I LOVE THIS BOOK!, Aug. 9 2012
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.
