Wok cooking made easy.
on January 9, 2011
What a delightful little cook book. It is a convenient size ( 6 x 8 inches,) and spiral bound for easy placement on your kitchen counter. Each recipe is on one page, no flipping, and a well done accompanying photograph of the meal on the opposite side. No long stories, just the facts and nothing but the facts. The recipes are clearly written with step by step instructions and ancillary notes when needed.
The recipes range form simple to fairly complex, and there is ample variety. Every meal I have cooked form this book has been delicious and ready in minutes just as the subtitle states.
Don't be fooled by the words "made easy" into thinking that this book will teach you how to buy and use a wok. The assumption is that you have acquired those skills elsewhere. For me, "made easy" means it is easy to use this book because of the way it is designed, and the way the recipes are presented.
If you enjoy Asian food, and you want to cook it at home, than I highly recommend this book. For the cook book aficionados this is a gem, and it is one that will be used, and not just read and added to the collection.
