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.
