Chinese Cooking Recipes

The secret of Chinese cooking lies in its preparation. Food is sliced, shredded, or cut according to certain predetermined rules. For very tender, almost velvety meat, the meat should be sliced along the grain; for a slightly crunchier texture, it should, ideally, be sliced against. Vegetables are often diagonally sliced both for aesthetic appeal and for a semblance of regularity.

Table-setting consists of chopsticks, a selection of bowls of different sizes (for rice, soup, meat dishes and so on) and a soup spoon, if soup is to be served. Napkins, as they are used in the West, are unknown. Instead, a hot, damp hand towel is handed to guests both before and during the meal. Also, in contrast to western custom, the pride of place traditionally reserved for the guest of honor is often as far away from the host as possible but always directly across from the doorway or opening through which the food will come.

The round-bottomed wok with small metal handles is rarely used in China any more, because most people now cook on flat burners, rather than the old-fashioned wood braziers. It is recommended that a flat-bottomed, 30-35cm / 12-14 inch diameter wok with ah single long handle. These can be safely used on gas, electric or ceramic hobs.

The traditionalist may choose an uncoated carbon steel pan, but nonstick woks are widely available, require less oil and do not need 'seasoning' before use. Just remember not to preheat a nonstick wok when it is empty. You must add oil or some kind of liquid before heating to avoid damaging the nonstick surface.
