This critically-acclaimed indie recipe anthology, one of The Chicago Tribune's best cookbooks of the year, celebrates the culinary diversity of global Chinese cuisine with hand-illustrated recipes from top chefs around the world. The Cleaver Quarterly reached out to 40 chefs, asking each to contribute one restaurant-quality recipe that reflected their deep connection to Chinese cuisine. Each recipe was assigned to a different illustrator. The artists were challenged to use visual storytelling to bring the dish to life – while integrating the full recipe text into the illustration. Eclecticism is the guiding principle, with every flip of the page offering the reader a sense of surprise and delight..
