Summary

Summary

Dishes from the four corners of China are found in Taiwanese kitchens and restaurants: noodles, dumplings and Mongolian Lamb Barbecue from northern China; sauces and herbs from the east are featured in recipes like Piquant Lime Chicken in Swallow's Nest; hot spicy, fried foods from southern China such as lightly seasoned fresh seafood. This collection of over 100 delicious Taiwanese recipes is divided into seasons and traditional celebrations such as Lunar New Year, Dragon Boat Festival, Chinese Valentine's Day, and Mid-Autumn Moon Festival -- with a complete menu for each one. Complementary and harmonious foods are organised in 18 carefully planned menus. Also includes cultural information, Chinese paper cuttings, and a Chinese lunar zodiac calendar.
