I'm a reasonably good cook and I really enjoy good food. I lived in Taiwan for two years back in the mid '70s and I have been trying for 35 years to recreate the elusive flavors I remember. This book finally allowed me to do that.
Grace Young defined the subtle, quintessential something that I had been missing as "wok hay" and her book taught me how to capture it. The recipes are fabulous, but the greatest value of this book for me besides the revelatio Who reads cookbooks? The recipes are fabulous, but the greatest value of this book for me besides the revelation of wok hay was the stories Young tells of the Chinese diaspora and how Chinese cuisine has been adapted to the culinary environs of all the countries where Chinese people have settled. Jamaican Jerk Chicken Fried Rice is just one exciting example.

This is an exceptional book. An absolute must for anyone interested in Chinese cooking. Sep 16, Cecilia Adame rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this cookbook and recommend highly to anyone who is interested in learning how to make anything stir fried. I initially bought this book because my local Chinese cafe closed and I really liked their chow mein so I decided to buy a cookbook to learn about the spices to use. I had tried stir fry before but was not happy with the soggy veggies that resulted by using my non stick Calphalon wok I had purchased five or so years ago.
Between this book and "Breath of a Wok" also by Grace Young I l I love this cookbook and recommend highly to anyone who is interested in learning how to make anything stir fried. Between this book and "Breath of a Wok" also by Grace Young I learned to make an awesome stir fry using a lot of veggies, baking soda tenderized chicken and Chinese five spice. I was so confused about what noodles to use and discovered that spaghetti noodles work just fine. Aug 28, Shaima rated it liked it. I've finished the book and the 5 recipes I've followed have turned out well.
I've had only decent luck using recipes as inspiration. The book's organization works fairly well as an instructional manual, but n This is the book that is teaching me to stir-fry. The book's organization works fairly well as an instructional manual, but not so well if you're trying to figure out what to cook that night. The ebook experience is awful, however. I think I just like having a physical cookbook. Nov 01, John Beverley rated it really liked it Shelves: If you want to make authentic Chinese stir fry, this is your book.
For all the time, money, and trouble, you're probably better off going to a high end Chinese restaurant. Makes a gr If you want to make authentic Chinese stir fry, this is your book.
Makes a great coffee table book, though. May 10, Anthony rated it liked it Shelves: Mostly skimmed through the recipes. The book is a great primer on cooking with a wok - it explains the different types of woks, how to season and maintain a wok, and the general process behind stir frying. I'm reading through The Breath of a Wok and so far I would recommend that over this book. Jan 08, Maggie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is an excellent cookbook. Every recipe I've tried from it so far has been easy to follow and has resulted in delicious, authentic meals. What I like best, though, is how thoroughly Young discusses all the basic ingredients of Chinese cooking, explains in words and pictures basic knife skills for different preparations, and covers proper cleaning and care of a wok.
I got this book for Christmas, and already I've learned so much from it. I highly recommend it.
Dec 21, Ryan rated it really liked it. Another good "wok" book by Grace Young. This one contains a variety of wok recipes interlaced with personal stories about native Chinese who adapted their cooking as immigrants to countries around the world. Young is intrigued by the Chinese cooks' way of adapting stir-fry to local ingredients and tools. I've tried out the recipes for fried rice and broccoli beef rookie recipes according to Young and they were a big hit at our house.
Dec 31, DK Simoneau rated it it was amazing Shelves: I went on a stir-fry kick awhile back, and this was THE book that made it last for so long. Everything we tried came out wonderful. Well written, well documented with steps and picture. A Great great cookbook on stir-fry for sure! Had to buy two copies so at my partner's house we could use it too!
May 19, Valerie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: All of the information about stir-frying, chinese immigrants adapting to new foods, and keeping their traditions alive while forging new ones was fascinating.
I will wait on the final star until after I try some of the dishes. One that intrigues me involves stir-frying bagels I'll certainly try that one. Apr 20, Mel rated it it was amazing. Grace's cookbooks are a beautiful compilation of food, recipes, and history. Her recipes in this book are fail-safe; I never made a good stirfry before I owned this book, and now mine are always great!
She is a wonderful writer, and a gracious person. Feb 23, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Every recipe I have made from this book has been super delicious. Easy to follow and as long as you have all of the ingredients explained at the beginning of the book, you can cook hundreds of yummy things.
I love my wok!
Sep 01, Lauran rated it really liked it. Only made two recipes so far, but both turned out better than my randomness. Easy directions and really good intro explanations about wok cooking. Now I just need a suitable wok. Mar 08, Maria rated it liked it. Knowledge of equipment and dedication to stir fry cooking was amazing.
A novice cook would become an expert with this book and if possible individual lessons from this author. Excellent book on stir frying. Jan 11, Helen rated it liked it.
