Not another Chinese cook book,
This review is from: Yan Kit's Classic Chinese Cookbook (Hardcover)
I saw this book on Amazon after something pricked my memory regarding the name from a long time ago. Although dead now, Yan Kit left behind quite a legacy of recipes and techniques. I have several Chinese cookery books, some relating to my time spent in Hong Kong in the early 1980's. I decided that this may not be just another cook book so ordered it from Amazon, it arrived very quickly, even though I live in the Acottish Highlands.
The book is an excellent balance of technique and recipes based on experience and a desire by Yan Kit to write an authentic book on Chinese cooking. It achieves this beautifully and when I found a recipe slightly different to one that I had cooked many times before I immediately tried it. It has now become a firm favourite of my wife and I.
I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who wants to cook authentic Chines food.
