4.0 out of 5 stars Great grub but a wee niggle about pictures, 24 Aug. 2011
I like the recipes in this book, and finding a copy of Ken's book from 1982 or so actually inspired me to try cooking Chinese food. Funnily enough, when I compared the suggested menus in each, I noticed they were more or less identical.
Further investigation revealed a lot of similar content - no big drama, but how about photos of every dish so I think I'm getting something new? There are a lot of pictures but too many of them are photos of ingredients, knives, Ken and the like. I know what kitchen equipment looks like, show me the food!

Overall, a good book for fledgling Chinophile chefs and experienced ones too - lots of advice on tools, prep and ingredients, and some great grub as well.
