5.0 out of 5 stars like it a lot ..., 30 Jan 2013
... and so do my guests. Very interesting too. To give you a hint - even very "simple" recipes like the Cong Bao Niu Rou which I cooked maybe 50 time since I got the book, taste different every time. Simple, but still tricky. The recipes are sound and you can cook them to the letter and they end up great - I have yet to find one that doesn't work - but you can experiment on them and play and see how it goes. Stock recipes are great. Excellent Chinese cookbook with authentic ingredients (gan bei/gon buy comes to mind) and none of this dumbed-down "for dummies" stuff. love it. You need to be willing to spend time though, like making your own stocks (cubes definitely don't cut it).

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Bad pseudo-fusion cuisine', 29 Jan 2013
This review is from: Momofuku (Hardcover)
his words, and unfortunately I have to agree. I was looking forward to this book,went to the local bookstore and skimmed through most of it, and was disappointed. 'Bad pseudo-fusion cuisine' it really is, sadly. lots of bling, lack of cookery.
