In Susanna Foo Fresh Inspiration, she takes an even more revolutionary approach. Rather than recreating the Chinese dishes of the past, she redefines Chinese cooking. “My primary goal is to preserve the natural flavor and integrity of the ingredients,” she writes. Freshness and simplicity are the twin hallmarks of the more than 150 recipes, including Crispy Tuna Spring Rolls with Fresh Herb Salad, Ten-Vegetable Hot-and-Sour Soup, Braised Salmon with Soy and Ginger, Seared Scallops with Fresh Mushrooms, Corn Cakes with Cilantro and Chives, Roast Chicken with Peppercorn Rub, and Coconut Panna Cotta.
Strikingly illustrated, Susanna Foo Fresh Inspiration is both more accessible and more authentic than usual Chinese cookbooks, issuing a fresh invitation to cooks at all levels to roll up their sleeves and head to the kitchen.
