A combination of some of the tastiest recipes of China and an introduction to the geography, history, and traditions of China, "Williams-Sonoma Savoring China" is a feast for the eyes and mind as well as the body. Each recipe has a picture of the completed dish as well as complete instructions for its preparation. Many of the dishes may require a trip to the local Chinese grocery as some ingredients may not be readily available in your neighborhood store. This is not just another cookbook of common recipes for dishes you are likely to find in the local Chinese buffet. This is a book with recipes like Shandong Chicken and Mushrooms, Braised Duck with Bamboo Shoots and Mushrooms, or Honey Glazed Beef and Walnuts.In addition to the recipes there are many pictures and articles that bring the Chinese experience into your home. Beautiful scenic pictures, as well as pictures of every day life. A culinary delight, a visual feast, and an interesting education, "Williams - Sonoma Savoring China" is a highly recommended read.
I found this cookbook on a clearance rack at a Ross store in 2008 for $6.99. One of the best purchases I have ever made. I am half Chinese and grew up with almost all of the recipes listed in the book. It is beautifully illustrated , which motivates me a little more to make my dishes look good! Iʻve had a lot of Chinese cookbooks growing up, but Iʻd say this book has most of my childhood favorites. I donʻt speak or read enough Chinese to make good use of the cookbooks my parents have. Easy to read, the formatting is great and reads very well. Now that Iʻm grown, Iʻve made my favorite dishes for my spouse and child. This cookbook has allowed me to continue family traditions and teach my child about our heritage :)
Excellent cookbook, I own and know the series and enjoy them. The photos help me envision the dishes and the recipes are wonderful. I cannot work with a cookbook without pictures as I am a visual learner.
