This was my second Chinese cookbook and it is surprisingly good. I am glad to have discovered this book because she covers recipes from the major culinary regions of China and the basic necessary techniques. In the original edition, Simonds presented tasty recipes that were later removed for the second edition, unfortunately. (I'm not sure if they have been restored for subsequent editions.)

to be fair, I've probably only made one or two things from this, but I LOVE everything that Mike makes from it. There's a superdelicious steamed chicken, spicy veg, flavorful tofu ... yum!

Excellent basic Chinese cookbook, excels at simple yet effective marinades. Probably the best Mapo Tofu recipe I have used.
