Read Land of Fish and Rice Online Free - The lower Yangtze region, or Jiangnan, with its modern capital Shanghai, has been known since ancient times as a “land of fish and rice.” For centuries, local cooks have harvested the bounty of its lakes, rivers, fields, and mountains to create a cuisine renowned for its delicacy and beauty. In Land of Fish and Rice, Fuchsia Dunlop draws on years of study and exploration to present the recipes, techniques, and ingredients of the Jiangnan kitchen. You will be inspired to try classic dishes such as Beggar’s Chicken and sumptuous Dongpo Pork, as well as fresh, simple recipes such as Clear-Steamed Sea Bass and Fresh Soybeans with Pickled Greens. Evocatively written and featuring stunning recipe photography, this is an important new work celebrating one of China’s most fascinating culinary regions.

One of the best writers about Chinese Food. This one features the cooking of the Jiangnan region, which includes Shanghai where my family hails from. I appreciate her writing because she doesn't try and dumb down the food for Western readers, and alerts you when she deviates from the original rec...

This is embarrassing for me to admit, but I think it's a real problem that people need to be aware of before they purchase this book: The type is tiny.

This is a beautiful cookbook. Stories and recipes from this region of China. I made a few of the recipes and they were not too hard and delicious. I seem to enjoy the food more when I know about the culture of the people and the land.

I got this book at Washburn today when the author did a day long event culminating in a cooking demonstration which was the portion I was able to attend. The photographs are beautiful, in color, and the cultural information is fascinating. I'm so excited to learn from this cookbook.

This is a lovely book, researched and photographed with exacting detail. It is, for me, and aspirational cookbook. I wish I ate this cool, pleasant palate of simple plates. But alas, this isn't my kind of home cooking, so I won't be turning to it for recipes.
