Fuchsia Dunlop is the author of the much-loved and critically acclaimed Sichuanese cookbook "Land of Plenty," which won the British Guild of Food Writers Jeremy Round Award for best first book and which critic John Thorne called a seminal exploration of one of China s great regional cuisines. Now, with "Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook," she introduces us to the delicious tastes of Hunan, Chairman Mao s home province. Hunan is renowned for the fiery spirit of its people, its beautiful scenery, and its hearty peasant cooking. In a selection of classic recipes interwoven with a wealth of history, legend, and anecdote, Dunlop brings to life this vibrant culinary region. Look for late imperial recipes like Numbing-and-Hot Chicken, Chairman Mao s favorite Red-Braised Pork, soothing stews, and a myriad of colorful vegetable stir-fries."

Customer Reviews

This is a wonderfully engaging cookbook, with lots of history and anecdotes from Dunlop's travels in the region. I brought this book as I was blown away by her first and third book - naturally made sense to buy her second book. Unfortunatly I am not so pleased with the foods of the Hunan Province - lots of deep fried, salty, and smoked dishes. Whilst I am happy with these in moderation, I dont think I will be doing as much coooking from this book.
