Format: Paperback
Consider this a must-have reference for Chinese cooking. Not only did my mother buy it at her mother-in-law's recommendation thirty years ago, but now both my sister and I have our own copies. You'd think we'd know how to cook this stuff just by hanging around the kitchen - well, that's easier said than done. This is a perfect first book for both Chinese and non-Chinese chefs (or those just trying to make dinner, like me.) Bon Appetit!

Only a sha-kuwa who doesn't know his Chinese food here in Asia doesn't know who Pei Mei is. She is a quick-wokin' jive-talkin' hot mama in the Chinese culinary world. She is the Julia Child of dumplings and roast duck. She has spanned 3 generations teaching the Chinese here in Southeast Asia (with her syndicated cooking show) the ways of the cooking mastah! Well, sad to say, the only available book here is a single edition... you should offer all of her books where she covers all teh Chinese regions from Xiamen to Szechuan to Canton...

I have been studying Chinese cooking of various styles for 25 years, and I have found only three Chinese cookbooks that truly are essential references. This one is in my collection of three while dozens of others have been discarded. It is a winner. Buy it. I am shocked to see prices hitting $50 to $150 for used copies, with new copies approaching $500 for a spiral bound paperback. Yes, I would buy a good used copy, even at these prices, although I paid only $17.95 in 1994. I am glad my copy is in new condition, and I will take extra care to keep it that way.
