    1. Beautiful pictures of food and people of China. It was interesting to see the process of how Peking duck is made. Recipes are true "homecooking" Chinese food, not greasy like the resturants. I am Cantonese. The recipes are like grandma's.

    2. My go-to Chinese cookbook. The recipes are (mostly) pretty simple, and after reading a few, you get a sense of what makes Chinese food taste Chinese. And the gorgeous pictures!

    3. This is one of the best Chinese cooking books on the market for the following reasons:-1. The recipes are authentic. No 'taste of China' by some celebrity chef adding soya sauce to some meal, or 'interpretations' of classical dishes. These unadulterated recipes are for meals that appear on menus throughout China, like xi hong chi chao ji dan (tomato scrambled eggs) which is often seen in China but rarely in Chinese restaurants abroad.2. It's all restaurant standard food. This means the meals are [...]

    4. A wonderful book. One of the few if not the only English language book I have found with the recipe for West Lake Vinegar fish. And also crab with glutinous rice cakes (although only the recipe for the crab is provided). Oh what I wouldn't give for a bit of that right now.

    5. Contains recipes for many favorites of Chinese cuisine. Take note that these are almost all restaurant-style dishes. Very few of the recipes are the kind you'd find being cooked often at home.

    6. My absolute favorite cookbook. Gorgeous photos, comprehensive fold-out sections that focus on special ingredients or techniques. Recipes turn out perfect.
