Chinese-Japanese Cook Book (Cooking in America) by Onoto Watanna
English | Mar. 7, 2006 | ISBN: 1557093717 | 138 Pages | PDF | 34 MB
Published originally in 1914, this is the first Asian cookbook published in America. The fascinating new introduction by Asian cooking authority Jacqueline M. Newman reveals the trickery at play from the two sisters of Anglo-Chinese descent who wrote the book. The Chinese recipes are simple Chinese-American ones using ordinary ingredients. Many are for chop suey and chow mein using lots of celery, bean sprouts, and gravy.
