  2. 2. Lettuce Lettuce is available in a vast number of varieties, and is either crisp or floppy, growing from a central stalk to form a spherical or lozenge-like head. Most of them have green leaves, some with red tinges, and they all have a delicate, clean flavour. Lettuce is mainly eaten raw in salads, though you can also add them to soups or braise them as a side dish. Crisp leaves work well with robustly flavoured dressings, while the floppier types need to be partnered with something more subtle. Some crisp types include iceberg, romaine and cos etc. The most common floppy lettuces in the UK are round, butter head and little gem.

Hoisin Sauce Lee Kum Kee’s Hoisin Sauce is typically used as a glaze for meat or as a dipping sauce. The word Hoisin is a romanisation of the Chinese word for seafood 海鮮 (pinyin hoi seen), although it does not contain seafood and tends to be made from soybean paste, garlic, chillies and other spices.
  6. 6. 2. Sauces Minced Garlic Lee Kum Kee's Minced Garlic is a useful substitute for fresh garlic in stir-frying, marinating, steaming and all kinds of cooking. XO Sauce Lee Kum Kee’s XO Sauce is an all-purpose condiment made from dried scallops, dried shrimp, red chilli peppers and spices.

Dark Soy Sauce Lee Kum Kee’s premium dark soy sauce is made from selected soybeans. It is naturally brewed according to traditional methods. The flavour and colour of dark soy sauce will enhance the taste and appearance of any dish.
  8. 8. 3. Techniques 1. Marinating lMarinating technique is very important in cooking Chinese dishes. Marination is the process of soaking foods in a seasoned liquid before cooking. 2. Stir-Frying lStir-frying is a technique that when properly executed, foods can be cooked in minutes in very little oil so they retain their natural flavours and textures. Stir frying is a popular Chinese cooking technique for preparing food in a wok: chao炒
  9. 9. 3. Deep-frying Deep frying is a cooking method in which food is submerged in hot oil. This is normally performed with a deep fryer or chip pan; industrially, a pressure fryer or vacuum fryer may be used. It is classified as a dry cooking method because no water is used. Due to the high temperature involved and the high heat conduction of oil, it cooks food extremely quickly; also, if performed properly, deep-frying does not make food excessively greasy. DISAVANTAGES: - Health concerns due to the huge amount of oil used. - Large amounts of waste oil, which must be properly disposed of. - Cooking oil is flammable, and fires may be caused by it igniting at too high a temperature (NEVER EVER try to extinguish an oil fire with water, use ONLY non- water fire extinguishers, by smothering, dry powder [e.g., baking soda, salt] or fire- fighting foam.) - Spilled hot cooking oil can also cause severe burns.
