Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook

So how does all of this coincide with LitUpLit? Can a cookbook really count as literature? I believe it can. A volume such as this, certainly!

Bley Miller makes a strong case for the food of China from the start. She talks about the economy, nutrition, history, regional variations, techniques, and I could go on. The recipes solidly stand as examples of each. Most everything in this 900 page tome can be made from ingredients readily available in a standard American grocery. 

Yes, I actually read this cover to cover. Twice. I found it to be informative, enlightening, and inspiring. Highly recommended!
