Mister Jiu's in Chinatown: Recipes and Stories from the Birthplace of Chinese American Food | Author: Brandon Jew

The acclaimed chef behind the Michelin-starred Mister Jiu's in San Francisco's Chinatown shares stories of the past, present, and future of Chinese cooking in America through 90 mouth-watering recipes. Brandon Jew trained in the kitchens of California cuisine pioneers and Michelin-starred Italian institutions before finding his way back to Chinatown and the food of his childhood. Through deeply personal recipes and stories about the neighbourhood that often inspires them, this ground-breaking cookbook is an intimate account of how Chinese food became American food and the making of a Chinese American chef.

From the fundamentals of Chinese cooking to master class recipes, he interweaves recipes and techniques with stories about their origins in Chinatown and in his own family history. With more than a hundred photographs of finished dishes as well as moving and evocative atmospheric shots of Chinatown, this book is also an intimate portrait-a look down the alleyways, above the tourist shops, and into the kitchens of the neighbourhood that changed the flavour of America.
