Hailed as a modern classic and one of the greatest cookbooks of all time upon its initial publication twenty years ago, The Food of Sichuan has now been updated in a sumptuous new edition, with over fifty new recipes evocative of the region and its culinary singularity. Revisiting the areas that informed her gastronomic journey two decades ago, Dunlop has succeeded in revitalising a seminal text of the cookery genre.
‘No one explains the intricacies of Sichuan food like Fuchsia Dunlop. This book remains my bible for the subject’ — Jay Rayner
A fully revised and updated edition of Fuchsia Dunlop’s landmark book on Sichuan cookery.

At home, guided by Fuchsia’s clear instructions, you will be able to recreate Sichuanese classics such as Mapo tofu, Twice-cooked pork and Gong Bao chicken, or try your hand at a traditional spread of cold dishes comprising Bang bang chicken, Numbing-and-hot dried beef, Spiced cucumber salad and Green beans in ginger sauce.
With spellbinding writing on the culinary and cultural history of Sichuan and accompanied by gorgeous travel and food photography, The Food of Sichuan is a captivating insight into one of the world’s greatest cuisines.
