The Book of Sichuan Chili Crisp
Jing Gao (CA)
Explore the “not traditional but personal” Sichuan flavours of chef, entrepreneur, and internet sensation Fly By Jing's savoury, spicy chili crisp through 85 hot recipes for everything from drinks to dessert.
Born in Chengdu and raised everywhere, chef and entrepreneur Jing Gao has introduced America to the hot, tingly sensation of chili crisp and the Sichuan flavours that inspire it. Now, in her first cookbook, she shows you that nearly every dish can be elevated with Sichuan flavours, and she takes you on a unique journey from the Sichuan province to your own kitchen stove, all while sharing her personal take and reflections on this storied cuisine.
Rooted in tradition but made for the modern kitchen, these 85 recipes invite you to explore the nuances of Sichuan flavours and try new ingredients. With gorgeous photography and punchy writing, Jing shows you how to incorporate these flavours in just about everything, including:
Snacks like Zhong Dumplings and Deviled Tea Eggs
Mains like Hongshao Carnitas Tacos, Fish Fragrant Crispy Eggplant, and Spicy Scallion Oil Noodles
Desserts and drinks like Chili Crisp Sundae with Fish Sauce Caramel Brittle, Poached Pear in Sichuan Pepper Syrup, and Baijiu Negroni
The Book of Sichuan Chili Crisp is about chili crisp, but that’s not all it is. It’s a story of resilience, breaking free from tradition, and writing new narratives. Grab yourself a jar of Sichuan Chili Crisp and dive in!
