Land of Plenty: A Treasury of Authentic Sichuan Cooking
Land of Plenty: A Treasury of Authentic Sichuan Cooking
by Fuchsia Dunlop
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.93

4.0 out of 5 stars nice textbook on sichuan cookery but needs more photographs, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good book, it can be considered to be a textbook on sichuan cooking. I wish it had more photos or illustrations though - it is often hard to describe complex processes without pictures when you have not seen them before. Fortunately for me I am familiar with this style of food so I found the book very useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought it a while ago, so far i agree with the recommendations i have tried, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not in complete agreement with everything they say, but the book and I both agree whether a restaurant is good or should be avoided.

2.0 out of 5 stars I can see why bioware sold up!, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They knew... they knew... they must have been happy to get out and let EA take all their problems away! There are so many sites that can give you a detailed review of this game that I don't see why I need to write one.

4.0 out of 5 stars good recipe book for experienced cooks, but i think it tries too hard to set atmosphere, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Songs of Sapa (Hardcover)
A good book for experienced cooks who want to try out a new cuisine. It does describe the specialised ingredients well enough that you can work out the local names and therefore find a specialised dealer. I thought he tried too hard in some places to write some flowery prose to set atmosphere and it felt forced at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than Titan Quest, Worse than Diablo, uses Starforce., 19 Jan 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Loki (PC DVD) (Video Game)
Publishers website has a downloadable playable demo.

Game Style: Orthographic, top-down RPG like Diablo 2 and Titan Quest.

Graphical Quality: Better than D2, Worse than TQ.

Animation: Somewhat jerky even on high end systems. It's not the hardware. The. game. is. not. smooth. It. plays. like. this.

Controls: Bad controls. Feel sluggish and inaccurate.

User Interface: Very sucky and unfinished. No "paper doll" ivnentory, instead a list of items, and you click on (tick) the items you want to wear. Same for shops. No graphical shop display.

Polish: It isn't. You know it could be better had they more time or money. Just look at the UI and animation.

Fun Factor: Very high.

Atmosphere: It's good actually. Feels like a real world. Quite involving. You can get immersed in it.

Lots of breasts, too.

One problem --- The EU version uses STARFORCE protection. Get the US version, the online version, or Steam version.
