5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS BOOK! Aug. 9 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of book that you can't put down, you have to read the recipes over and over and then go to Chinatown, after reading hundreds of cooking books you know when you find one that makes you very happy and that you're going to really enjoy making and eating the recipes.The recipes are very simple, and the ones I've tried are delicious.
There's some ingredients that in Canada are the same, but have different name, for example,sweet fermented sauce is hoisin sauce, caster sugar is superfine or instant dissolve sugar, etc... ( this book comes from the UK, the American version comes out in February 2013).If you like simple and authentic Chinese recipes I think you would enjoy this book.
By the way, I was able to find everything (including the different preserved vegetables she calls for)in the Kowloon market in Ottawa.

5.0 out of 5 stars A variety of savories July 31 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been cooking Chinese food for nearly 50 years. At first, I relied on Buwei Yang Chao (1962), then on Kenneth Lo, on Pei Mei, and most recently, Fuchsia Dunlop. There are receipes in each of her books that don't duplicate any other. Last night, I tried red-cooked pork with potatoes (not the most ubiquitous of Chinese ingredients). Superb!

Fuchsia's lists of ingredients are complete and accurate. Her suggestions reflect actual kitchen usage. You need not worry that everything will be redolent of soy, sesame, ginger and garlic.

Oh ... the photographs are quite superb. They make the dishes appear nearly as tasty as they actually are.

A wonderful book by a wonderful chef!

4.0 out of 5 stars Top cookbook of the year for me Jan. 7 2014
By Maureen
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I picked this up as it appeared in the Globe & Mail top 10 cookbooks for the year. It went with my daughter to university. Good pictures, simple explanations, and uses basic ingredients in Asian cooking. I was only able to glance through and read the intro. I may pick up another copy. My daughter says that the only negative is that the recipes don't indicate serving sizes.
