Most of the recipes in this revised edition of a 1981 title are new, developed by a Minneapolis chef and restaurateur. Recipe notes and instructions are clear and precise, but in general the recipes themselves are nothing special; many are standard Chinese menu offerings. Still, Betty Crocker books seem to have a devoted following; buy for demand.
