Fuchsia Dunlop trained as a chef at China's leading cooking school and is internationally renowned for her delicious recipes and brilliant writing about Chinese food. Every Grain of Rice is inspired by the healthy and vibrant home cooking of southern China, in which meat and fish are enjoyed in moderation, but vegetables play the starring role. Try your hand at blanched choy sum with sizzling oil, Hangzhou broad beans with ham, pock-marked old woman's beancurd or steamed chicken with shiitake mushrooms, or, if you've ever in need of a quick fix, Fuchsia's emergency late-night noodles. Many of the recipes require few ingredients and are startlingly easy to make. The book includes a comprehensive introduction to the key seasonings and techniques of the Chinese kitchen, as well as the 'magic ingredients' that can transform modest vegetarian ingredients into wonderful delicacies. With stunning photography and clear instructions, this is an essential volume for beginners and connoisseurs alike.

Every Grain has a Name

The only other thing that I remembered was a bowl of rice, two chopsticks and a single grain of rice in the bowl. During the dream, the purpose of this image had been quite clear, but now nothing else came to mind.

Do you believe that there is an ‘objective,’ measurable Universe out there existing independent of you? Or is this world more a creation of your mind and consciousness? Are you truly manifesting this reality that you are experiencing? What is your purpose in this life? This book questions the mechanist, materialistic and individualistic viewpoint dominant today and presents a radically different approach to life. There is an ancient Indian proverb– “On every grain of food is written the name of the person who will eat it.” The purpose of the grain is set well in advance, not by its own personal name, but by the name of the person who will consume it! Unluckily, our names segregate us from our environment as individuals by building our ego, and do not have our true purpose of existence embedded in them. What if we are in a purposeful Universe, where our purpose has been set well in advance, waiting to be discovered by us? This book will raise your level of trust in, and acceptance of, the larger forces of the Universe. It will help you develop the courage to break away from your past conditioning and comfort zones, guiding you through a step-by-step process to enable you to live life to its fullest potential!

Daughter of Heaven

There, he needed to be admonished only once by Dashao, Nai-nai's cook at the time, to eat all his rice, if nothing else, “because every grain of rice in your bowl is a drop of sweat from a poor peasant's brow.

In this powerful, touching memoir of a critically acclaimed Chinese-American writer, taste becomes the keeper of memory and food the keeper of culture when Nai-nai, her extraordinary grandmother, arrives from mainland China. Leslie Li’s paternal grandfather, Li Zogren, was China’s first democratically elected vice president, to whom Chiang Kai-shek left control of the country when he fled to Formosa in 1949. Nine years later, Li’s wife, Nai-nai, comes to live with her son’s family in New York City, bringing a whole new world of sights, smells, and tastes as she quickly takes control of the kitchen. Nai-nai’s tantalizingly exotic cooking opens up the heart and mind of her American granddaughter to her Chinese heritage—and to the world. Through her grandmother’s traditional cuisine Leslie bridges the cultural divide in an America in which she is a minority—as well as the growing gap at home between her rigid, traditional Chinese father and her progressive American-born mother. Interspersed throughout her intimate and moving memoir are the author’s personal recipes, most from Nai-nai’s kitchen, that add a delicious dimension to the work. A loving ode to family and food, Daughter of Heaven is an exquisite blend of memory, history, and the senses.
