I was wondering if anyone has a favourite Chinese Cook book they would recommend? Thinking of getting one for a present and thought I would ask to see if there are any that stand out
It rather depends on who you are buying it for, Danuta, & their experience in cooking. Personally I think any books by Ken Hom are a good bet but I have a book by Fuchsia Dunlop which I love. She is such a good writer & the book is fascinating.
This book by Ken Hom is very good as it explains everything you need to know, but Amazon have a great selection of his work.
Confused me a bit too It's for my daughter-in-law and she is certainly a competent cook but not very old. I shall now go and check the books out
Just checked the links but the second one doesn't work Hattie. The first one certainly sounds interesting.
¦¦old age & a glass of wine¦¦my apologies !!
Joanna I think the Ken Hom one might be best¦.it's not quite so full of difficult to come-by ingredients. This link should get you to the book.
Damn , this one is not working either…..The book is called "The Complete Chinese Cookbook" by Ken Hom
Sound excuses to me Nadine. That Ken Hom one does sound good and probably just the sort of thing to get. I will probably add some crockery to that and that will make a nice gift. They might have a Wok lurking, don't know so I'll not risk that, whereas the crockery can also be used for other things, like the odd party or special meal anyway.
Well daughter-in-law was pleased with the book, unfortunately the bowls I ordered have not turned up and now trying to find out what has become of them.
