Format: Hardcover
Great book! It has taught me not only some incredible recipes, but also much about the culture and history of the wok. I have never used a cookbook as frequently as this one, and now I have my whole family hooked on stir-frying.

My only gripe is I find the recipe layout a bit muddled and disorganised. I need to re-read each recipe several times before finding out the exact combination of ingredients and order of cooking, and everything needs to be memorised beforehand because looking for information once the stir fry has started results in a burn-fry more often than not!

I have also adapted all the recipes to be spicier and not as salty. I understand the book is geared towards a North American audience so they tend to be a bit bland and very salty (To Grace Young's credit, she explains at the beginning of the book that the recipes are just guidelines and should be experimented with)

Other than that, the book itself is beautiful. The photography and writing are top notch and I have read it from cover to cover several times. It is as amusing as it is informative and I find it has enriched all aspects of my life because cooking dinner has now become much more of a philosophy rather than a chore. We eat healthier food which makes us feel better (not to mention the fact that our grocery bill is significantly reduced) and the care involved in preparing everything before hand reminds us how important it is to slow down and take the time to appreciate things properly.

I only wish she offered a digital version of all the recipes, because it pains me every time I spill oil or touch the book with wet or greasy hands.

Great read!

I really enjoyed this book, I've tried a few recipes so far and they we're delicious. My only complaint, which is enough to knock off 2 stars, is that the a Kindle version has no Table of contents. This is a pretty big recipe book and trying to navigate it without a Table of contents is a nightmare. I have to bookmark every recipe I happen to find interesting and use those to go back and forth.

If you're interested in buying this book, I would buy the physical version. You won't enjoy the Kindle edition, unless they update it in the future.

This book is excellent. Easy to follow and contains recipes that you will actually do. Chinese food like you order in a good Asian restaurant.

Grace Young's recipes, notes and anecdotes make this the best, most interesting cookbook we have used (and used) for years.
