I liked Kylie's previous books but the recipes in this one don't cut it. A lot of the base ingredients (ginger, garlic, sugar, soy, oyster sauce, chinese rice wine, vinegar, peanut oil) seem to be repeated over and over again and whilst I know that Chinese cooking does rely on these, I also know there is more variety to be had.
A lot of the dishes are likely to end up tasting the same, I think. They lack subtlety and fragrance.
Sorry Kylie - I think you can do better.
