Very inspiring, 3 April 2010
Before purchasing this book the most Asian cooking I have done is "throw everything in a wok and hope for the best", although I have also started making steamed dumplings. I bought this book to learn lots of new skills and techniques to create fresh new flavours. I haven't had a chance to cook from this book yet, however all of the recipes look achievable for the home cook. The book is separated into chapters of techniques that get progressively harder as you work your way through, building on skills learnt in previous chapters. The book is very well presented - it is a gorgeous design with nice paper, fonts and photos. I also love the menu features, there are a few pages of menu suggestions for 5 or so dishes to prepare for a banquet style dinner.
