1.0 out of 5 stars A book that is out of fashion 15 April 2014
By Kenny - Published on
The book was published in 1976, and the new edition did little to justify that now is 2014, when readers are far more sophisticated than 40 years ago, and high quality Chinese food of difference regional variety are much more assessable in big North American cities like New York, LA, San Francisco, not to mention Vancouver and Toronto, and Chinese groceries can be found almost in every midsize US cities.

The authored learn her recipes nearly half century ago in Hong Kong. Today you will have a hard time to find half of such dishes in Hong Kong because they fall out-of-fashion. The other half of recipes are things that no Chinese family will ever cook by themselves in their family kitchen, for example, Peking Duck, Cantonese style barbecue pork, and dim sums, unless they are professional trained cooks with all commercial grade appliance.

Do yourself a favor and give this book a pass.
