A friend who taught English with me in China recommended this gem to me. Since I taught English and lived in Sichuan Province for a year, I'm so grateful to have this guide to how to reproduce the amazing food in my kitchen here in the U.S. Dunlop gives some of my favorite recipes (try the Pockmarked Mother Chen's Tofu, the Twice-Cooked Pork, and the Dry-Fried Green Beans) and makes allowances for Western kitchens. It even includes several hotpot recipes, which I'm looking forward to trying out with friends. A great book!
