These are dishes that feed the belly and speak the universal language of "mmm!"
In Chinese Soul Food, you'll find:
- 80 approachable recipes for homestyle Chinese dishes
- Essential tips for Chinese cooking, including wok care, rice preparation, and more
- Basic Chinese pantry staples, plus acceptable substitutions for busy cooks
Recipes include:

- Dry-fried green beans
- Braised beef noodle soup

- Garlic eggplant
- Hsiao-Ching Chou's famous potstickers
- And much more!
Recipes are streamlined to minimize the fear factor of unfamiliar ingredients and techniques, and home cooks are gently guided toward becoming comfortable cooking satisfying Chinese meals.
