« The Chinese Pantry: Introduction | Main | "À la Bonne Franquette" »


Fabulous. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :-)

Thanks for the lesson. I love cooking Chinese and so often there is no English on the packages or it is totally nondescript (like: red peppers). I will be coming back to this post before I head out to the Asia Grocery.

Wei Chuan series of cookbooks are awesome for making authentic chinese dishes~ I have around 8 of them specializing in various regions, and they are excellent (recipes are in both English and Chinese) there are few typos and they are pretty odvious.

This is great! I have a blog devoted exclusively to condiments and I have only referred a couple times to Asian condiments, mostly because I don't cook with them as often as I'd like to. But I'm am so excited to learn about pickled chiles on this post. I love all things pickled and then you get all the health benefits with the chile.

Condiment Grrl: I particularly like the chopped salted chiles. I could eat them straight out of the jar.

Love this You ROCK - well cook haha

Just curious any plans...or revisits to anything from Africa South Africa in full flavour...

This is a great idea. I do quite a bit of North African cooking for ourselves, and on occasion I tackle Ethiopian. (I have some North African and a few Ethiopian posts hiding in the archives.) But it's been a long, long time since I've made a West African mafé. And actually, we do have a South African cookbook, though I haven't made anything from it. So yeah... some African pantry and recipe posts are a great idea.

This is an exceptionally good website, very artistic and literate, and well laid out. I love your writing and your guests' comments.

This article was especially interesting as I am researching the possibility of setting up an online store that sells the authentic Sichuan products Dunlop recommends in Land of Plenty. My biggest frustration in her recipes has been finding those ingredients, and I know I'm not alone in that regard. And many folks don't have a nearby Asian grocery store. I have not had real good luck with the sources Dunlop lists in the back of her book.

I'm looking to purchase on line, the chili bean paste you labeled "example #2". Do you know where I can find it?

@Lisa: we've never had to look for online sources for these items; we've been fortunate enough to live in a place with multiple Asian grocery stores. There's a lot of discussion about it online, but a quick look didn't show any online sources. If you find one, please let us know.

Its good to have a general idea of what I'm buying at a store where I can't read anything.. Thanks for the information. Kudos

spent the weekend learning about chiles. I was hunting for the facing heaven chili pepper. it took awhile to find this. your link and the photo of the package was exactly what I needed.

I've found several specialty stores in the area but the fresh peppers aren't really labelled well and its hard to know what to buy.

Specialty vegetables are all obvious but the specialty peppers and some of the substitutions aren't. A lot of us only know what these things look like dried.

Is there a photo FAQ that would have the top 5 peppers for italian, mexican, chinese, indian and thai cooking. something that chefs put together. that would make this all so much easier.

just thinking and wanted to ask.

followed some of the substitution dialogue but people are not all in agreement. a photo trail guide for the top peppers from a good chef would help a lot.

Where are you located? We haven't been able to find facing heaven chilis in a couple years here in Ann Arbor, so we're actually trying to grow some from seed this year.

Great overview of the different products. I'm sure I'll be linking back to this post sometime when I need to explain it all!

hey joe

I'm in Atlanta. it took me about 140 miles of driving all over town but I finally found an exact match for the peppers.

thank you so much for putting up the photo. even the dry ones are really hard to find.

I can send you a couple of packages. they had 10 or so in the store and this was in a really big market.

just send me a note.

all the best

- the source in ATL was hong kong super market norcross ga.

Oh yes, we'd love some! You don't have an email linked, so I can't message you directly -- please email me, mine's linked from my name!

I found a jar of a really good chili paste at the Chinese grocery in Madison Heights. The brand was Spicy King and the first thing that caught my eye was that it had actual Sichuan peppercorns in it.
