5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, so simple to follow. 28 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This is one of the best chinese cookery books I have used. The instructions are very easy to follow and the ingredients used are readily available in most supermarkets. The results are very representative of chinese restaurant food. The recipes are also generally quick, ideal for a busy lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Investment in a Cookbook Series 13 April 2010
By R. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
The entire "Cookshelf" line is fabulous but the one I've used the most is this one, Chinese. The hardback book's format is small, about 4.5" by 5". I think there may be a large, paperback version available as well. Every single recipe has a picture and the instructions fit on a single page. Nothing is complicated, though if you are a brand new chef, be warned this series does not go into details on things like how to slice, dice, and mince, etc. That said, there are some Cook's Tips and variations, which are helpful. Measurements are in both metric and standard.

The reason why I rely on this book is, every single recipe has produced an extremely palatable plate suitable for almost any audience. Is it Yan Can Cook? No. But it does have The Best Sweet and Sour Pork (not that awful, greasy, soggy junk you get on the steam tables at buffets).
2.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read. 2 Jun 2013

Print is too small which makes it difficult to read. I would not recommend it. It needs a larger font.
