Exploring China - A Culinary Adventure,
This review is from: Exploring China: A Culinary Adventure: 100 recipes from our journey (Hardcover)
Having watched the TV programme without fail, I was very excited to see that there was a book as well - which was then given to me as a gift (even better!).
It is full of gorgeous pictures of China, as well as many of the dishes made in the TV show, and the recipes are on the whole easy to follow - if you have the right tools.
This is where the book loses one star from me, some of the recipes are just not practical to do in your average kitchen. One recipe calls for the smoking of a duck over wood chips. The other slight disappointment is that not every recipe has a photo to show you how it is supposed to look, and whilst this is not a necessity, it is something that I do like in cookbooks.
However, I am very glad that I now have this book, it would have been great to have had it before the programme finished, so that I could cook recipes to watch with the show, but on the whole it is a lovely cookbook.
