I had this book for years. The recipes are tasty and use ingredients you can easily find in the grocery store. I wore out the one I had and purchased a replacement. Hard to find.

When dining out, I want to go to restaurants serving food that tastes better than I can make at home. We'll the Chinese restaurants have seen the last of me. With this cookbook I am now able to quickly prepare highly flavorful Chinese food dishes and know exactly what is contained in the food I am eating.

During the winter months, I prepare a weekly batch of msg-free chicken broth which allows me to quickly make my choice recipes. I also prep the chicken and meats into their bite-sized pieces before freezing them. That said, I can then prepare a soup, main-dish and rice (I recommend basmatti) in 30 minutes or less. That timeframe includes that night's prep-work and the cooking time.

Kudos to the book's author, Leeann Chin, for providing highly flavorful recipes that are simple to make.

Betty Crocker recipes have always been favorites. These recipes for Chinese Cooking are great because America likes Chinese food. The book also includes an introduction to Chinese Cooking and needed utensils and ingredients. There are even suggested menus to review. Book has recipes for appetizers, soups, beef, pork, chicken and duck, seafood, rice, noodles and dumplings, and vegetables. Please get this book and really LEARN the art of Chinese cooking.

I was privileged to take a cooking class with Leeann Chin in the early '70s when she taught at the Betty Crocker Learning Center in Minneapolis. I treasured the fading recipes I had from her class and was very upset when they were lost. To have a recipe book written by her with "my" recipes once again available to me was a joy! Leeann Chin's recipes are the best I've tried and the book will be a joy to you, too.

A wonderful old book with traditional recipes. I really do not know which one I would like to cook first. . . . .so many great recipes to choose from. I really enjoy the photo's for every recipe and easy instructions! This is a used book so I am very happy with the book and the condition it came in. Looks like a new book . . .. .Happy cooking!
