Item description for New Shanghai Cuisine: Bridging the Old and the New (Mc Cuisine) by Jereme Leung...

As we enter a new millennium, the Shanghainese are re-establishing their presence on the international restaurant scene, harnessing their natural talent for fashioning spectacular, larger-than-life paeans, to pleasure. Dining in Shanghai is an exhilarating experience because whether you're people watching at Three on The Bund, delighting in slivers of tea smoked eggs slathered in caviar at Whampoa Club, jostling with families at Bao Luo or steeping yourself in Zen minimalism at Shintori, you're left in no doubt that you're in Shanghai. Its in the energy, the ambience and the people. Each dining destination may be dazzlingly different and stupendously stylish, yet its the frisson that the city thrillingly creates - as it almost casually melds a pinch of the East with a dash of the West, a measure of history with a shot of the future - that is so unique and intoxicating.

It is only natural that a contemporary Chinese, new Shanghainese gustatory revolution should take seed in this city of acute contrast and sublime fusion. The desire to push the envelope, without losing its sense of self, has always been at the heart of this city's fiesty spirit. Shanghai is a city like no other. It possesses an aesthetic, a style, a way of living that enraptures both the heart and mind. To sup at Shanghai's table is to savour the pleasures of life itself.

In New Shanghai Cuisine: Bridging the Old and the New, Chef Jereme Leung explores the rich culinary heritage of Shanghai and re-interprets it, offering unique and contemporary presentations of some of Shanghai's classic recipes. His respect for tradition and understanding of the fundamentals behind each dish as he recreates these recipes have won him praise from some of Shanghai's most respected culinary figures. The classic dishes he has re-created include drunken chicken, Shanghai tea-smoked eggs and glutinous red dates (nuo mi hong zao), which are all regular items on his menu at Whampoa Club in Shanghai.

Reviews - What do customers think about New Shanghai Cuisine: Bridging the Old and the New (Mc Cuisine)?

Disappointing  Jun 28, 2008
If I could have given this book no stars I would have. This book was a real disappointment. I have an extensive collection of Chinese cookbooks, fusion books, etc. Usually I feel that if I even get one or two recipes out of a cookbook it is worth the price, but I'm sorry I spent the money on this one. Enough said.
