Huge Discovery for Chinese-Food Freaks:
At last and up-to-the minute Chinese info source
Think about all the Chinese-food info you get from the mainstream Western media: Do you ever learn anything new? Do you ever get to see anything from a Chinese perspective, rather than a western one?
Now imagine a newsletter, conceived and produced by Chinese people — in English! — that fills you in four times a year on real Chinese food, with recipes, scholarly articles, book reviews of little-known Chinese titles, travel pieces and restaurant finds. You've just imagined the miraculous Flavor & Fortune, a publication of the Institute for the Advancement of the Science & Art of Chinese Cuisine.
Here are some of the stories from recent issues that I've particularly loved, many of them containing info that I simply would not ve able to find anywhere else:
And here are some of the authentic and delectable recipes:
All of that is extraordinary—but if the newsletter contained nothing but restaurant tips, it would still be worth its low subscription price (only $19.50 for 4 issues a year, about the same per-issue as The Rosengarten Report). I live in New York, and it was of incomparable value to me to learn about the terrific No. 1 People and People's Chinese Restaurant in Flushing Queens, and about the A&B Lobster King House on the corner of Chatham Square in Manhattan's Chinatown. But Flavor & Fortune is scrupulous about combing the country for great Chinese restaurants in other cities, too. The hunt for authenticity goes on!Reproduced with permission of David Rosengarten www.davidrosengarten.com.
