Barbara Tropp is my hero! A year ago I became engaged to a lovely Taiwanese woman who expressed her desire not to become a full time cook just because she was married. This inspired me to try my hand at Chinese cooking. I began to research cook books determined to fine one written by an authentic Chinese chef. To my surprise, Barbara Tropp's name kept coming up in reviews and articles....I couldn't escape her name so I bought "The Modern Art of Chinese Cooking". It was important to me to learn "the real McKoy" because my bride-to-be would be my judge. I was completely surprized when Mary kept exclaiming over and over that "that's how they do it in restaurants back home" or "that's how my mom does it" and so on. The only draw back is that, now, to enjoy my favorite chinese dishes, I have to cook them myself. Our local Chinese restaurants do not serve most of the recipes in Ms. Tropp's book. She is clearly passionate about her subject. And as a result, so am I. This book not only teaches one how to prepair her dishes, it gives you background information surrounding them. The regions where they originated, when and how they are served. Additionally, if she make ANY changes to the original recipes, she tells you what they are. You are not only learning how to prepair delicious dishes. You are getting an education beyond the ingrediants making it possible to taylor your meals around your guests (if they happen to be Chinese). So! Now I have a new hobby which I enjoy because I'm learning to do it well, my fiance thinks I'm great because I cook for her, my friends are constantly inviting me to cook for their parties and Mary loves showing off my skills and insights to her Asian friends and aquaintences.
