This new book is part of Shanachie Publishing’s cross-cultural series focusing on China. We are working in a partnership with Chinese Wellbeing, the Liverpool, UK, based charity that for over a quarter of a century has provided outstanding health and social care services to the Chinese community of Liverpool and wider Merseyside, and beyond.
It is being published to mark the 25th anniversary of this highly respected charity. It will be a lavish hardback photo-essay book focusing on Chinese cuisine in Liverpool and wider afield. And will be a celebration of both Chinese food and culture.
It will contain about 25 mouth-watering recipes and will feature a number of top local Chinese chefs whose culinary expertise spans the varied styles of Chinese cuisine. It will also feature well-known local non-Chinese chefs giving us their perspective on Chinese food.
We are inviting Chinese community leaders and Liverpool personalities from the worlds of showbiz, politics, business and the arts to share their passion for a particular Chinese dish.
The book will also trace the long history of Chinese people in Liverpool and the city’s close ties with Shanghai.
Chinese Wellbeing is inviting its friends and associates to support this truly unique book by sponsoring its publication. It will be published in two formats: a ‘coffee table’ hardback edition that will retail at £30 and a distinctive collector’s limited edition of 250, numbered and presented in a luxurious slipcase that will only be available to special friends and partners.
We invite you to join us in this creative celebration of Chinese Wellbeing’s 25th anniversary

The late Chikhao Tseng (Zeng Zhi Gao) was a well-known personality in Liverpool and in the Chinese community. He hailed originally from Sichuan Province but came to Liverpool when he was just a boy of 16. His nickname was ‘San’ as no one could pronounce his Chinese name. He ran a café close to Liverpool docks for many years.
