In most large cities you will find a Chinatown: a hyperdynamic, buzzing, exciting enclave, alive with exotic colours, sounds, smells, flavours and ingredients. To many of us these ingredients will look, smell and sound mysterious: Szechuan peppercorns, dried tangerine peel, lotus flowers, liquorice root, cinnamon bark and yellow rock sugar to name a few. Chinatown explores some of these magical and exotic ingredients, combining them with fresh produce to create a simple but intensely flavoured cuisine.
