When I first began cooking more than twenty years ago, I never imagined there would come a time when I might worry about what I was eating. Yet currently the world's food supply is at great risk. Our natural genetic base is fast disappearing into the hands of large conglomerates while more and more natural varieties and species are being lost each year, we are being over-whelmed by genetically engineered foods with insufficient history to let us ascertain their long term effects on our bodies. Additionally, we face the growing issue of food safety-the proliferation of diseases such as BSE and E.coli which are the result of unnatural and unsustainable food production practices.
Ken Hom and Ching-He Huang teamed up for a once in a lifetime culinary journey to explore the food of their homeland, looking for the old, the new, and the unexpected. They arrive in Beijing to examine the influences of the West on traditional Imperial cuisine and talk to cutting-edge chefs about their take on Peking Duck. They cook with local families, en route to discovering the influence of Buddhism on vegetarian food and whether the Chinese did actually invent tortellini in remote Kashgar, before traveling to Sichuan Province, China's gastronomic capital. But this is more than a culinary journey; this is a homecoming for Ken and Ching, and they make their own pilgrimages to Guangdong and Fujian to discover their personal and culinary roots. Ching admires Ken's experience and knowledge, while Ken respects Ching's modern influences. Together they bring a unique and authoritative perspective on Chinese food that will surprise and inform.

Since time immemorial, cooking and building have been among humanitys most basic occupations. Both of them are rooted in necessity, but both of them also possess a cultural as well as a sensory, aesthetic dimension. And while it is true that cooking is a transitory art form, it gives expression to the periods of human cultural history just as architecture does. Moreover, both arts accord a central role to the materials employed. Both involve measuring and proportioning, shaping and designing, assembling and composing. This book pursues the astonishing parallels and deeply rooted connections between the art of building and that of cooking. A variety of essays takes up questions of materiality and proportioning. Attention will also be given to food cultivation and architecture, to the places where meals are prepared as well as a range of different culinary spaces. With articles by Annette Gigon, Stanislaus von Moos, Claudio Silvestrin, Ian Ritchie, and others.
