I got rid of my copy of this cookbook years ago but a couple of recipes stick in my mind. If anyone would be kind enough to just post the ingredients (I can probably figure out/remember the method) I would be so grateful.

Wild Rice Salad with a dressing that includes balsamic vinegar and Sichuan peppercorns

Cold noodles with a dressing that includes an oil flavored with chiles, preserved black beans, and orange zest (I need the oil ingredients and the dressing ingredients)
