Here’s something to add to the annals of Chinese food in America: this Mother Earth News guide to subsisting on Chinese food (or “CF” as our writer puts it) for less than $10 a month. Yes, we’re talking 1971 dollars – but keep in mind that’s still only some sixty dollars today. How does he do it: see for yourself. (Disclaimer: mother earth is in the details here. It’s THOROUGH.)
This was way ahead of its time. I wrote my first cookbook in 1971, and ended up having a huge argument with my editor over the recipe for Hoisin Chicken. Where, she wanted to know, were readers going to be able to get such an exotic sauce? Did I have any substitutes?
