Extremely useful

Practically every recipe I've tried from this book has been delicious. I especially like the supplementary information on how to make tofu and growing bean sprouts, which I've not seen covered in other Asian cookbooks. My only criticism is that there is no alphabetical index; it makes it a little hard to look up specific recipes.

Classic Yan

Yan can be a little hokey at times, but that's part of the fun. I really enjoyed this book and every recipe I have tried has been excellent. Ingredients and other tidbits are thoroughly explained. As it's one of the older Yan books, I found it enjoyable not to have to wade through a glossy "picture book" cook book so popular today that seem to leave the recipes in as an afterthought.

It's an OK cook book, better than his clowning TV show

Just like his Jerrie Lewis-like show to entertain the audience, this cook book is trying very hard to be funny and wastes lot of pages and spaces in gimmicky blabbings. The ingredients are okay, the mix of all marinading and battering ingredients and portions are not so good and actually not even authentic. Buy since this book is also treating readers like the TV show audience, entertaining and marketing purposes are well served.
