Cookbook - Cooking the Chinese Way, by Nina Froud, 1963
"Chinese culinary methods differ from the European chiefly by the fact that boiling as such is practically never resorted to. Food is stewed, braised, semi-fried, deep-fried, roasted - both meat and vegetables are often 'scrambled' - but, with the exception of rice, never, never just plain boiled." Pg. 10
