Every recipe I tried in this book needs adjustments. I made about half the recipes in this book and I have yet to come across a great tasting one. They are mostly one-dimensional in taste and range from too salty to too sour to too bland. All of the dishes came out tasting more like something a home cook whips up at the last minute than something you actually paid money to replicate.
For an equally easy to make dishes, but with vastly superior results, try the book by Diana Kuan instead. The two books have many similar dishes, but the flavours are amazing for most of the dishes in that book.

The recipes are well described and if you read the advice at the beginning of the book (which I often don't) easy and quick to execute - in particular the advice to have everything ready to go as the actual cooking is a fairly quick affair. My wife is not a big fan of Chinese food generally but is delighted with the meals I have produced with my old wok and Ching-He's guidance. The recipes I've tried so far are delicious and not overly spiced despite chopped chillies making an appearance in some of them. Initial larder stocking was not onerous and almost everything is available in Tesco/Sainsburys/Waitrose and quantities of shaoxin rice wine, oyster sauce etc used in the book are not massive. Our current recipe of choice is the beef and spinach with fried rice - amazing.
I recommend this book to all - if you can heat rapeseed oil in a wok and have a wooden spatula you can produce wonders.
