- Know the basic ingredients in cooking in Mandarin
- Write a recipe in Chinese characters
As you may have known, some words of the ingredients share the same root. For example, the word油yóu (oil) and酱油jiàng yóu (soya sauce) both have the root word油yóu (oil). In details, the verbs of ingredients are:
材料 cái liào (ingredients)
油 yóu (oil)
盐 yán (salt)
酱油 jiàng yóu (soya sauce)
醋 cù (vinegar)
糖 táng (sugar)
调料 tiáo liào (seasoning)
料酒 liào jiǔ (cooking wine)
大蒜 dà suàn (garlic)
芝麻 zhī má (sesame)
馅 xiàn (filling)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning this topic.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose 3-cooking ingredients.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
