These are some of the Amazon reviews for the previous edition: Book for NEW Chinese cook Wanabees 4.0 out of 5 stars, 186 of 190 people found the following review helpful: As a novice cook and a lover of Chinese food, I purchased this book along with a Wok and started my voyage of discovery into the far east. The book was perfect for the starter to learn how to Season the wok, use the wok and care for the most important part of your kitchen. It gives great details about sizes and shapes of cuts when preparing meat and veggies to ensure you start off on the right foot. I started of on the simpler looking dishes, picking out a few favourites that I had enjoyed on my walks home from the pub on a Friday night. The descriptions and details and simplicity of the book and the way it is written ensured that my first few easy dishes turned out like restaurant food (even if I do say so myself). A couple more visits to the Chinese supermarket and a purchase of a few simple and in expensive items ensured that I could progress and tackle slightly more extravagant dishes which again have turned out very tasty. Since I have loaned my book out to several wanabees and helped them in the supermarket buy their first Wok. All in all, an excellent book with fabulous dishes that anyone can make. 5.0 out of 5 stars. Great little cookbook. By R. Haines (Oxford) 32 of 34 people found the following review helpful: This plainly presented modest paperback is full of classic recipes that work very well. It also has some good sections covering technique. I use this book a lot and wouldn't be without it on my shelf. 5.0 out of 5 stars Chinese food the right way for a fiver. By Mr. D. Kirk (Ibrox, Glasgow) - 17 of 18 people found the following review helpful: Cannot reccomend this book enough. True it is a small book, but it tells you so much. Highly reccomend the recpie for Char Sui Pork - worth it for that ALONE.
