About the Author
One word, Wonderful! That's how I describe this book. You will never ever have watery stir-fries or half-raw veggies again. Your stir-fries will come out just like they are supposed to... with the "Breath of the Wok" still wisping from the perfectly seared meat and veggies. This is the only book so far that has taught me how to cook proper Chinese dishes. The meat is tender and juicy and the veggies are tender-crisp with a light flavorful sauce. Simply wonderful. I'm still amazed at myself for being able to produce these dishes with such an inexpensive wok! Many thanks to the authors for their labor of love.-J. Nammar
I used to wander about China town in NYC trying to get a handle on Chinese food. Really, Chinese is the best combination of cheap and healthy in NYC. As a student at Uni, I needed a cheap alternative. I used to sit at Barnes and Noble for hours compiling recipes and wok seasoning techniques. Thankfully, I remembered this book and eventually bought it.-Michael Hong
I have really enjoyed this book. When you are going to learn about a particular cuisine, it is very important to know the history behind it. This book follows the history of that most familiar of Chinese kitchen equipment, the wok. The recipes are also excellent!-William A.
