The tender wonton wrappers, deep-fried to a crisp before being dunked in the soup, lend special character to this dish. The colour of the ingredients, suspended in the clear soup, is especially attractive. Wonton Wrapper Crisps Soup 28 May 2009
Dried scallops used to be relatively cheap in China and dried scallop soup was the poor man's Shark's fin soup. However, times have changed and this soup, with its contrast in texture between the tender scallops and the crisp bamboo shoots, is now one of the most sought-after first courses, second only to the Shark's fin and Bird's nest soups. Dried Scallop Soup 11 May 2009
Five-spice powder lends this dish its name as well as its characteristic aroma. In Fukien, where this dish originates from, duck's eggs, both the white and the yolk, are used because of their stronger taste. Deep-fried Five-spice Rolls 30 Apr 2009

In cookery, the Chinese often enjoy making up a dish to resemble the looks, if not also the taste of a particular ingredient, giving the dish the same name. This very light and delightful summer dessert, which looks like bean curd is, in fact, not bean curd at all! Almond Bean Curd 15 Feb 2009
A Cantonese dish at its simplest and best. The fresh scallops are steamed with just a touch of garlic, then served with a sauce to add zest to their natural sweetness. The details of preparation, seemingly elaborate, are nevertheless worth observing if you wish to make this simple yet sophisticated dish. Steamed Scallops in the Shell 12 Feb 2009

This pleasant Northern dish is served cold with a slightly tangy sauce, and because it can be prepared completely in advance it is very handy for entertaining.

Do not be put off by the rubbery appearance of the jellyfish which is sold in sheets, folded and packed into plastic bags with large grains of salt in-between the folds. When properly prepared, edible jellyfish gives great pleasure to those who enjoy food as much for texture as for taste. This is certainly why the Chinese seek it. Edible Jellyfish with Cucumber 31 Jan 2009

Texture is the essence of this dish. The quickly cooked shrimps should be crisp yet tender, and the longer they are marinated in the refrigerator (up to 3 days), the better their texture becomes. The delicate colour of the shrimps needs no garnish. Crisp Stir-fried Shrimps 29 Jan 2009
