Simple but delicious. Brilliant collection
on 29 October 2017
This is a wonderful book; well formatted for access on a tablet or phone and packed with recipes. If you've never cooked a Chinese dish before, this would be an excellent starter. Nothing very complicated, the recipes are well set out with timings and tips and there's an excellent section at the front with advice on utensils, their care, oil temp, type of oil etc. Equally, if you're a dab hand at Chinese cooking, there's still plenty of inspiration in this collection.
I find the authors enthusiasm infectious; I've seen her on TV and she's one of the few cooks who makes me want to get up and cook immediately. The table of contents is interactive, so it's easy to look up recipes for pork, soups and starters, fish, vegetarian etc using the 'go to' function. There's a wonderful section 'Chings Menus' with menus for parties or larger numbers and a useful chapter on basic store cupboard ingredients. These recipes make the best use of fresh, healthy food, cooked at home and far better than a take away. I love this book and I'll be looking for more, probably in hardback.
