This review is from: Sichuan Cookery (Paperback)
I lived in China for a few years and it always niggles at the back of my mind when I am in restaraunts or using Chinese cook books that the recipes are not quite like the Chinese really cook them. This is a pity as I loved Sichuan food, and Sichuan in your Chinese restaraunt is unlikely to taste any thing like the reality. The reason I give this book five stars is it simply allows me to cook almost exactly those same flavours and tastes that I remember. Hui guo ruo, shui zhu niu ruo, hong shao qie zi. All present and correct. Fantastic!
