    Easy, fun, and delicious

    The info, instructions, tips, and recipes have been very helpful! Nothing too complicated or intimidating, which I appreciated* From what I can tell, the recipes seem very close to authentic Chinese recipes, not all "Americanized" or watered down* I have many of Martin's cookbooks, and I love them all! I highly reccommend this one, for sure!

    Yan can cook!

    I was afraid of chinese cooking until I found this book. In true 'For Dummies' fashion it explains chinese cooking so clearly that anyone who wants to learn it will have success. The recipes and instructions are easy to follow. It is an excellent beginning that will give the cook the confidence to try other chinese cookbook authors.

    Lots of Recipes and Variations on Basic Chinese Cuisine

    This cookbook is written by a chef. Contains a lot of recipes with inside tips and hints that only a chef would know but relatively little theory with some cultural aspects. It could've benefited by having a coauthor, such as a food writer.
    In addition, another positive aspect about this book is that Chef Yan points out possible modifications and substitutions on the foods for those of us that does not live near a major Chinese population center (which is most of us) where they sell those fresh produce, fish, seafood, poultry and meat that are undeniably Chinese.
