For centuries, Chinese medicinal herb cooking has been passed down from generation to generation. Uniquely, the dishes please the palate and simultaneously prevent sickness, heal, and maintain health. It has always been an important part of Chinese medicine, and continues to be popular in the Chinese culture. This cookbook has been created to bring an expanded 'eat healthy' awareness to the public. It emphasises the compatibility of the medicinal herbs and various food ingredients; and combines thousands of years of accumulated medicinal herb cooking with the flavours of traditional food cooking. Further nutritional and pharmacological considerations have been provided as an aid in identifying specific meals for specific health needs.
