5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent offering from Ms Dunlop!, June 7 2008
C. J. Thompson "Arctic John" (Pond Inlet, Nunavut Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook (Hardcover)
Ms Dunlop's other book, 'The Land of Plenty' is, as I expressed in my review of it, one of the best cuisine books in my collection (and I have over two hundred).

I do prefer the first book over this latest one, but that is in no way a criticism of it's quality; rather, just a function of my personal preference for Szechuan over Hunanese cuisine.

I have little interest in cookery books that are simply just collections of recipes. Like her first effort, this book is rich with historical, cultural and linguistic information connected with the cuisine being discussed. My only negative criticism is that I especially love books that have a photograph, or photographs, of each dish for which there is a recipe... this book, and the earlier one, have lots of pix but not for each dish. STILL... that's a minor criticism.
