Twenty-four of the country's minority groups call Yunnan home, each retaining their own traditions. Stretching from the Himalayan plateau down to the subtropics, Yunnan encompasses extremes from alpine meadows to rainforest. It is the most diverse region in China culturally, biologically, and meteorologically. On a culinary level, this means Yunnan is one of the most delicious places on earth. The region is famous for its mushrooms, hams, pickles, edible flowers, its use of potatoes, and its love of chillies and Sichuan peppercorns. Yunnan's food is exciting and unfamiliar, but much of it is actually quite easy to make, using simple techniques already familiar to Western cooks. Each chapter covers a different area featuring its cardinal recipes such as Tibetan momo dumplings, Dai cucumber salad with peanuts, the famed "crossingthe- bridge" noodles of Kunming, Eastern-style fried rice with ham, potatoes, and peas, and roasted eggplant salad from near the Burmese border. Complete with profiles of local cooks, artisans, and farmers, as well as breathtaking on-location photography, Cooking South of the Clouds takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the land of Shangri-La and introduces a new world of flavours.

Guarding the Three Treasures

The Chinese Way of Health

Author: Daniel P. Reid

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9780743409063

Category: Medicine, Chinese

Page: 484

View: 9479

'The body is the temple of life. Energy is the force of life. Spirit is the governor of life. If one of them goes off balance, all three are damaged. When the spirit takes command, the body naturally follows it, and this arrangement benefits all Three Treasures. When the body leads the way, the spirit goes along, and this harms all Three Treasures' - Wen-tzu Classic (first century BC) Inspired by the enthusiastic response to the TAO OF HEALTH, SEX AND LONGEVITY, GUARDING THE THREE TREASURES is a companion volume which can be read independently as an introduction to the philosophy and practice of Taoist health care. Bestselling author Dan Reid acquaints the reader with the three treasures of Taoist medicine - essence, energy and spirit. The Way of Tao is the way of harmony with nature, a dynamic balance of yin and yang. Maintaining this balance in your own mind and body will strengthen your immune system and build up your general health. Whereas Western medicine attempts to fix the affected body part or organ when something goes wrong, Chinese medicine takes a holistic and preventative approach and lets you take charge, through diet and exercises, of your mental and physical wellbeing. GUARDING THE THREE TREASURES will steer you onto the 'Great Highway' of health, longevity and spiritual discovery.
