I bought this book and have made several chicken and rice recipes from it. A lot of them are great recipes that I've made more than once and my favorite is her sticky Asian rice. A few of the recipes were not very exciting taste wise but the recipe itself and instructions all worked. I think her second book will "bring it" it a bit more!

Received yesterday and spent a good part of the evening looking through it. An excellent book with easy to follow recipes. I am a pensioner and fancied a change to my eating habits . After a good bit of Internet research, I found Chinese cooking to be very healthy if you choose the right meals. So looking forward to cooking most of the recipes in this book. Many thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Cookbook for Pros and the Kitchen Challenged! 20 Dec. 2010
By G. Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my first review even after years and thousands of dollars in purchases on Amazon. I felt I owed it to the author after finally feeling thrilled with a cookbook purchase.

As an aspiring "home chef" without talent or experience, I've bought dozens of cookbooks hoping to find one that would enable me to create cuisine, not just mundane meals. Sadly, I have been let down countless times. Sure, my lack of cooking skills puts me at a huge disadvantage, but I'm not buying complex books. I tried to stick with cookbooks that focused on the novice. In the end, my dishes looked nothing like the photos, tasted nothing like the description, and left me with little more than dirty dishes and buyer's remorse.

The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook changed that for me. I've now cooked six meals from within these pages and every single one of them left me literally smiling at first bite. Just like one of those corny food commercials. :) Here's why:

1. The ingredients were all found at my local supermarket...unlike books that sent me to far away places in search of obscure spices that I'd never use again.

2. The book was fun to read, kept my attention, and gave me insight like no other cookbook had given me in the past. Most just started right in with the recipes, leaving me with more questions than answers. Unlike the Steamy Kitchen, they focused on the "how" without ever addressing the "why".

3. The steps were easy to follow, the dishes easy to prepare, and the end result actually matched the photos. The other cookbooks I bought should have come with a sous chef because I was way out of my element. I never realized how inadequate they were until I read and followed this book.

4. The flavors were solid, delicious, and spot-on. I couldn't believe I made these meals. They seemed complex to the taste but they were actually quite easy to make. I wasn't the only one in our family raving about the food I cooked. If you knew me, you'd know how incredible that is.

The Scallops & Fruit Salsa...amazing. The Salmon with Cucumber Relish...amazing (I used her 250-degree slow-cook method instead of steaming). The Crab Cakes...best I have EVER tasted. I could go on and on. And I will, in my kitchen, until I've cooked every meal in the book.

If you are hesitant to purchase this book...don't be. Even if you actually ARE a chef, unlike me, you'll find the dishes and flavors to be divine. But if you're a hazard waiting to happen in the kitchen, like me, this book will literally motivate you to keep trying.

Yeah...it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars best cookbook i own 9 Feb. 2010
By sugarbump - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love buying cookbooks. I love the pictures, the recipes, and trying new things. However, not many cookbooks have appealed to me because of their long, complicated recipes, so most of the time, these lovely cookbooks end up sitting on my shelf collecting dust.

A good friend of mine got me this for Christmas, and I literally jumped for joy when I opened the package. Jaden is one of my favorite food bloggers, and I couldn't wait to try out her new recipes.

I feel like she gets it-- who wants to spend 8 hours at work, only to come home and spend another 3 hours on dinner after stopping by the grocery to buy 50 things you didn't have and are only going to use once? She gets that I need dinner now, I want it good, and I want it to only LOOK like I spent a lot of time on it. This book is perfect. Her recipes are fresh, fun, and very simple. I've made some good stuff in a dinky studio kitchen (with no oven), and my husband is happy after a long day at pharmacy school. I HIGHLY recommend it, even for your kitchen-fearing friends!

I also bought this book for a friend of mine who lives in Florida. I told her no excuses about not being to cook Asian food; if Jaden can do it, she can!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Jaden Hair's "Steamy Kitchen CookBook" 4 Feb. 2015
By Emma Page - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Jaden Hair's "Steamy Kitchen CookBook". I first discovered her recipe for Mama's Famous EggRoll while surfing the net for egg roll recipes. I like the step by step photos and her comic sense of humor, as she instructs the readers on why you have to follow it step by step instructions. Her book has excelllent photos, including those of her beautiful family. The cook book is full of helpful, guiding tips, including such things as how to best cut up fresh ginger and advice on what kind of cookingware and ingredients to use. I love her comments on how other chefs have influenced her own cooking. I'm excited to starting trying some of her recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cookbook. Had it for over a year 9 Feb. 2015
By Svetlana Ganaga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent cookbook. Had it for over a year. On my countertop every other week or so. It was recommended to me by Natashaskitchen.com food blog site. This colorfully illustrated book introduces Asian cooking for the everyday cook. Recipes are simple to make. They will give you an introduction into her cooking methods and make you comfortable with steaming and stir-frying. This book can serve as a stepping stone to more advanced Asian cooking. The Quick Chicken Pho soup recipe, for example, can be taken further and made in the authentic way, however, it is a perfect recipe to try if you are not sure if you would like to invest your time into making this kind of soup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely delicious recipes 9 May 2012
By Crystal Watanabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you've never heard of Jaden Hair or cooked any of her online recipes, let me just tell you right here and now that her cookbook will not disappoint you. Full of amazing and beautiful full color photos for each recipe, you can decide what you want to make for dinner this week simply by feasting with your eyes.

For years, I used this beef broccoli recipe I'd found online and when I tried Jaden's beef broccoli recipe, my husband simply looked up at me after the first bite and said it was the best beef broccoli I'd ever made. When I made it for my in-laws, they absolutely loved it.

Jaden gives you very great instructions and also writes with the same quirky, cute, and friendly tone as she does online. This is the kind of cookbook I absolutely adore, because the photography makes it something you can look through not only for recipes but for visual representation and her writing style really makes you feel as though you've got a friend in the kitchen. After cooking several of her recipes, I'm pretty much convinced that nothing in her cookbook will taste less than amazing.
