    I am the new chinese masterchef

    What really sets this book apart from a regular run of the mill cookbook is that it has an introductory and background section of each chapter to explain the culture behind the dishes and how it was prepared in the 18th century or which ever B.C.E decade it originated in. The book also explains the type of cooking utensils that are used in traditional chinese cooking so that you are prepared and know how to use a wok if you have never used one before. I really liked the chapters on tea and different types of dim sum, chow mein, Congee and kung pao chicken. Now that I have learned how easy it is to make these dishes following these step to step directions I will no longer be paying for chinese takeout. So do yourself a favor if you love chinese food as much as I do and really are a novice chef who is literally too busy to cook extensive meals during the week this book is great for you.

    Nice Cookbook for Authentic Chinese Cuisine!

    The recipes, were delicious and very easy to follow. Chinese food, is my most favorite cuisine to eat on a lazy night and I don’t like too many restaurants because of the msg in their food. I always thought that Chinese food, was impervious for home cooking, but after moving to an area where the best Chinese was subpar, I decided I should try. The only advice that stuck with me was, to get everything ready before you start cooking as the recipes go quick. One car trip to the Asian grocery for a few staple ingredients and everything else has been a quick pick from the grocery store from here all out. I am now more comfortable with the various sauces and spices chefs on television just wings it most of the time. The recipes are easy to follow and well-explained. The resulting dishes actually tasted pretty good! I have experienced with many substitutions, and the recipes lend themselves very easily to get used to on what’s on hand/available. I recommend this book. From the recipe instructions to the explanation of ingredients, I was able to make something tasty for dinner from day one.
