A Letter to Our Email Subscribers
You may have signed up at either The Mala Market, our online shop for Sichuan heritage products and Chinese specialty ingredients, or at The Mala Market blog, our trove of well-tested Chinese recipes. In either case, you will receive only one or two emails a month, and they will feature recipes for regional Chinese food, some food and travel writing, and news about our products. Our ultimate goal is to live up to this feedback from one of our subscribers:
"I love seeing your emails arrive. Just the best. Why? First, you don’t overwhelm me with daily or more posts. And, your information is timely, interesting, educational, and just plain fun." ~~ Claudia, Palm Springs
Whether you're new to cooking Chinese food or an old hand, start by searching our recipes by ingredient for an introduction to Sichuan specialty products, how to prep, use and store them, and numerous recipes that feature each one.
The recipes come from four mother-daughter teams with roots in China and include both homestyle cooking and restaurant dishes adapted to home kitchens—from Sichuan, Yunnan, Jiangnan and beyond. You’ll also find stories from immigrant, first-gen and adoptive families and their tips for finally making Chinese food at home that matches up to eating in China. We’re glad you’ve joined us!
