Overview

With the abundance of fresh produce readily available today, cooking Asian food has never been easier. Good Chinese and Far Eastern food need not be confined to restaurants-these recipes have all been adapted for the Western kitchen, and the majority of dishes are quick and easy to prepare.

Many dishes are stir-fried-a technique that is not only extremely efficient, but healthy too. With its cooking time and use of wholesome ingredients, this method of cooking is ideal for today's modern lifestyles, enabling the busy cook to prepare meals in minutes without sacrificing flavor and nutritional values.

The techniques section provides clear, ho-to advice on flavorings and spices, fresh produce, cooking equipment, preparing ingredients and basic recipes. There are helpful tips throughout to ensure that all the recipes are easy to follow-even for those entirely new to the delights of Asian cooking.

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 selection

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.

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!!! =)
