The Cultural Revolution Cookbook : Simple Recipes from China's Countryside Hardback


In 1969 Sasha Gong, like millions of other Chinese teenagers, was forced from her home in the city to live and work with peasants in the countrys ideas part of China's Cultural Revolution (1966-1976).

The work was backbreaking, rations were tight, but one part of her "re-education" she remembers fondly is how to make simple, delicious country cooking.

The Cultural Revolution Cookbook is a collection of delectable, healthy and easy-to-make Chinese recipes from the villages, interspersed with personal narrative and bits of historical context.

With easy to find ingredients and easy techniques, anyone can prepare these authentic Chinese dishes.
