Kitchen: Classic Family Recipes for Celebration and Healing (English Edition) ] Ѧ Kindle By Grace Young ऐ INTRODUCTIONIn Chinese cooking, every ingredient and dish is imbued with its own brilliance and lore When I was a young girl growing up in a traditional Chinese home in San Francisco, this knowledge was passed on to me through a lifetime of meals, conversations, celebrations, and rituals I felt every food we ate in our home had a story Eat rice porridge, jook, Mama would say, so you will live a long life Or, Drink the winter melon soup to preserve your complexion and to cool your body in the summer heat Early on, my brother Douglas and I observed that the principles of yin and yang a balance of opposites were integrated into our everyday fare For example, vegetables considered cooling, such as bean sprouts, were stir fried with ginger, which is warming Or stir fried and deep fat fried dishes were eaten with poached or steamed dishes in the same meal to offset the fatty qualities of the fried dishes After a rich meal special nourishing soups were served to restore balance in the body.Today, the brilliant harmony of Chinese cooking is gaining recognition Chinese cuisine uses spare amounts of protein and a minimum of oil Carbohydrates comprise essentially 80 percent of the diet and, in Southern China, this is primarily vegetables and rice, a nonallergenic complex carbohydrate that is one of the easiest foods to digest Herbs and foods like ginseng, soybeans, gingko nuts, and ginger, which the Chinese have integrated into their diet for thousands of years, are now being accepted by the West as particularly beneficial for health Many of the vegetables in the Chinese diet, especially greens like bok choy, are rich in beta carotene, other vitamins, phytochemicals, and minerals, and the favored technique of stir frying preserves the vegetables nutrients.My parents have impressed upon me their love of food as they had learned it in China l grew up to appreciate every aspect of cooking, from shopping to preparation to the rituals of eating This lifelong influence led me to my career as a food stylist and recipe developer My father, Baba, often warned Douglas and me about certain foods Chow mein and fried dim sum, he said, were too warming, yeet hay, or toxic, if eaten in excess On the other hand, most vegetables and fruits were cooling, leung, and therefore especially good to eat during the summer He never actually explained to us precisely what too warming or too cooling meant but, somehow, we accepted it and allowed that he was right.Still, my brother and I listened to our parents stories with only half an ear When Mann served Dried Fig, Apple, and Almond Soup and reminded us that it was soothing for our bodies, yun, we didn t really care Instead, we could hardly wait to sink our teeth into a pizza, a hamburger, or a Swanson chicken pot pie, foods that we somehow knew were yeet hay, but were too much a part of the all American life we led outside our home that we craved them anyway.Both my parents brought from China the traditions of food and cooking as they had practiced them in their homeland To this day, they maintain one of the few traditional Chinese households among the members of our extended family in America, which numbers well over two hundred relatives Although some of my relatives eat pasta than rice, nay parents and the older uncles and aunties take pride in their expertise in classic Chinese cooking They still center their diet around the principles of Chinese nutrition.My family s kitchen was often fragrant with the aroma of homemade chicken broth simmering on the back burner of the stove Invariably, bok choy was draining in a colander, while a fresh chicken hung on a rod over the counter to air dry briefly before it was braised or roasted Instead of boxes of commercial cereals, our kitchen cupboards were filled with jars of indigenous Chinese ingredients like lotus seeds, dried mushrooms, various soy sauces, cellophane noodles, and curious looking herbs like ginseng, red dates, and angelica, or dong quai Instead of milk and butter dairy products are not part of Chinese cuisine , our refrigerator shelves were likely to have tofu, ground bean sauce, ginger, and lotus root In the pantry sat a 100 pound sack of rice.Like many first generation Americans, I didn t give my culinary heritage much thought until I was well into adulthood Growing up in San Francisco, I ate Cantonese home style food every day These were not dishes found on restaurant menus, but rich, savory dishes with pure, simple flavors that are the hallmark of a home cook Whether it was a simple weeknight supper or a elaborate weekend meal, my parents wanted us to know why, in all of China, the Cantonese were considered to be the best cooks Their cuisine is the most highly developed it has the broadest range of flavors, yet the subtlest of tastes Later I would learn that the concept of foods having warming and cooling characteristics is especially revered by the Cantonese and manifests itself in their cooking All the special soups we drank for nourishing and harmonizing our bodies came from a distinctly Cantonese tradition, one not found in any other part of China.Only recently have I realized that I had taken my marvelous Cantonese culinary heritage for granted Even members of my extended family have, like me, expanded their diets far beyond Cantonese fare My cousin tells me that his wife is an excellent Italian cook When it comes to Chinese food however, she cannot surpass the quality of their local take out While the cousins of my generation and their children enjoy Chinese traditions, only a few of them seem to have maintained the knowledge of the traditional recipes they were raised with Who has time to learn the family recipes and digest their meaning and importance My Auntie Bertha, who cooked countless memorable meals for me when I was a child, tells me she has forgotten most of her Chinese dishes she says it is easier to cook simple American style meals.On my visits to San Francisco, Mama s delicious cooking stirred my taste memory, and I began to notice how much healthier I felt after several days of home cooking As I began to record my family s recipes, I realized there were huge gaps in my knowledge, having learned Chinese cooking only through casual observation and not from formal study Even with my professional cooking experience and natural familiarity with Chinese cuisine, it required energetic detective work to decipher and understand some of the recipes For Chinese cooking is as ancient as its culture, with layers of meaning and wisdom that cannot be easily explained No one member of my family could teach me every recipe or answer all my questions I acquired most of my knowledge from my parents, but relatives and family friends all offered little bits of information that I pieced together The power and wisdom of Chinese cooking goes far beyond simply mastering the complex cooking techniques or even knowing the ingredients For me, the principles that govern Chinese cooking and nutrition are far intriguing than the Western notions of nutrition, with its focus on cholesterol, vitamins, minerals, fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and fits in the diet It is a cuisine based on opposites, the yin yang principles of cooking This philosophy is so instinctively ingrained in my family that it was hard for them to articulate it verbally I recognized that if I didn t begin questioning my parents, grandmother, aunts, and uncles, the wisdom of their diet and the lore of our culinary heritage would be irretrievably lost It became clear that I needed to look to the past to understand the present.I recorded my family s recipes without Americanizing the ingredients There are those who offer substitutes for traditional Chinese ingredients, but this fails to acknowledge the genius of Chinese cooking There is a reason for thousands of years of reverence for certain combinations Recipes that offer, for example, Kentucky string beans as a substitute for Chinese long beans fail to grasp the Chinese nutritional perspective While both vegetables have a similar crunchiness and might seem comparable, the Chinese long bean is the only vegetable the Cantonese consider neutral, neither too yin, cooling, nor too yang, warming, and is the only vegetable women are allowed to eat after giving birth Cantonese believe most vegetables and fruits are cooling and, therefore, dangerous for a new mother, especially in the first month after she gives birth.The recipes in this book include some that do not require exotic Chinese ingredients Not every dish needs a specialty ingredient of labor intensive chopping and shredding but, in all truthfulness, if you genuinely desire to cook Chinese dishes, you will need exotic ingredients, along with the time to properly prepare them Some cooks will suggest using canned water chestnuts in place of fresh, but it is my feeling that if fresh are not available, the recipe is not worth making For me, using canned water chestnuts is like using canned potatoes In some areas, I ve simplified recipes by calling for the food processor to puree ingredients But, overall, I have tried to preserve the traditional ingredients and techniques as much as possible, preferring to hand shred ginger and vegetables rather than feed them through a food processor.The recipes reflect the range of mastery of the Cantonese home cook The rich flavors of home style cooking include basic stir fry recipes, steamed recipes, rice dishes, braises, and soups my family cooked these on most weeknights Also included are the auspicious and elaborate foods connected with New Year s and special occasions Some of these recipes have an old world quality about them, reflecting an era when people had time to cook Finally, the healing remedies are intended to restore harmony and strength to the body for proper yin yang balance.Chinese culinary healing, while essentially overlooked in the West, remains vital to Cantonese culture To restore the natural balance in our bodies, my family countered the rich and delicious foods we ate regularly with what I call yin yang concoctions, or special soups made according to a than thousand year old tradition I have written these recipes and explained their health benefits as my family practices them All the recipes were eaten in moderation, and never considered a substitute for professional medical attention Sometimes, the recipes or stories behind them vary slightly from family to family, and from village to village I offer them here as they were taught to me.My parents approach to cooking is Zen like attentive to detail and masterful They are not formally trained in cooking, yet they share a passion for food that is common among many Chinese They have great esteem for the meaning and symbolism of food as well as respect for age old remedies The everyday rituals of properly selecting produce, slicing meat, washing rice, and presenting a meal, which I have inherited from my family, have given me an aesthetic insight into life The slow emergence of these truths has allowed me to see the meaning of my own cooking as a metaphor for life.Copyright copy 1999 by Grace YoungAmy Tan A cookbook of
