This is about my favourite Chinese cookbook - full of authentic recipes and great pictures. A winning combination if ever there was one. It was the starting point for our dinner tonight. There is a very tasty recipe for "Three Cup Chicken", the internet equivalent for which seems to be quite elusive. The other recipe I tried, from a recently acquired library cast-off (one should hang about libraries when they are culling their stock!), was a steamed pork rib dish, such as you would have if you were enjoying Yum Cha.
Neither dish contained any kind of vegetable so I quartered a bunch of baby bok choy and steamed those in with the chicken. I had no idea, but two of the kids informed me they don't like bok choy. Well, I just think that's not allowed, so next time I would chop them up and make it part of the dish, proper. The flavour of bok choy is far less bossy when it's all mixed in and you get small, tender bites throughout.
