We'd all like to think we know authentic Chinese recipes yet Chinese cuisine is a vast and complex topic to accurately describe. With a long entrenched history in both the country and across the world we all have our own spin on Chinese food that we personally know and love.

Whilst Chinese food might be a large and complex topic hailing from one of the largest countries in the world, Chinese ingredients conversely can be minimal and simple and the cooking techniques fast. Deep frying, flash frying and steaming are three simple cooking techniques championed by Chinese cuisine. Many Chinese dishes have speed on their sides being ready in less than half an hour.

We have lined up ten tried and tested favourites that we all love to keep you covered on a night in. From crunchy spring rolls and soft wontons to classic egg fried rice, and stir fry’s for both meat eaters and vegetarians. We can vouch for their deliciousness and we’ll leave their authenticity for the experts to decide.
