About the Author

Zhuo Zhao was born and raised in Beijing, where she learned the traditional arts of cooking and healing from her family. After coming to the West and discovering how little was known about these genuine Chinese traditions, she returned to China for two years of intensive research. This book is the product of that research. George Ellis traveled extensively in Asia in the 1970s and 1980s, writing and translating texts on Yoga, Ayurveda, and Naturopathy. He is the author of The Breath of Life: Mastering the Techniques of Pranayama and Qi Gong. Zhuo Zhao and George Ellis met in Beijing in 1985 and married in 1988.


"Zhuo Zhao and George Ellis have taken great pains not only to provide us with an exhaustive (three hundred recipes) compendium of medicinal foods and preparations but have also included chapters on Chinese medical theory, Yin/Yang theory, Five Element theory and an explanation of the Chinese view of illness and its causes. The Healing Cuisine of China is a terrific book to have on hand: the recipes are well-researched and simple to make and they remind us of the tremendous power we have to maintain our own well-being." * Qi, Summer 1999 *
