The food of...

This is absoultely one cookbook that everyone should own. We own the entire series and there is no other cookbook like it. There are beautiful pictures for every recipe and the recipes are very unique, interesting, and delicious. Several recipes will suggest ingredients that may be difficult or expensive to find but the recipes can also be simplified. My husband loves to cook and looooves this entire series of cookbooks. This cookbook will help any chef tap into their creativity and explore their passion for cooking and take it to a new level.

I like this book

It is a wonderful book about cooking authentic Chinese dishes. That is why I bought this book. However, I like its older version better, the one with hard cover. It had a few more pages with detailed information about Yum Cha, Soy Bean products, Peking ducks and how to make and use the pancake when you eat a Peking duck,and more...


I love the recipes and the pictures were stunning and the food taste as good as they look, it keeps you cooking

The Ultimate Chinese Cook Book

This is a book on authentic Chinese food. It is based on a trip made by the authors that covered much of Chins, talking with Chef's and photographing their dishes. This book is a large format book, profusely illustrated with literally hundreds of color photographs. The photographs show mostly food, but also a bit of the cultural scene -- where culture in this case usually involves food. The one problem with authentic Chinese food is getting the proper ingredients. For instance under Tea, they say that China's finest greet tea is grown around Longjing, and is called Dragon Well. Here in the middle of the Nevada desert trying to find such ingredients is pretty difficult. Thank goodness for the web where I found it for sale. All in all, this is the ultimate Chinese cookbook. There are hundreds of recipies, and they all came directly from China.

informative and beautifully photographed

I have always had an affinity for cookbooks that are beautifully photographed with a number of easy to do recipies. This book is simply spectacular as it has a number of great spreads and a variety of recipies. In essence, this book provides insight into many of the cultural rituals that the Chinese have with food, such as dim sum and tea. I would definitely recommend this book not only for its recipies, but also as a gift for anybody interested in Chinese food and culture.
