9780794607548: Chinese Feasts & Festivals: A Cookbook

Chinese food has claimed a permanent place at the American table, but less is known about Chinese cuisine's more formal aspects. Chinese Feasts & Festivals brilliantly addresses this gap in a gorgeous, full-color Chinese cookbook.

It is often said that the Chinese live to eat. Happily, the Chinese calendar is bursting with joyous occasions and numerous festivals that call for eating, entertaining, and making merry, as well as for paying homage to the gods and ancestors. As a result, the foods served at these times are a combination of flavors and symbols intended to invoke wealth, happiness, luck, and prosperity—and eating them is both an earthly pleasure and a spiritual celebration.

Divided into two sections, respectively detailing feasts and festivals, Chinese Feasts & Festivals explains the significance of each dish and shares a delicious recipe for its preparation. author and illustrator S. C. Moey documents the multitude of dishes served at a traditional Chinese feast, as well as the specialties prepared to celebrate the year's most important festivals, including the Dragon Boat Festival, the Mooncake Festival and, of course, Chinese New Year. Lovers of Chinese cuisine and cookbooks will enjoy reading this delightful, beautifully illustrated volume—and be inspired to create a feast that will dazzle both mortals and gods. This book contains over 50 chinese recipes, including:

  • Drunken Chicken
  • Five Spice Rolls
  • Yangzhou Fried Rice
  • Chinese Hot Pot
  • Sweet Red Bean Pancakes
  • New Year's Cakes

Review :

"If you have children whom you are interested in getting acquainted with traditional Chinese culture this is a great book for them on a visual level as the illustrations could work just as well for a children's book. My little girl has burrowed her way through the whole cookbook, just looking and exclaiming at the colorful illustrations! The recipes themselves are selected for feast type of Chinese dinners, with special sections on Chinese festival foods for Dragon Boat Festival, Hungry Ghost Festival, Mid Autumn Festival, Winter Solstice Festival and the Chinese New Year." —The Hong Kong Cookery blog

"This is a cookbook that is divided into two sections, covering feasts and festivals. It also explains the significance of each dish and a delicious recipe for its preparation. There are 57 delicious recipes in this book and is very unique." —ET Speaks from Home blog

"A stunning book." —Star Tribune

"The cover and pastel prints superficially belong to a children's book, yet the contents are anything but—with many authentic holiday recipes we've longed to source." ̬Globe Trotting Gourmet blog

"Chinese Feasts & Festivals deserves a place on the bookshelf for anyone who appreciates Chinese culture, and, of course, cuisine." —The Star

"Charming drawings and detailed narrative explain the Chinese holidays and festivals like New Year, Dragon Boat Festival, Hungry Ghost Festival, Mooncake Festival, and the Winter Solstice Festival. Specialty foods to accompany the celebrations include recipes for dishes like Spicy Sichuan Lamb, Braised Longevity Noodles, Lotus Seed Mooncakes, and Sweet Red Bean Pancakes." —Edible East Bay magazine

"History, folklore and tradition are side by side with a delightful collection of authentic Chinese dishes." —Sandra's Kitchen Nook blog

"[...] Chinese Feasts & Festivals, a fantastic book that truly embeds a love and respect of Chinese traditional culture! [hellip;] A great cookbook which introduces authentic Chinese food, not commonly found elsewhere, even those so-called Chinese restaurants in the United States." —YZenith blog
