How To
Many foreigners who have lived for a long time in China may find some items are either unobtainable, or ridiculously expensive. If you have ever found yourself yearning for a plate of Butchers sausages, or Cheddar Cheese on fresh bread that does not have 15 tons of molasses added to every slice - then this page is for you!

Others may be new to China and do not know what many of the produce sold are, or what to do with them. Then still others may be looking for genuine Cantonese recipes. We will answer all these questions..

Medicinal Ingredients   Having soup or hot pot, and want to know what is in it and why? Mostly these are medicinal herbs, and some are very specific and designed for eating by either boys or girls to promote good health. Full details with pictures and recipes.    
Other produce   Mooncakes, Mushrooms, Sugar and some other things that don't quite fit into other categories are listed as a group of stand-alone pages.
Condiments   These feature staple Chinese liquids and sauces that feature in every kitchen, or are common at any table.    
Cooking Utensils   This new section for September 2010 is your guide to what your kitchen actually needs to cook in proper Chinese style. It focus's on equipment. For standard cooking ingredients such as oils etc, see above.    
Imperial Measures   I was brought up to use the very practicable Imperial Measuring system, and schools of my era did not even teach the very simplistic metric system. Since my day, schools now appear to only teach the totally inadequate french system, which I do not understand at all - and have absolutely no wish to either. Therefore all measures given by us are in Imperial, and this guide will help you understand what their metric equivalents are.
