Product description

Review

"[A] magisterial new book."
--New York Times

"[A] beautiful and meticulous volume that examines the techniques one by one--stir-frying, deep-frying, saucing, braising. The recipes travel the gamut from familiar (mapo tofu) to startling (pig's skin and bean aspic), offering something for both the student and the adventurer in your kitchen."
--T. Susan Chang, NPR.org, one of "2015's Great Reads"

"If you've wanted to cook authentic Chinese food but have felt a little put off by unfamiliar ingredients or techniques, then run, don't walk, to buy this book."
--Fine Cooking

"Red Cook blogger Kian Lam Kho focuses on basic techniques--flash-poaching, deep-frying, hang-roasting--in his first cookbook, a compendium of specialties from throughout China. Organizing recipes by technique, he shows how to master dishes from the simple (cucumber salad) to the complex (yin-yang fried tofu-skin rolls)."
--Food & Wine

"This extraordinary collection is a must-have for anyone interested in Chinese cuisine."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[A] gorgeous trove; if you owned it, you'd feel as though you'd never need another Chinese cookbook for your entire culinary life."
--Seattle Weekly

"An attractive, knowledgeable yet accessible guide to cooking Chinese food, focusing on techniques from stir-frying to smoking. Kho clearly explains the differences in regional cuisines, reviews crucial cooking tools and skillfully guides Western readers through essential ingredients and dishes."
--Seattle Times --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable introduction to Chinese cusine at home.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 June 2016
If you're new to Chinese cooking in your own home, then this beautifully written and presented book is a good start.
What impressed me as much as the comprehensive recipes contained in the book was the comprehensive information on ingredients, aromatics, herbs and spiced employed by the Chinese - as well as interesting and vital information on both cooking and flavoured oil selection, stock preparation and even the various methods of vegetable prep and meat cutting techniques. There's even a section on blade selection.
Overall not just a 'recipe book' but essentially an utterly indispensable guide to Chinese cuisine at home.
