the buzz





What we call “Chinese food” actually describes specialties culled from many regional cuisines. For spicy hot, there’s Sichuan. Subtle sauces characterize Cantonese cooking. Elsewhere, sweet and sour sauces excel. And along the coast, soups and seafood are sublime. Although regional diversity reigns, three ingredients are fundamental to all: ginger, soy sauce and green onions. Chinese cuisine is defined by carefully balanced flavors and time-tested techniques that call for maximal preparation before minimal cooking. Throughout China, ingredients are prepared thoroughly, so food can be eaten with chopsticks and spoons. No fork or knife required.

About me:
I'm an ethnic chinese Singaporean. Working on my nutrition Masters from the US while living in Beijing with my American husband. After living in Asia for 10 years, he has acquired a pretty varied taste for foods here and proberbly eats even spicier foods than I do! He enjoys my cooking and we often have friends over for an indulgent social meal. We exercise quite intensively 6 days a week and are very careful about what we eat. I use Allrecipes to find meal ideas and often adapt them to suit our nutritional needs.
