A recipe from “God Mat Fra Hele Verden” (Delicious Food From The Whole World) published by Schibsted in 1971
Chinese food is not, as many believe, strong and spicy. It is mild, tasty and light. Typically Chinese dishes can be otherwise characterized in that all the ingredients are small and finely cut and mixed with a sense of what goes well together what flavour and colour are concerned. Incidentally texture also plays a big role, there is always something to “chew” on Chinese food. The vegetables are never too much cooked and thick sauces does not exist. Sauces are thickened lightly with potato starch to provide a smooth and light sauce. The Chinese always use oil for frying, preferably peanut oil or sesame oil. Chinese or Japanese soy, which is black and salt, are an indispensable seasoning, as is ginger. Chinese food should never be left to simmer long, but be cooked quickly and served fresh.
