Spice Temple is a collection of renowned chef Neil Perry's signature recipes from his restaurant of the same name, honed after eating his way across China and years of experience mastering the balance of flavours and textures that Chinese cuisine offers.

Neil Perry’s love of Chinese food – first eating it, and then cooking it – goes back to his earliest memories. Since then, he has dedicated himself to mastering its unique balance of flavours and textures, culminating in the Spice Temple journey.

Here, in seductive and sultry surroundings, diners experience fiery heat, silken coolness and numbing spice. From signature pickles that fire up the appetite to classic yum cha dumplings, three-shot chicken, and flathead drowned in heaven-facing chillies and Sichuan peppercorns, these are the authentic tastes of regional China.

I can think of no other chef that understands the nuances of Asian, and in particular Chinese cooking, better than Neil
