Spot on - actually delivers superb chinese food in minutes.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ching's Chinese Food in Minutes (Hardcover)
I first saw Ching cooking some of these dishes from a stall in Soho. What I found really exciting was that in her demonstrations she actually did produce the most delicious looking food in mere minutes. OK, there may have been a little prior preperation of some of the ingredients but essentially she did exactly what she promised to deliver.
Perhaps the main strength of this book is that it does not constantly compromise on the use of authentic ingredients for easily sourced western alternatives, but at the same time limits the truely Chinese products to a relatively small number (all of which are easy to obtain - particulary if you live close to a Wing Yip store!) - which in my opinion make all the difference to the taste.
I must confess to having quite a number of cook books - some rarely used - but this has become one of my top ten favourites.
