I found the recipes in this book to be really tasty and easy to follow. It has a nice section on cooking techniques and ingredients. The recipes are nicely laid out and worded so they are so easy to understand. There are also a lot of photographs to illustrate the process. The only problem I have found is that the rural grocery stores near me don't stock a lot of the Asian ingredients listed, but there are lot of recipes that I can still do with a limited store selectionWas this review helpful?

As a Chinese-American who's Asian food palate is hard to please, his book is a fabulous resource for neophytes of Asian cuisine. I found many of the hard-to-prepare dishes that are easier to make with the help of the step-by-step recipes and the ample supply of pictures.Was this review helpful?

Wonderful Recipes & A Beautiful Book!!!
i just picked this book up at my local B&N Bookstore. i've been in search of a good Chinese cookbook with PICTURES. let me tell you that this book is gorgeous, the pictures are beautiful and they provide pictures of the final product and a few steps in between as well. it's GREAT! oh yeah...and the recipes are great as well...i think i'm an adequate judge of that because i am of asian descent. i recently moved out of my mom's place and now am learning to cook on my own. though i never picked up the skill of cooking family style (or cooking at all), for all of my 23-years i have been a very healthy eater and connoisseur on chinese cooking. after all...i've been eating chicken feet in black bean and garlic (a dim sum dish) since my teething baby days!!! This book includes authentic family style dishes and modern pan-asian recipes, too!!! did i mention the book is printed on glossy pages?! Get this book!!! It's a BARGAIN!!! Enjoy!!! =)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
