Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

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.

Every recipe I've tried tastes like it's from a quality Chinese restaurant. The recipes are easy to understand, I can find the ingredients in my local market, and the finished quality is consistently delicious.

I came across this book recently and found it very useful for my initial experience at cooking Chinese. Although I'm a pretty proficient cook,, I've never had much success trying Chinese dishes before. The difficulty I'd had with some of the other well-known Chinese cookbooks is that they are too complicated if you've never cooked with some of the ingredients before -- too many variables for the novice. This book takes a somewhat simpler, yet satisfying approach. It doesn't lack interest. I think I'll learn a great deal from it.

I have at least 6 Chinese cookbooks, and this one is absolutely the best ever! So far, each recipe I have tried has been rated between an 8 and a 10 for taste. It doesn't get much better than that. I am just waiting for another book to be written with Leann Chin's additional recipes.

My first Chinese cookbook for my first foray into Chinese cooking. The recipes here are simple and classic, if rather plain. I like that the ingredients are all easy to find in my area, and that the recipes are very quick! Important for me as a working person who still likes to come home and cook something interesting for dinner. I don't like recipes with ingredient lists that are a foot long. These recipes are short and easy to follow, although a bit cryptic, which led me to make a mistake in one recipe. But I was able to start over on the mistake and the recipe came out well. I would have liked more photos - one per dish would be ideal. I recommend this for the beginning Chinese cook, but not for the beginning cook.

I enjoy oriental foods and wanted to learn to cook some of my favorite dishes. This cook book is excellent. It gives clear and concise instructions as well as a wide variety of dishes to choose from. Also, the cook book has beautiful photographs for most of the receips. Items are not hard to find in your local grocery store. This cook book was also made in conjunction with the Betty Cooker cook books. So if you love Betty Cooker cook books this cook book is a plus!

I have been using Better Crocker's Chinese Cookbook for years. Our family certainly has many favorites from that edition. In fact, how I came to find out about Betty Crocker's New Chinese Cookbook is that I was trying to order copies of the original cookbook to give to my now adult children.

I not only ordered the new book for them but for me, as well. The new book includes some of our past favorites, but plenty of new exiting dishes, as well.

I wanted to learn how to cook Chinese food. Betty Crocker has never failed me, so I purchased a copy of this book... Betty Crocker's New Chinese Cookbook It has been wonderful! I have learned a lot and made up a few recipes on my own. With this cookbook, you will find you no longer have a need to go out for Chinese food.
