There is a saying that Western culture is born of the relationship between man and woman, while Chinese culture has grown from the enjoyment of food. China is a nation of gourmets, and many of these gastronomes are also literary figures.
Collected in this book are essays on the art of Chinese cuisine composed by writers and scholars of the 20th century. Some of the authors are gourmets themselves, both in name and fact.

On Diet

Though Chinese may have learned from Westerners quite a few theories and approaches on how to appropriately arrange a banquet, the Chinese still have numerous and famous recipes to teach Westerners, such as medicinal cooking, or the cooking of common dishes (chicken cooked with Chinese cabbage).
