Jacqueline M. Newman is the editor of "Flavor and Fortune," a journal mixing food academia, history, culture, and recipes for serious fans of Chinese food. The journal seems to have a clear goal of encouraging readers to appreciate that there are several, even many, Chinese cuisines. That goal stands behind this new cookbook from Ms. Newman dedicated to Fujian (aka Fukien) cuisine, which is far less well-known to Americans than Cantonese or Hunanese cuisines or the foods of Sichuan.

Since this is a region whose foods are not well-known to North Americans, the cookbook is a real eye opener. You'll find dishes you've never heard of and combinations of ingredients and tastes that will be new to most cooks. You'll be making an extra visit to your Asian grocery store for sauces and ingredients you haven't used before. This is for the serious cook of Chinese food but the effort will be rewarded.

The book is a concrete reminder that there are more than two dozen different cuisines from China.

The cooking of Fujian isn't exactly unknown in the west, but it has received relatively attention compared to, say, Cantonese or Szechuan cuisine. Which is a pity because the cooking of this coastal province offers a distinctly different taste and many unique dishes.

This book offers a variety of recipes from the Fujian area. They range from simple, home-style dishes to elaborate banquet fare, such as "Buddha Jumped Over The Wall." The instructions are clear and well-written, although some of the ingredients might be hard to find, even at a Chinese market.

If you're interesting in cooking Chinese beyond the obvious, try this book.

I got the book because it was written by a cousin,and I wanted my sons to have it. I have since bought one for myself and have read it twice. It is well written and extremely informative.If you are serious about chinese cooking and I mean authentic Chinese , then this book is a must in your collection.

I got the kindle version of the book when it was still free, so I can't complain too much. However, since it is now sold for close to 10 $, this is what you should take into account:

- Some ingredients are so unfamiliar that I could not access them unless I go to Chinatown; Bean curd sheets come to mind. My local grocery only has firm or soft tofu.
- Some recipes are clearly time-consuming;
- Some just did not feel like it would taste good.

For those reasons, I had the book for two months and did not try a single recipe. So for me, it would not have been a good choice if I had to pay for it.

I do believe the recipes represent real chinese food and not the americanized version and I applaud the author for her efforts.

This cookbook is better suited for cooks familiar with chinese cooking and ingredients. If you are, like me, a north american who just wants to learn to cook chinese food, you might be disappointed.

A large percentage of Fujianese immigrated to Taiwan since late 1600s, after Koxinga (Zheng Chenggong) defeated the Dutch around 1640s. The only misinformation I find in this book, is that wheat is a major part of the diet. Today, wheat is part of the diet. Not in the 1200s or earlier. Wheat is a cold weather, dry climate crop. Wheat is NOT native to Fujian, nor Taiwan; the climate is too warm and too moist/humid for wheat to grow. Northern Chinese cuisine, like Beijing, is wheat based. Wheat flour is an imported food, not native to the area.

Fujian is considered a southern China province; southern China food is sweeter than food from Beijing (northern Chinese), and rice is the star. The sweetness is not American sweet. Recipes will have a tablespoon of sugar or two, that's it. But if you're from Beijing, the food will taste milder and more sweet. Hence a ton of rice noodles, rice vermicelli, rice cakes, sticky rice cakes, lots of versions of rice mochi in different forms (new year cakes, nian gao), etc.

A lot of what Fujianese eats is what Taiwanese eats. Traditional Taiwanese, like traditional Fujianese, has NO WHEAT in their diets. Hence everything made with wheat is replaced with rice. A good cook book is the Chinese Cuisine: Taiwanese Style which has many of the same dishes, and the beloved holiday dish Budda Jumping Over the Wall (佛跳牆).

I find the book a little more difficult to understand, as there are no Chinese texts of the actual dishes. Since China is such a vast country, with more than 2000 dialects (if you count local village speak/colloquialisms), it can make things difficult for non-Chinese speakers to find the right ingredients. Also translations of Chinese into English, some words are NOT translated correctly.

Fuyu? Pronounced "fu2 ru3". Not the persimmon, but fermented beancurd (which is the correct term - which the author says it's not). It IS made from cubes of tofu, specially made from more soybeans and not diluted with glucono delta lactone, like the American ones, sun-dried, and salt-fermented with Chinese rice wine and salt. That's the basic white version. Like cheese-making, additional items such as red yeast rice, leftover sake lees, green Chinese leeks, chilis, can be added for different flavors.

Beef rolls are popular recently, but not traditional Fujianese, because of the wheat flour. Same with the bobin scallion pancakes (which are an import from Beijing), are a favorite but not traditional Fujianese. The bobin is pronounced "buo2 bing3". I guess I was going to get a true traditional only cookbook, "with dishes that may be lost in time" kind of book. Instead, it's a "what the current Fujianese eats" type of book. Not bad, but not exactly what I'm looking for.

I am an ethnic Fuzhou girl. My parents are the type who'll rattle off the ingredients quickly and say a pinch of this, a pinch of that, pour it in until it smells right...you know the type. So I was hoping to learn how to make some of the recipes from my childhood.

Most of my dishes were not in there!

- Fishballs - her version does not have meat. Fujianese fishballs have a small core of pork in them. The ones without meat are Cantonese fishballs. And I remember watching the local fishball shop make them -- did not involve any frying!
- Fish maw --> why no recipes with fish maw?
- Other dried fish products --> we use a lot of them for soups. Where is all this stuff?

Disappointing, to say the least.
