From Lokshen to Lo Mein
The Jewish Love Affair with Chinese Food From Lokshen to Lo Mein is one of three nominees in the 2007 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards!
Some classic Jewish foods are analogous to Chinese versions--hence the title, From Lokshen to Lo Mein. Lokshen are Jewish noodles used in many recipes, an analog to Lo Mein noodles used in Chinese cooking.
Along with Don Siegel’s favorite Chinese kosher recipes, the author includes some comments on the connection of Jews and Chinese culture, where to get kosher Chinese ingredients, a few jokes about Jews and Chinese food, a short section on what 'kosher' means for those unfamiliar with Jewish dietary laws, and digressions on Chinese cooking techniques and products.
