    One thought on “All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China

    1. Shelby *trains flying monkeys*

      This book is way more than a simple cookbook. The author tells the history of China and it's foods by breaking the country into sections. It's a history lesson/foodie dream come true.She does the book in a way that a clueless (raises hand) Chinese food rookie can not feel overwhelmed. A majority of the food can be done by even me. There is of course, some that is way over my head. But who knows? One day I may actually decide to tackle some of them. Some people may miss the glamorous foodie pics [...]

      Was given a print copy (huzzah!) for my birthday so am rereading. I originally read a NetGalley version on my Kindle. The bonus here, aside from clear presentation of the writing, is that there are a lot of illustrations (occasionally whimsical) which really enhance the book. My favorite so far - a picture of a cow, with all the offal labeled, and a sound bubble coming from its mouth saying "Moo" (I assume) in Chinese characters. Original review is below.=========I was 12% into this book when I [...]

      If I was exiled to a desert island and forced to bring only one Chinese cookbook with me, it would have to be All Under Heaven by Carolyn Phillips.For years, I’ve longed for an ultimate Chinese cookbook. An encyclopedic guide to the finest culinary pleasures of China without prejudice to one particular region. A book that would honor the foods of Zhejiang and Shaanxi and Xinjiang as much as the flavors of Sichuan, Hunan and the Cantonese region.Thanks to Carolyn, that cookbook (All Under Heave [...]

      I received this book as an advance reader copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The Chinese cookbook that sees the most action in my kitchen is a 1975 hardcover edition of Gloria Bley Miller’s Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook, which is so old and well used that it is falling apart. I have perused/purchased/experimented with other Chinese cookbooks over the years, but none have captured my heart like the battered blue book. So I was definitely excited to learn that I got approved [...]

    5. Lara

      This is a marvelous cookbook that covers the breadth and depth of China's geography, peoples, and cuisines. The author has lived in China and traveled a great deal. The book is divided up by region, and each section starts with an introduction to the region's geography, history and people. Due to China's large size, there are many different cultures and a complex history. In the US we tend to mostly know food from one or two regions, but there is so much more. Each section of the book has appeti [...]

      A really comprehensive journey through China's many regional cuisines, with a good balance of food history and personal recollection to contextualise the recipes - with such a big collection there was a risk that it could become quite dry, but luckily this doesn't happen. There were really helpful diagrams to illustrate all kinds of intricate techniques. The one thing that could've improved the recipes for me would be giving metric conversions alongside the imperial.Thanks to Netgalley for the c [...]

      A very good cookbook covering the diverse foods of China. The author's additions outside of recipes and food (talking about the various people, climates, etc. of the regions of China) are interesting and enhance the cookbook. The recipes themselves are solid and are designed to be accessible and do-able in an American kitchen provided you have access to a decent Asian market (and frankly, even if you don't, the pantry ingredients could be ordered online). The book offers only an overview or "gre [...]

      I would like to thank Ten Speed Press for allowing me to read an ARC of this book, via Netgalley, in exchange for an open and honest review.Wow, what an amazing source of knowledge, history and simply yummy recipes. I may not be Chinese, but I grew up in Darwin and was heavily influenced by parts of the Chinese culture (food mostly) in my youth. Because of this, there are certain (mostly Cantonese/ Hong Kongese) meals that are still comfort foods for me today. Some are your mainstream, typical [...]

      Interesting look at Chinese cuisine, but realistically I am never going to find the ingredients to make these recipes.

    10. Robert Durough, Jr.

      All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China by Carolyn Phillips is the most comprehensive cookbook of Chinese cuisine I’ve ever seen, and I’ve looked through many in both the US and China. There are certainly others that go into greater detail on a specific type of cuisine (e.g I have one just for dumplings), but this is the first that covers such a broad range of local cuisines with such depth and intentionality. If you only have one Chinese cookbook, this is indeed the one to h [...]

      All Under Heaven by Carolyn Phillips takes a comprehensive look at Chinese cuisine, and by comprehensive I mean over 500 pages containing over 300 recipes, and weighing approximately 4 pounds!This woman is serious about her cooking, and as authentic as you can get. All 35 different cuisines of China are represented, divided into five different regions. Each section of this volume relays a fascinating and well-researched food history of the region it represents. If you don't know where a recipe t [...]

    12. Tonstant Weader

      All Under Heaven is a comprehensive guide to the cuisines of China, all 35 of them. Did you even know there were 35 Chinese cuisines? Cynthia Phillips does and she wrote the book. The cuisines are organized geographically, starting with the North, and the Manchurian Northeast, down the Yangtze River and Environs, down to the Coastal Southeast, across the Central Highlands and off to the Arid Lands of the West. There is also a huge section on the fundamentals of Chinese cuisine. There’s also va [...]

      I reviewed this book for NetGalley."All Under Heaven" is Carolyn Phillips' paen to one of the most important components of Chinese culture, Chinese cuisine. As Ms. Phillips so succinctly states, her book is merely the tip of the iceberg because Chinese cuisine is so varied and immense. In her opinion (from forty years of studing and eating so many different types of Chinese cuisine), there are five major gastronomic regions and thirty-five unique cuisines along with the antiquity of Chinese cult [...]

      When I requested this book, I was expecting a normal sized cookbook, not the mammoth of a tome I received. While that is not necessarily a bad thing, it does make this cookbook a little cumbersome to carry around. You may be asking, why are you carrying around a cookbook? That is because occasionally I read cookbooks for fun when I’m at work. Aside from that, there are many aspects of this cookbook I enjoyed. The first is the map of China that shows the regions where the foods come from. I als [...]

    15. Marti

      This book is excellent for two types of people: those who really want to learn how to cook Chinese dishes and those who want to learn about various Chinese cuisines. I fall into the latter category, for sure. At first I thought maybe I'd try a recipe or two, but so many require a wok or a sand pot or a trip to a special Asian grocery store, you really need to be dedicated. Phillips has a great primer in the back for how to make bases for lots of the recipes and illustrated how-tos for trickier s [...]

      All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China by Carolyn Phillips is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early August.Phillips lays out five chapters by what she sees as the five culinary regions of China - the Northeast, Yangtze River, Southeast Coast, Central Highlands, and the Northwest - before going into basic/underlying recipes (sauces, doughs), cooking tips, and shopping advice. My personal favorite chapters were the Southeast Coast (noodles) and the Northwest (hearty nomadic [...]

      This is a very authentic book about cooking from China. The book is divided into the cooking regions od The Northern and Manchurian N/W, the Yangtze River and its environs, central highlands, the coastal S/E and the arid lands. The recipes are very well written and very easy to follow - I would have a few problems accessing some of the ingredients, but anyone with a decent Asian store nearby would not have a problem. The book is illustrated by very lovely hand drawings and I really love it, alth [...]

      This cookbook appears to be very well researched. The recipes are organized by region, and the instructions are clear. It wasn't a cookbook for me because many of the ingredients would be expensive or difficult to find.
