Photos: Chef Liu's Authentic Chinese Cuisine

This week's review took me out to Aurora to experience the Szechuan cooking of Chef Liu's Authentic Chinese Cuisine, a restaurant that opened last year after Liu Zeng Qun left Imperial Chinese Restaurant to do his own thing. In addition to a meal, I got a primer from one of the restaurant's staff members, who described the intricacies of the region's cuisine while I ate.

Feast your eyes on the highlights of his lesson.
