I own a wok but clearly wasn't using it to its full potential though it is the only skillet I own. I decided to get a cookbook specifically about woks. I was considering either Wok Fast or The Big Book of Wok but ended up getting The Big Book, without having looked through it. I found the introduction and 'general wok theory' to be extremely lacking. They mention which sort of woks to get, but it seems outdated compared to what is available at the present time. There are too pages devoted to 'general wok theory' covering the basics 'albeit, not very well' on stirfrying, steaming, deep frying and smoking foods. The recipes however do look fabulous. There are 365 recipes covering everything except a dessert. The dishes range from fairly traditional Asian dishes to wok recipes with Tex-Mex influences. I haven't tried any yet, but I think I'll be doing something soon. Overall, good looking recipes, but if you are looking for a first book on Woks, which I was, I'd go with Wok Fast.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
