S1 E1: Homecooking, Chinese Style

Homecooking, Chinese Style

Host Christopher Kimball visits world traveler and cookbook author Fuchsia Dunlop in London to learn about the Chinese approach to cooking. He learns how to get perfectly cooked chicken every time by focusing on the meat, not the skin. Back at Milk Street, those techniques get put into action as Milk Street Cook Catherine Smart shows Chris how to make Chinese white-cooked chicken with ginger-soy dressing.

Next, Chris demonstrates why an Asian cleaver just may have the edge over the ubiquitous western chef's knife. The show ends with a little sizzle on set as Milk Street Cook Matthew Card shows how to make hot oil-flashed chard with ginger, scallions and chili at home.
