Product description

Review

"The best Chinese restaurant in London.Hunan isn't your typical Chinese restaurant." (Zagat 2013)

"One of the top 100 restaurants in the UK (40)" (Sunday Times 2012)

"Out of this world,’ said my friend of fine beans encrusted with garlic and sea salt. ‘The brilliance is how they’ve been fried quickly to seal in the sweetness. Absurdly delicious for a humble bean." (Matthew Norman ES)

"Forget the menu, leave it to the boss’, when you visit this ‘unprepossessing’ Pimlico stalwart – simply the best Chinese in town; Mr Peng ensures ‘there’s never a dull moment’, and the ‘wonderful food’ – a ‘superb feast’ of ‘exciting, unexpected and eye-opening’ dishes – ‘just keeps coming." (Harden’s)

"Mr Peng is to Hunan what Andrea Riva is to Riva - a consummate restaurateur. He is the maestro of a chaotic medley of food, conjuring the most fabulous titbits out of a basement kitchen." (Evening Standard: The Fantastic Mr Peng)

Wooooooow !!!

What a luxurious way of binding this beautiful cook book !!!

It's so elegant, so flamboyant, and so classically expressing the profound Chinese food culture through such a special traditional Chinese book-binding style !!!!!

Delving into those pages, I really cannot wait to venture into the world of Hunan food in our own kitchen from our deep Scottish forest glen.

My husband is especially excited, because not only he has been a loyal fan of Chinese food, now that he has received this Hunan cook book as one of his 69th birthday presents, he simply cannot wait to experiment in making those actual dishes for himself and for me !

A great book. Most of the recipes are surprisingly easy to make and as long as you have access to a chinese grocers (or can order online) then you'll have no trouble. Everything I have cooked so far has been an outstanding success and has been flavoured wonderfully. Not your typical chinese recipe book by any means. Not full of bold in your face spices and flavours.
A wonderful addition to a recipe book collection and also beautifully bound and presented.

His recipes are incomplete, missing out such essentials as how to actually COOK an item. I returned mine.

Having been a regular of Hunan for so many years now, I've picked the book the moment I saw it. It really makes a nice difference since Mr Peng has been cooking in London the whole time. All ingredients are readily available pretty much everywhere and the way they explain the processes is also very practical. Wouldn't make me stop going to Hunan but being able to cook some of the dishes at home will be great.
