Yes, it really is easy - and has plenty of recipes too.,
This review is from: Chinese Food Made Easy (Hardcover)
What I liked about this book was the fact that the pages were not given over to extensive arty shots of ingredients at odd angles, but were packed with recipes - which, after all is why books should be bought - not just to look good on bookshelves.
The book strikes a fine balance, using authentic ingredients, but never resorting to exotics - you won't find yourself searching the Internet to order strange spices that a dish can't manage without.
Listing the recipes in logical sections was much appreciated - the next time I need a side dish for example, I can quickly turn to the relevant part of the book. Those chefs who love to replicate takeaway favourites are catered for with their own pages at the beginning of the book- a neat ploy, as many of us may have often wondered what might give a recipe that little extra something.
The book is definitely worth the money - cheaper than feeding the family at the takeway, and with a higher recipe to page ratio than most. Highly recommended.
