The Gift of Chinese Cooking
Greetings, friends of The Mala Market
It's a golden age for Chinese cooking in America, with yet another example being a banner season for new Chinese cookbooks. We've got not one, not two, but three new cookbooks this month that aim to make Chinese home-cooking as second nature as any other food you cook.
Two of these gorgeous books are from our beloved affiliates Omnivore's Cookbook and The Woks of Life, who have already done so much to make us all into Chinese home cooks, and one is an important addition to the canon focusing on Chinese vegan cooking. Interestingly, they all feature Sichuan dishes on their covers, but each of the books spans China's regional cuisines.
We discount all of our books from the list price when purchased with the ingredients to cook from them, and we've made that easier than ever for you with our new Chinese Essentials Pantry Collection. Sourced from across China, the products in this collection are the go-to ingredients for cooking most regional Chinese food, including American Chinese. We've applied the same standards to them as we do to our flagship Sichuan brands: They are top-of-the-line, heritage products with centuries of tradition behind them.
We know that most of you, dear customers, are fans of Sichuan and other fiery Chinese food, but many of your friends and family may not be. So we've made it simple—one click—to give the gift of Chinese cooking to anyone! With this non-spicy, premium pantry collection and a cookbook, they'll have all they need to get started.

P.S. For those waiting and wondering, our most recent container of goodies is still inching its way across the country to us by rail, with unknown arrival date. Supply chain? Still much less reliable than it was pre-pandemic.
