5.0 out of 5 stars Great results, 28 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Simple Chinese Cooking (Hardcover)
This book delivers results. Its simple, easy to follow and so far after about ten recipes, each one has been a winner. True, there is repetition in the types of treatment meted out to the different main ingredient, but importantly this is a how to manual and repitition gives a great feeling for how to devise and cook beyond the recipe book itself, and so I would almost be tempted to say this is a starter's guide to chinese cooking. One word of advice however, is that I have used the book in Australia and the UK. In the UK the seafood and fish generalll available are not of the same fresh quality as in Australia. If you make seafood in the UK go to a reliable fish-monger or you will be disappointed. Another thing that is important too is that the recipes presuppose freshness and quality with ingredients. Kwong does not use MSG (food flavour enhancer) at all, which is in contrast to much chinese cooking - her reasoning is that MSG is there to help less the fresh ingredients.
