5.0 out of 5 stars This one could quickly become very well thumbed, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For someone keen on Far Eastern food and messing about in the kitchen, this is a great book. It's well laid out, well researched and intelligently written. The recipe I tried (though there were many, many recipes that appealed) was the pork ball with glass noodle soup. I followed it exactly, adding the pak choi and mushrooms suggested in the preface text for the last 5 minutes. It was easy to follow, the timings were accurate and I produced a bright, sharp, peppery and completely delicious bowl of filling soup. There are a number of recipes requiring specialist ingredients but the vast majority are available in my local Asian store or online. It's a pleasure to have such an intelligent and tummy-rumblingly seductive addition to my cookbook shelves. This one could quickly become very well thumbed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, 23 Jan 2012
Beautifully written and utterly gripping. The descriptions behind the scenes of professional kitchens were fascinating. Alex Watts has more guts than I'll ever have, entering this strange, arcane world. Highly recommended.

BÍte De Jour: The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man
by Stan Cattermole
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.33

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully written, heart-warming and heart-breaking book, 20 July 2009
Stan Cattermole has an inate ability to capture the essence of a human being in words on a page. I know it's a cliche, but from the first page this was a book I simultaneously didn't want to put down, yet didn't want to finish. I went from laughing out loud to gulping back a tear within a matter of pages. A seriously well-written book with a seriously talented author.
