Thoughts of travel, that I've been ignoring for some time, came on very strong recently. So in lieu of being able to head out right now, I delved into some old friends.
The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook, copyright 1966, has been a go-to for obscure Chinese recipes for some time now. In it "centuries of Chinese culinary lore have been distilled, selected, and set forth especially for the Westerner."
Some recipes a little more involved than others.
I have found a lot of comfort in the book noodle, copyright 1999, as you can see here some inspiration for recent eats of mine.
