2. China's North/South (Wheat/Rice) Food Divide
If you're just starting out cooking Chinese food, or looking for ways to improve your technique and the outcome, here are essential tips that no cook should be without. Try to vary the meat and vegetables in a dish so that there is an interesting variety of flavors, textures, and colors. The Chinese believe it is important to find balance and harmony in every aspect of life, including food. Fresh is best: always use fresh ingredients when possible. Be sure to have everything prepared before you start cooking: the vegetables washed, drained and cut; the meat cut and marinated; the sauces prepared.
What is the deal with Chinese BBQ? I know they eat spare ribs and chicken but is it really barbecued or just grilled. It's actually neither grilled nor barbecued, Doug, but rather roasted. Barbecue, as you know, is a process involving the long immersion of tough meats into a smoke bath, and that's something done at scale pretty much here and nowhere else. I saw not a single open fire kitchen when I was in Hong Kong -- which isn't to say they don't exist. But the kind of Chinese ribs and pork we have all come to love is basically cooked vertically in a tall, hot oven that allows its fat to drip off, and the sweet coating to caramelize in the heat. I wish more American restaurants would adopt the method, rather than using shitty smokerettes that burn nasty little pellets set next to electric coils.
