So not great at identifying authentic Chinese regional cooking but I have to say Craig Claiborne's treatment of Chinese cuisine was really trying to move beyond the neighborhood Chinese restaurant and into the home kitchen. I'm not sure he succeeded but his goal was one of demystifying food which always makes me happy.
Craig Claiborne was a restaurant critic, food writer and former food editor of the New York Times. He was the author of numerous cookbooks and an autobiography. Over the course of his career, he made many contributions to gastronomy and food writing in the United States.More about Craig Claiborne...
