Taiwan’s long and colourful history, from the indigenous tribes, to the migration of the Chinese from Southern China and the period under Japanese rule, is clearly reflected in her rich and diverse cuisine. Home-style Taiwanese Cooking by Taiwanese chef and food blogger, Tsung-Yun Wan, is a collection of Taiwanese classics, from signature dishes such as minced pork rice, beef noodles, oyster omelette and steamed minced pork with salted egg, to popular street food fare such as deep-fried prawn rolls, dragon phoenix legs, fried chicken with sweet potato fries and coffin bread.With informative headnotes that tell the stories behind the dishes, insightful cooking tips, a detailed glossary of ingredients and step-by-step photos of cooking techniques where necessary, Home-style Taiwanese Cooking will inspire home cooks to make these authentic Taiwanese dishes part of their own cooking repertoire.
Tsung-Yun Wan is a Taiwanese chef based in Edinburgh, Scotland. She was brought up on a diet of good food as her grandparents were excellent cooks, and this inspired her to train as a chef at one of the top culinary schools in Taiwan. She then moved to Edinburgh to work at one of the most famous restaurants in the city until she got married and had her first child. Tsung-Yun Wan is now a full-time illustrator and her lively and colourful illustrations pepper this book. She also makes time to cook wholesome, hearty meals for her family and shares the food of Taiwan on her blog, Egg Wan’s Food Odyssey.
