I thus draw your attention to the Dan Dan Mean; the most fabulous dumplings; Golden Shrimp Roe Noodles; Ants Climbing a Tree Noodles; Chicken Congee; some incredible sauces, namely Lazy XO Sauce, Hunan Salted Chilli, and Chilli Oil; Yunnan Mashed Potato, alive with garlic, chilli and pickled greens; the divine Creamy Tofu Noodles with Soy-Vinegar Dressing; Fiery Sichuan Fondue, which takes the form of a cheese fondue made with lager rather than wine, and a generous amount of chilli oil (and you can use Lao Gan Ma); and the spectacular Uighur ‘Big Plate’ Chicken with Hand-Pulled Noodles.

Rosheen Kaul is head chef at Melbourne’s Etta restaurant, where she cooks a menu as culturally diverse as she is. As immigrants with Chinese heritage who both moved to Australia as children, Rosheen Kaul and Joanna Hu spent their formative years living between (at least) two cultures and wondering how they fitted in. Hu's watercolor illustrations play so nicely with the vivid photography throughout and the recipes are remarkably accessible. This unique and beautifully illustrated cookbook offers a combination of cuisines spanning Southeast Asia that reflect the authors’ immigrant heritage … They also include anecdotes throughout the book to give readers insight into their lives and the meaning of the food they detail … Kaul and Hu have written an excellent introduction to Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisine, recommended for intermediate to advanced cooks.Rosheen Kaul was born in Singapore to a Kashmiri father, and her mother was born to Chinese Filipino parents but adopted at a young age by a Eurasian mother and Indonesian father. Whimsical illustrations, vulnerable storytelling, and easy-to-follow instructions support technique building.

However , like a few other reviewers when I got the book I didn’t enjoy the book and find the recipes complicated and the book difficult to follow. Chinese-ish celebrates the confident blending of culture and identity through food: take what you love and reject what doesn't work for you. Together, they've produced Chinese-ish, a cookbook pooling all the Chinese-inspired recipes that have come into their lives, which they describe as not quite authentic but 100 per cent delicious. In these pages you'll find a bounty of inauthentic Chinese-influenced dishes from all over Southeast Asia, including the best rice and noodle dishes, wontons and dumplings, classic Chinese mains and even a Sichuan Sausage Sanga that would sit proudly at any backyard barbecue.

Hu’s watercolor illustrations play so nicely with the vivid photography throughout and the recipes are remarkably accessible. A bunch of the stuff I knew how to make, having my very Chinese ancestors whispering in my ears, in a format my very white, very 'what's the recipe' husband can understand. Smacking the cucumber with the back of a knife or cleaver, or even a hammer, creates lovely nooks and crevices for the dressing to find its way into, resulting in a punchy, refreshing dish for those swelteringly hot days. And I’m desperate to try the Microwave Cheong Fun, those wonderful rice flour noodle rolls, which are especial favourites of mine.Joanna Hu was born in Hunan Province in China and, like her co-author, moved to Melbourne at school age.

The authors spend a lot of bandwidth explaining their merge-y ethnicities and how the recipes are merely Chinese- inspired so don’t come here looking for authenticity. I’ve chosen a recipe for you that seemed to me an excellent introduction to the food in this happy-making book: Burnt Spring Onion Oil Noodles, just perfect for when you need a simple but richly flavoured solo supper. Pour the oil into a large saucepan that can hold double its volume (as the oil will bubble up) and place over medium heat.Chinese-ish takes questions of culinary identity, tosses them up in the air, and lets them land where they may. My personal favourites include the Mango Pudding and all of the steamed dumpling recipes sound divine. You will need 1 tablespoon of this chilli paste (or sambal oelek, if using) for each portion of noodles.
