This is a listing of articles/recipes that will be appearing in FOOD AND COOKING OF THE MIDDLE KINGDOMS.

This listing is just getting started. More entries are to come. (The cookbook will contain at least the fifty recipes below, as well as a similar number of articles on the general MK food scene.)

Recipes are tagged with the initials of the book or short work in which they appear. Recipes and articles that have already been written and posted are linked to.

If you have a request for a recipe for food you’ve seen in one of the MK books, or another query, please leave it in a comment to this post. Thanks!
