Dunlop and fellow Dining readers on Monday, Sept. Eastern time, at nytimes. Enter Fuchsia Dunlop , a British journalist who has done more to explain real Chinese cooking to non-Chinese cooks than anyone.
It all started in the mids, when she enrolled in cooking school in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, more to improve her language skills than with the expectation of becoming a skilled cook. Anyone can buy a bamboo steamer online, and tofu is available at nearly every supermarket in the country.
And we are not just talking about stir-fries. Image Gong bao chicken with peanuts. Chris Terry The recipes in this book are authentic, gathered from Ms. Then Ms. Dunlop will join me and three Dining readers in a live video chat to discuss the recipe and Chinese cooking at home.
Dunlop said of the gong bao chicken. Cut chicken as evenly as possible into half-inch strips, then cut strips into small cubes. Place in a small bowl. Add marinade ingredients and 1 tablespoon water to bowl. Mix well and set aside. Peel and thinly slice garlic and ginger. Chop spring onions into chunks as long as their diameter to match the chicken cubes.
Snip chiles in half or into sections, discarding their seeds. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Heat a seasoned wok over a high flame.
Add oil, chiles and Sichuan pepper and stir-fry briefly until chiles are darkening but not burned. Remove wok from heat if necessary to prevent overheating. Quickly add chicken and stir-fry over a high flame, stirring constantly. As soon as chicken cubes have separated, add ginger, garlic and spring onions and continue to stir-fry until they are fragrant and meat is just cooked through test one of the larger pieces to make sure.
Give sauce a stir and add to wok, continuing to stir and toss. As soon as the sauce has become thick and shiny, add the peanuts, stir them in and serve. Note: Store-bought roasted peanuts work well here, but if you want to roast your own peanuts, heat oven to degrees. Place raw nuts on an oven tray and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until fragrant and very slightly golden. Keep an eye on them, as they are easily burned.
Cool nuts on a plate, then rub nuts between your fingertips to loosen their skins. Shake nuts as you blow over them; skins will blow away.
