You may have other culinary goals if you're in Manchester, England, but put Sweet Mandarin on your "to-visit" list in case you feel like deviating from regional fare. Twin sisters and Sweet Mandarin owners Helen and Lisa Tse put modern Chinese food on the map with their popular restaurant, and recently released their first cookbook. Mango pudding is the perfect way to end a homemade Chinese feast.

Mango pudding is probably the most popular Chinese dessert. This is delicious served cold and perfect to prepare in advance for a party.
