in foothills of the Tian Shan Mountains. Their portrait of the "Other China" makes for great armchair travel. But this isn't armchair cooking, you really can make these recipes in your kitchen and take this fabulous culinary trip without packing a bag, or making a reservation.
