A beautiful introduction to growing and cooking with the variety, deliciousness, and healthfulness of Chinese cuisine

Wendy Kiang-Spray's family has a strong culinary and gardening tradition. In The Chinese Kitchen Garden, she beautifully blends the story of her family's cultural heritage with growing information for 38 Chinese vegetables--like lotus root, garlic, chives, and eggplant--and 25 traditional recipes, like congee, dumplings, and bok choy stir-fry. Organized by season, you'll learn what to grow in spring and what to cook in winter.
