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.
