Amy and Julie Zhang have been entertaining and educating their thousands of followers on Youtube with their recipes for deliciously easy homemade Chinese food - now THE DUMPLING SISTERS COOKBOOK brings you more of the easy Chinese recipes and advice that those fans have been clamouring for.

The recipes are structured as to give a gradual introduction to Chinese dishes, beginning with the simple; Best Ever Fried Rice, and working up to the more elaborate Cracking Five-Spice Roast Pork Belly, and are interspersed with the insider tips and tricks that the girls' Youtube fans adore. There is also a focus on Chinese culture and eating etiquette (for perfecting those chopstick skills), including sharing menu planner and a guide to shopping at the Chinese supermarket. Amy and Julie write with wit and gusto - they are the perfect cooks to take any food lover on a journey to discover real Chinese cooking.

Biographical Notes

The Dumpling Sisters are an engaging and charismatic duo who have referred to themselves as the 'young, Asian, and (much) less hairy Hairy Bikers'. They are exceptionally bright girls; Amy has a PhD in science and Julie has a masters in psychology and criminology, with a passion for cooking.

The Zhang family is from Guangzhou in China, a city famed for its incredible Cantonese cuisine. After moving to New Zealand the family set up a Chinese food cart which was as a family - giving Amy and Julie invaluable experience of cooking Chinese food to the highest standards. In 2014 the food cart is still going strong.

In 1972 Elizabeth Romer moved to a farmhouse in Tuscany, where she discovered a life moulded by the past and tasted the simple, sublime flavours of traditional Italian cooking for the first time. Here, she introduces the Cerotti family who farm one section of the valley, and vividly describes, month by month, the Tuscan year. From January's prosciutto and salame, to cheese-making in March, to threshing the corn in high summer, to the game and chanterelles of autumn, and the chestnut woods of November and December. In the heart of the Cerotti household wonderful meals are prepared using fresh and simple ingredients, governed by the rhythms of the changing seasons. Elizabeth Romer presents the fare for high days and holidays as well as every day, from fresh garlic and wild herbs to fried flowers and carnival cakes. This magical book reveals the secrets of an ancient way of life and cuisine, with dozens of delicious recipes to bring the flavour of Tuscany to any kitchen.Read by Maggie Mash(p) Orion Publishing Group 2018
