2023 • Interlink Books
Through over 80 classic yet accessible and playful recipes, Céline Chung and her family push back against the stereotypes surrounding Chinese cooking and pay tribute to its diversity and regionality. Expect an explosion of flavor, with recipes for scallion pancakes, chile chicken salad, Chinese spring rolls, hot-and-sour soup, sweet-and-sour fish, cumin beef, Cantonese fried rice, and of course bao buns—that perfectly fluffy finger food that feeds a crowd and can be tailored with delicious sweet and savory fillings.
Bao Family is a bold celebration of Chinese food today, spanning meals all through the day. The key recipes all feature handy step-by-step instructions, and every dish is imbued with the love that Céline and her family have for their homeland of Wenzhou, from their home in Paris.
