In his culinary tour of China, bestselling author Ross Dobson guides you through the Chinese provinces where ginger, garlic and spring onions are seen as the celestial trinity of seasonings to regions which are characterised by meat flavoured with the rich spices commonly associated with India and the Middle East. While every Chinese region has its own distinctive combination of flavours, the common thread of just one or two ingredients weaves these delicious and simple recipes into a beautiful culinary tale.
