TBT-Cookbook Edition Dreaming of Distant Lands

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.
