This is my second copy of this book. I wore out my first copy. Good recipes & easy to follow directions make this cookbook a must have if you want to learn Chinese cooking. I have also purchased copies of this cookbook for several of my children and have recommended it to several others. Even after 30 years I still refer back to it when I am making a new dish. The techniques will never change.
With meat prices soaring, I'm going Asian, some chicken fried steak, chicken, homemade soup, and fish. I've only made the Long soup with American noodles and the Beef Chow Mein on page 38. I bought the exact ingredients and followed the directions. It was a bit of work but when I got done, I took my first bite and exclaimed to myself, "I can't believe I made this". It was absolutely delicious. It was good warmed over until it was gone.I guess I'm not surprised to see this book still in print. My copy is 1980. I use my wok for deep frying and my new Analon skillet for stir frying.I think the secret to efficient preparation of the recipes is make sure you have all the ingredients or worthy substitutes on hand, set them all out but not necessarily measured out in little dishes. Cut up all the veggies, get the meat/fish ready and set in marinade if called for. That way you can optimize preparation time.
I've used this in paperback form for over 12 years, and have not been disappointed with how tasty the recipes have turned out.Easy, tasty recipes, and with some styling, they can look almost as nice as the pictures!Great price (often under $2 at or even at garage sales etc), a pretty color photo of each dish...it just doesn't get better.I've given these out as gifts to friends, who have been happy, can't beat that for a gift.
I've used many recipes in this cookbook, and I have yet to find one that isn't incredibly tasty. There's a good glossary for many of the ingredients in the front, and I don't have any difficulty finding things in my market. When I want to try something new, I am confident I can open any page in this cookbook, pick a recipe, cook it and likely have my taste buds singing for a couple of days.
We have enjoyed almost every recipe we have tried from this cookbook and I love the fact that it includes seafood. Lots of pictures. Try the crab stuffed shrimp...yum!
This is a very simple cookbook with very tasty recipes. It is concise and has a great blend of interesting dishes. It is older---I have had it for years and still use it often. There are a few unusual recipes that are worth every penny if you decide to buy this book. As you can tell---I love it!
I had given up looking for my copy. The day I found it listed, I checked and checked to make sure it was indeed the same one.I even go my DH excited about some of our favorite recipes from over 30 years ago.Book arrived in extra good condition, with no more wear than if I myself had been using it all these years. Two dear friends (remembered cookbooks) in a 2 mo period? Life is Good.
This is the US edition of the Australian Women's Weekly book. I used this book a lot and then lent it out to someone who lost it. I'm so happy to get a hold of this copy 10 years later. Every dish is tasty and easy to make.
