A delightful collection of great tasting recipes designed for all occasions for Food Lovers and Feng Shui Enthusiasts.
By Clarice Georgia V. Chan and Malcolm Smith.
Feng Shui Gourmet gives the reader a different perspective to the kitchen and cooking in it. In the Chinese culture, and according to the theories of Feng Shui, the kitchen is much more than a space to prepare meals. The kitchen is considered one of the areas that can improve the family’s heath and wealth. Feng Shui masters often stress the importance of having a well-designed kitchen where the oven, hob and washbasin have specific positions.
The concept of Yin and Yang and the five elements are the fundamental theory of Feng Shui and occupies the heart of Chinese philosophy. It is believed to be the essence of nature, where everything is in a perpetual state of change. According to the practice of traditional Chinese medicine, the balance of Yin and Yang in the body is key to better health. You will find that the recipes and information in this book attempt to incorporate and introduce this balance into your cooking and kitchen.
On the other hand, the recipes and information in this book do not focus on Chinese herbs or their therapeutic benefits. All the recipes have been tried and prepared in several home kitchens to make sure that they can be done at home. We have also included a detailed preparation guide for each recipe to help you prepare these delicious dishes. The term Feng Shui Value I use in this book are my personal choice of words use to describe the elements.
