Kegan Paul International, Jan 3, 2000 - Cooking - 715 pages
This is a complete translation of the medieval Chinese dietary Yin-Shan cheng-yao (1330) with full notes and supporting text, along with a monograph-sized introduction. The Chinese original is the first dietary manual of its kind in Chinese history, and is of particular interest on account of substantial Mongolian, Turkic, and general Islamic influences. The translation makes an important work for the Chinese herbal tradition generally available makes an important work of the chinese herbal tradition generally available, placed in its historical and cultural context, and also makes a significant contribution to the study of traditional East Asian foodways in a broader context. The translation is the first of its kind, and will substantially alter previously held views on Chinese interactions with non-Chinese cultures, including China's conquerors and their Turkic allies.
