There are more than 1 billion Chinese people on earth and as you might expect, many of them are amazing cooks.
Chinese food culture is so rich and varied it could take a lifetime to understand it properly, that’s why we love these Chinese food blogs, their dedicated owners have helped us to refine our understanding of Chinese food.
We think that you’ll find our picks for the best Chinese food blogs very useful too!
Appetite For China
Diana Kuan is a Chinese woman based in New York and when she’s not blogging about Chinese food, she’s teaching it at college.
Her blog is a nice mix of the traditional and her own modern take on Chinese food.
This food blogger isn’t a chef, Kian Lam Kho is, in fact, a software engineer by day but there’s no doubt in our minds that if he published a cookbook, it would make our list of the best Chinese cookbooks, easily.
He did apprentice with a chef for 6 months and his journey from adventurous amateur to something more is brilliant to read.
Yi was raised in Chongqing before he emigrated to the United States and his Chinese cuisine is very much based around the city he grew up in.
We like that he solicits contributions from the wider Chinese community too.
China Sichuan Food
Sichuan is famous for its hot and peppery approach to food and while it’s not as spicy as, say, Hainanese food, you do need to watch how much chili you’re adding to the mix at times.
There’s no denying though that this blog will teach you all you need to know about delicious Sichuan food.
The Woks Of Life
We love the name of this blog, if it were a cookbook, it might even make it to our top cookbooks of all time for the sheer ingenuity of it all.
It’s not a trick though, The Woks of Life is packed with tasty Chinese food that you won’t be able to resist.
Chinese Healthy Cooking
Chinese food is much healthier than most people in the West seem to give it credit for and the obese are a rare sight on Chinese streets still, though the new generation is growing up on fast food and things may change.
But Chinese Healthy Cooking accentuates the positive aspects of Chinese food and focuses on them.
There’s no compromise on taste though, everything on this site is wonderful to eat.
Cooking Follow Me
Daniel’s collection of Chinese recipes from all over the Chinese speaking world may be second to none, on the homepage alone, you’ll find links to more than 100 tasty dishes.
Everything here is prepared with love and enthusiasm and the photography is absolutely great, if you’re not hungry after visiting Cooking Follow Me, you must have just eaten.
Wok & Kin
Wok & Kin’s main focus is Chinese food with a little slice of Vietnamese food on the side. We’re fine with that as Vietnam has a rich food heritage which complements China’s, neatly.
Their noodle soup recipes are among the best we’ve ever tried and our only complaint is that Jeanette isn’t publishing new ideas 24 hours a day. Yum.
My Chinese Home Kitchen
There’s a focus on story, history and culture as much as there is on food at My Chinese Home Kitchen and every single recipe comes to life on its pages.
It’s a good site to settle down with on a cold Winter evening as you can easily lose hours browsing the amazing Chinese food within.
