This is a good reference book for Chinese cooking. The book is arranged by ingredient. There is a picture and description of each major ingredient in Chinese cooking, along with notes on the use and a representative recipe. It's of great use for identifying the various produce available at Asian markets that you don't usually see at grocery stores in the US.

This is much more like an Asian ingredient reference book than a cookbook. It is helpful if you're interested in cooking Asian meals and would like history behind each classic ingredient/dish.
