About Chinese Food and Cooking

Chinese recipes are simple and delicious, making them an excellent choice for those nights when your family is in a hurry but still wants to have a hot, tasty meal. You just need a few simple tools to begin making Chinese recipes at home, including your favorite restaurant specialties.

All you need to cook basic Chinese recipes is a wok and a bamboo steamer. You may also want to invest in a small slotted wok spoon, which is almost like a spatula, but made specifically for use with a wok. You may also want to have a very sharp knife, or a cleaver, on hand. Many basic Chinese recipes call for finely diced meats and vegetables, making a sharp knife a necessary tool for Chinese cooking.

Chinese recipes often call for the use of a bamboo steamer, which can be picked up inexpensively in a local shop or ordered online. There are several tricks that will help you make your Chinese food healthy and delicious using your steamer, which should be used over a wok or large pot of boiling water.

First, you will want to make sure that the water you are using is boiling, and producing steam before you add the food to the steamer. This will keep the food flavorful and fresh, rather than damp and falling apart.

You should also make sure that you have enough water in your wok to cook the dish without adding more water, so that the water is producing steam through the cooking time for the dish. Chinese cooking will become easier with practice, but until you are an expert, you will have to experiment a little.

You may also want to buy some basic Chinese ingredients, such as soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, cornflour and ginger. Having the basics on hand will allow you to quickly cook your favorite Chinese recipes without having to make a special trip to the supermarket to pick up supplies.

You can always review your favorite recipes before your next trip to the supermarket, and pick the items that you will need later for cooking them. Some items, such as ginger, will keep for quite some time as long as you keep it refrigerated, while other items should always be fresh.

After you have spent some time experimenting with Chinese cooking, you and your family will know which Chinese recipes you like best, so you can stock up on the ingredients you need with less guessing.

You can find many different recipes using an online search engine, which will also allow you to learn more about Chinese food and how to prepare them. Many of the most popular recipes are easy to find online, such as Kung Pao chicken, Chinese steamed fish, fried rice or sweet and sour pork. Finding several Chinese recipes online will also allow you to prepare your tools and pantry for making your favorite Chinese food at home. Many different websites will offer you a comprehensive list of the things you need to get started.

Unheard of Chinese Street Food You MUST Try | Farmers Market in China! China Cuisine

I visited this local market near the outskirts of Chengdu, Sichuan, China, and found Chinese street food and the atmosphere to be mind blowing and exciting! It was truly an experience visiting this Chinese street market! So much food and Sichuan ingredients, so many flavours to try!

Please like: www.facebook.com/foodrangin

I visited this morning market on a Sunday morning in Chengdu at 8am with an empty stomach and money to blow with the goal of tasting foods and chatting with as many locals as possible. This is a true China experience. It was so busy, with so many people, so many things to buy and look at, tons of vegetables, meat, live chickens, live hens, live roosters, everything you could want really. Fresh handmade noodles, fresh Sichuan cold “liangbancai”, and a huge meat market deli area with hanging pork and beef to choose from. All of the locals were friendly and talkative, although a bit surprised to see a foreigner walking through the area!

If you’re visiting China as a tourist, you’ll definitely want to take a walk through a busy morning market like this. There are countless street foods to try and people to chat to (If you speak a little mandarin). This market was mind blowing!

Rather than trying hot pot in Chengdu or hot pot in Chongqing, you could try some way cooler food in Chengdu at local market like this. This should be a top priority in my opinion!

Chinese cuisine is so diverse, and I consider myself lucky to be able to live in Sichuan, eating Sichuan food everyday, tasting all the top Chinese foods to try whenever I want. I’ve decided to stay living in China for at least another 2 or 3 years to get the feel of it and eat as much as I can!

The address of this market was:

农贸市场
青羊区苏坡中路5-10号

Tips for Chinese Cooking Made Easy

Have you ever wanted to make Chinese food at home, but were too intimidated by the thought of actually doing it? After all, there can be a lot of exotic ingredients that you might think are hard to find, and the techniques might be different, but you need not worry. By learning a few tips and tricks, Chinese cooking made easy is possible in your own home.

Cooking Chinese food in your own kitchen will not only save you time and money, but will also taste better because you can control the quality of ingredients that you put into your food. In order to save money, a lot of Chinese restaurants will use the cheapest cuts of meat possible and low quality vegetables. But, a lot of people are intimidated by the thought of cooking at home because of all the strange ingredients. Contrary to your perception, finding Asian ingredients for your recipes is easier than you would imagine. In recent years, most major supermarkets have a section devoted to ethnic food. There you will find almost every ingredient that you need to make easy Chinese recipes at home like soy sauce, oyster sauce, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and noodles. You can also make use of your local produce and meat to serve as the foundation to all of your meals.

While at the Asian food section of your local market, you can also find pre-made sauces that can be used to speed up your cooking and to make your life easier. For instance, instead of making your own stir fry sauce, you can buy it already made and seasoned. All that you have to do is stir fry your vegetables or meat and throw in a little of the sauce to finish your dish.

You should also consider buying flavored oils to make your Asian cooking easier. Most Chinese recipes call for ginger and garlic to be added to the oil as aromatic agents. However, you can avoid having to mince garlic and ginger by purchasing oils that are already infused with their essences, saving you the time of having to chop ginger and garlic as well as the money that you would need to spend purchasing them. These stir fry oils keep for a very long time and are great if you only cook Asian foods every now and then and do not want to have to buy fresh ginger or garlic.

Most dishes can be cooked very quickly in a matter of a few minutes. The secret to this high speed method is all in the preparation. The best way to make sure that your cooking will go smoothly and easily is to get all of your prep work done. This starts when you bring your Chinese ingredients back from the grocery store. Wash all of your produce when you bring them back from the store. This way, when you're ready to cook, all you have to do is reach into your refrigerator and grab your ingredients without having to spend the extra time washing them. You can also cut some vegetables in advance to help you save time later in the week when you come home after work and want to have a meal on the table very quickly. Just be sure to only cut vegetables like carrots that will not dry out or discolor. Speaking of vegetables, you can also make your life easier by buying frozen vegetables for your stir fries. Frozen vegetables are picked at the height of their ripeness and are immediately frozen, locking in their flavor.

Rice is almost always served along side Chinese dishes in order to act as a filler and to sop up all of the delicious sauces. However, cooking rice from scratch is not easy to do for novice cooks. It is easy to get the wrong proportions of water to rice and easy to burn. To make cooking rice for your meal easier, you can buy microwave rice that comes in little cups that reheat in less than a minute.

By taking a few shortcuts and by knowing a few tips, Chinese food made easy is well within your abilities.

Chinese Food – The Best Option For Good Health

The Chinese food is very good for health as it is cooked with the purpose of enhancing the health benefits, such as long life, healing powers and medicinal value. It requires a good knowledge and experience to prepare the Oriental cuisine. It is cooked with poly unsaturated oils and no milk based ingredients like cream, butter or cheese are used. Although meat is also used, it is not used in excess to avoid high amounts of animal fat and cholesterol. Such type of food is called genuine Chinese food, which is actually a perfect diet for good health. The traditional food must include rice, noodles and vegetables.

The way of serving the food is also very special. It is almost obligatory to cut the food into small pieces before serving, and there will be no knives at the dining table. The right combination of things like herbs and condiments is very important. The food should be tempting in color and texture and must be enjoyed in peace. You can choose from a wide variety of dishes having different nutritional value. Chicken or beef and vegetables are a good combination. One can have cashew chicken or beef and broccoli in place of fried dishes like sesame chicken. Such dishes are very nutritious while the traditional foods like lo mien having noodles soaked in oil, fats and carbohydrates are not good for health.

Take brown rice instead of fried rice to avoid high levels of cholesterol and carbohydrates. Soy sauce and other additives rich in sodium content are basically used in Chinese food. But as you know, a lot of sodium is harmful, avoid too much sauce and go for vegetables and steamed dishes or stir fried using little or no oil. To reduce fat calories, take a healthy diet containing vegetable based dishes having some sauces and steamed rice. Taking fortune cookies at the end of the meal would be great.

To conclude, a Chinese food with a lot of vegetables, snow peas, and low in salt is considered a healthy food. The quality of the food also depends on your choice of the restaurant, whether it is a low-priced one or a high end restaurant. The waiter or the manager would also be keen to guide you about the kind of dishes and their nutritional value. So, it is very important for your health to select the right place and the right things to eat.
