How To
Cooking Western Recipes in China
This page tells Expats how to cook familiar Western food using Chinese ingredients and kitchens.

One of your first problems is that Chinese kitchens invariably only consist of only 1 or 2 gas hobs, and possibly a very basic microwave if you are lucky. There will definitely be no: Oven, Grill, Hotplate, nor useful gadgets. Neither will you be able to replicate some ingredients - for instance I ship my curry powders from UK.

Our ever-growing recipe listings are as follows:
