My Shanghai allows everyone to enjoy the homestyle food Chinese people have eaten for centuries, in the context of how we cook today.
Betty Liu, whose family has deep roots in Shanghai and grew up eating homestyle Shanghainese food, demystifies Chinese cuisine for home cooks, providing recipes for family favorites that have been passed down through generations as well as authentic street food: her mother's lion's head meatballs, mung bean soup, and weekday stir-fries; her father-in-law's pride and joy, the Nanjing salted duck; the classic red-braised pork belly (as well as a riff to turn them into gua bao!); and core basics like high stock, wontons, and fried rice.
