COOK LIKE A LO­CAL >>

Hong Mui prawn crack­ers

These cook-at-home prawn crack­ers are not only rea­son­ably priced, they’re also fun to cook – drop them into hot oil and watch them ex­pand.

Asian greens

Choy sum, tat­soi and pak choi. Steam, sim­mer or throw into a stir-fry. These greens add a clean fresh­ness to Chi­nese meals, bal­anc­ing the aro­mat­ics and heat.

Sichuan pep­per­corns

Per­fect in mari­nades and sauces, these are packed with the numb­ing spice that plays on your taste buds. Be care­ful not to use too many – the prickly sen­sa­tion lasts a while on the palate.

Bam­boo steamer

A bam­boo steamer is in­valu­able but do buy one that is large enough to fit what you need into it. Al­ter­na­tively, take your Chi­nese feast to the next level and steam some dumplings (you can ei­ther buy frozen ones or make your own, find recipes on bbc­good­food.com).

Juli­enne peeler

Use­ful for creat­ing thin strips of veg­eta­bles and gin­ger and much faster than us­ing a knife.
