Solid, simple cookbook

This slim cookbook covers a lot of common Chinese-American dishes, including chicken salad, roast pork, hot and sour soup, moo shu pork, egg foo yung, broccoli beef, sweet and sour shrimp, fried egg rolls, and fried wontons. The recipes are generally quite easy to follow, and are all beautifully illustrated, so you know what the end result is supposed to look like. If you want to learn to cook the dishes that many people are used to getting from Chinese restaurants, this cookbook can be a great place to start.

stupendous cook book

I have loved Chinese food for many years and have often wished I could recreate my favorite dishes at home. I've tried a few other cookbooks and those are currently sitting in my cupboard gathering dust. Some have good recipes but all require lots of ingredients and preparation time. Chinese Cooking for Beginners on the other hand is fantastic. The recipes are easy to follow and can be made with only a few basic ingredients. The six dishes I've cooked so far were absolutely delicious. My wife jokes that she suddenly has a Chinese chef for a husband. There are several dozen other cookbooks in the Wei-chuan cooking series. Based on how impressed I am with this book, I recently ordered several others. So do your stomach a favor today and buy this book!

Excellent Chinese Cook Book

This is an excellent Chinese Cookbook for beginners. I have tried cooking many of the dishes; the instructions are easy to follow and the dishes turn out delicious. I am very happy I bought this book and will purchase more books from this series.Also, I did not think the instructions in English and Chinese were confusing (by the way, I can only read English).

This is a fantastic Chinese cookbook

I have several Chinese cookbooks and this is, by far, the best Chinese cookbook I have. The dishes are delicious and the recipes are easy to follow. My mother, who is Chinese, gave me this cookbook when I first started cooking Chinese food and it is still my favorite. I absolutely love it and have tried almost every recipe in the book. I have tried other recipes from different Chinese cookbooks and they just don't hold up next to this husband can attest to that. This is a cookbook for the true novice, a 5th grader could follow the recipes with ease.

Great Chinese Cookbook for beginners

This was my first Chinese cookbook. I highly recommend this cookbook to the novice and intermediate Chinese cooks. The book contains many pictures and illustrations. Each recipe has its own photo, therefore, you have a sense of what the finished product should look like. The recipes are simple and very easy to follow. I have probably made every recipe in this book. The dishes turned out to be superb (even for a novice like me). I have since purchased many more cookbooks by this author. I have yet to be disappointed.
