Fuchsia fever: win a copy of Every Grain of RiceJune 19, 2012
As you might know, we are big fans of Fuchsia Dunlop at our house, ever since we came back from China the first time with her Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook in our luggage.
Well, I’ve struck gold and so have you, because Bloomsbury has sent me two copies of Dunlop’s very gorgeous-looking new book, Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese home cooking, and one of these will go to one of you. Howbout it goes to the Australian-based reader (sorry, postage overseas would be a little prohibitive – it’s a lovely thick hardback!) who leaves the best comment on my last post, about why you love to cook? I think I’ll get our resident Chinese cooking expert, Senor, to pick the winner, in the next week or so.
One of the things to love about Every Grain of Rice is that the recipes are simpler than you might expect, and vegetable dishes are the star. As soon as you see these photos, I guarantee you will start salivating as I just have, over dishes like “Smacked cucumber in a garlicky sauce”, “Silken tofu with avocado”, “Smoked tofu with celery and peanuts”, “Stir-fried green soybeans with snow vegetable” and much more. It’s a beautiful book.
So go on – get cracking and leave a comment on Why cook?
