This practical approach includes the basic information you need to personalize your diet through every season. Bring traditional Chinese medicine fundamentals of balance—yin and yang—to the flavours on your plate and the energies in your body. With easy-to-find ingredients and helpful tips, you’ll master recipes like Roasted Carrot-Ginger Soup, Miso-Honey-Butter Roasted Chicken, Penne with Arugula Pesto, and more. Inside The Chinese Medicine Cookbook, you’ll find: Master the basics— Learn the essential philosophies of traditional Chinese medicine from this easy-to-understand introduction. Eat with the seasons—Explore dishes specifically chosen to complement the seasons, with chapters for spring, summer, fall, and winter. 65+ delicious recipes—Enjoy a variety of nourishing foods and beverages for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, and dessert. The Chinese Medicine Cookbook will put joy on your table (and into your spirit) for every meal. Honey Miso Roasted Chicken? BRING IT ON!!! Chinese and Eastern medicine is such a hot topic these days and any recipes that taste great and can "heal" are amazing! The book is well set out and the introduction was clear and concise in its philosophy - the recipes are so yummy looking and I enjoyed the fact that the ingredients were not too expensive to cook with. Great book! As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣

    Prior to picking up this book I had never heard of "Chinese medicine food." I literally did not know what to expect. Thankfully, the entire first part of this book is dedicated to basic concepts of Chinese medicine food therapy, the five elements and flavors, eating with the seasons, and other crucial principals. Once I knew more about what Chinese medicine food was, I got more jazzed about trying it out. Part two contains all the recipes and is broken into seasons.

Thankfully, the entire first part of this book is dedicated to basic concepts of Chinese medicine food therapy, the five elements and flavors, eating with the seasons, and other crucial principals. Once I knew more about what Chinese medicine food was, I got more jazzed about trying it out. Part two contains all the recipes and is broken into seasons. Since we're in summer I've only played around with those recipes, although I've looked ahead to other seasons and can't wait to try out more! Some recipes I've attempted include: vegan Caesar salad, egg drop soup with seaweed and mushroom, and salt and pepper roasted green beans. My only beef with the book is that there aren't a ton of pictures and the there is a lot of meat and fish recipes. Don't get me wrong, there are vegan and vegetarian recipes (which many cookbooks don't have), I'm just biased. I don't know how much I believe in all the concepts (eating certain things in certain seasons), but I do know that there are some tasty recipes!

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy from NetGalley and Althea Press for my unbiased opinion of the book. I remember a phrase somewhere they say "heal thy self" this is the book to do it with. It takes a comprehensive holistic approach to the seasons and mind body and spirit. When you cover all the basis you begin to have a healthier more mindful and conscious you. The book goes into detail in the beginning chapters on how to start the process and what it all means for us newbies.

I tried Spanish Clams with Chorizo, Chinese Longevity Noodles with Shiitake Mushrooms, Turmeric Chicken all of them were delightful. The recipes are well laid out and easy to follow with not a lot of high-priced ingredients. I cannot wait to cook my way through this book during each season. I will be recommending this book to all my family and friends.

    Love Chinese food and have taken several classes in Chinese cooking to learn how to fix my favorite dishes at home. Nevertheless. this book contained some recipes that were new to me and also provided some background that i was not familiar with. In the background section, it introduced me to the yin yang of food, the five flavors and eating with the seasons; all of which provided new insights on how to use Chinese food to boost health and well-being. Add into that new recipes such as Szechuan Z Love Chinese food and have taken several classes in Chinese cooking to learn how to fix my favorite dishes at home.

I recommend this book to any fan of Asian food in general and in particular to people that like to explore new Chinese recipes and use food to support their health. I received a copy from the publisher.

    This cookbook contained quite interesting seasonal food balancing information I was completely unaware of prior to reading. I appreciated the theory broken down into short, basic concepts I could readily understand and follow. Facts provided about the benefits of individual ingredients following each recipe were also helpful. The recipes are super-quick, easy, and sound tasty.

I am a pescatarian (although I don't eat all seafood) so all of the veggie, fish, and seafood dishes presented were of particular interest to me while I ignored those with meat or chicken. I am going to follow the author's links to her site and others she provided to read more about this method of eating.

    This is a beautiful book about using Chinese medicine in your cooking to bring balance to yourself through the art of yin and yang. It is filled with delicious recipes. I would highly recommend it. I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy free of charge. This is my honest and unbiased opinion of it.
