***EXCERPT: “With these tempting recipes, you now can achieve all the rich, subtle flavors of genuine domestic Oriental cooking right in your own kitchen!  Here you will learn the secrets of preparing simple, ordinary ingredients by using the incomparable Chinese techniques.  Perfected by Lin Yutang’s family throughout many years of preparing actual Chinese dishes away from their native land, the recipes retain every bit of their original succulent delicacy.  Yet all the materials you need can be easily procured in any American supermarket.  The procedure is not at all complicated - the mysteries are simplified.  Merely by taking one or two extra steps you can adapt Chinese methods to the food you cook every day - soups, sea food, meat, fowl, eggs, vegetables - and there’s no need to go to the trouble of learning a new cooking process.  Here you’ll see how very simple ingredients can yield the finest soups.  Watercress cooked in chicken broth makes a light and refreshing concoction...a few turnips give beef broth a rich fragrance...some diced shrimp or a stalk of finely chopped scallion can lend a soul-satisfying variety to the most humdrum soups - and Mrs. Lin shows you exactly the right proportions.  You’ll discover how to use sherry to bring out the delicate and unique flavor of Scallops...how to combine exactly the right proportions of eggs, oysters, and scallions in Oyster Pancakes, a fragrant dish native to Mrs. Lin’s home town...and there’s also one of the best recipes ever invented for Lobster Cantonese Style - the sauce is tasty but not rich, creamy but not heavy - and the lobster meat becomes juicy and succulent.  For hors d’oeuvres or a cold buffet there are such delightfully flavorful morsels as Stuffed Mushrooms with Pork and Shrimp...light, puffy and golden brown Shrimp Balls...or Shrimp with Cucumber, where the delicate tones are matched by the delicate flavors.  You’ll also find Mrs. Lin’s secrets for preparing Sliced Lamb with Leeks, which is so good eaten piping hot on a soft bun...Fresh Ham, rich and tasty with a molasses-like flavor, stewed with Chestnuts that melt in the mouth...Diced Pork and Peanuts in Pungent Sauce, a savory dish which is simple to make and new to American tables...Braised Chicken, a gourmet’s blend of garlic, sherry, and chicken...the superb combination of Duck with Chinese Cabbage...and tasty recipes for Marinated Vegetables that will stimulate the appetite and offer a refreshing contrast to more elaborate foods.  Topping off this abundant collection is a section of fancy recipes calling for Chinese ingredients - an interesting challenge to the cook who wants an extra-special dish.  Of special interest are Mrs. Lin’s descriptions of the nature of Chinese cooking, how to serve a Chinese meal, what dishes go best together, and her techniques for preparing foods to retain their taste, color, and individual qualities...techniques that will provide the fullest satisfaction for the gourmet palate.  AND Two Special Essays on the Joy of Fine Cooking - ‘A Chat about Chines Food and a Chinese Cook’ by Carl Van Vechten and ‘The Art of Cooking’ by Lin Yutang”*
