    1. A keeperThis would be a great book for a beginner as it has good explanations and easy techniques. I have been cooking forever and making stir fries for over 30 years and found it useful with good recipes. I have a soy allergy and sub coconut aminos for the soy sauce. Cooking yourself is cheaper, healthier and better than take out. Plus you can be sure of no MSG or other food allergies or preferences. This is a great book.

    2. Hmm a bit too repetative and US centric for my liking - although there are a couple of recipes I wouldn't mind trying.

    3. I love Chinese food and being able to prepare it at home is a dream come true for me!This cookbook explains the difference between authentic Chinese food and what Americans think it's supposed to be. I never realized there was such a difference in the ingredients.It tells you of the different types of Woks on the market and how to choose the perfect one for your needs. It is also very detailed on how to season and care for your Wok. The cookbook tells of the basic ingredients one would need to m [...]

    4. So Many Helpful Tips and Tasty Recipe IdeasI love Asian meals. I've always wanted to own my very own wok, but never knew much about them. I learned quite a bit about them and now that I actually have one, I know just how to take care of it so that it'll last for a long time. I had no idea about "seasoning" one to get the most out of it and keep b it in its best condition. Now, as for the variety of recipes, there are some really good ones in there. I've tried many of these meals in restaurants o [...]

    5. I have used a wok regularly since 1970. If I had to thin out my "batterie de cuisine" the wok would stay for sure. Every kitchen should have one. While the author uses a wok for soups that is one thing I prefer a heavy pot for.I found the recipes pretty basic but that is the goal of the book. I did like her version of scallion pancakes and pot stickers/ wontons. Contrary to the author's suggestion, I do not recommend pre-peeling and freezing garlic or ginger. I don't even refrigerate either-they [...]

    6. I received a wok as a gift last Christmas and had never really used it for its proper purpose until I evaluated The Essential Wok Cookbook by Rockridge Press. This cookbook is just what I needed to explore authentic Chinese recipes with step by step instructions to preparing quick, easy and delicious meals. From history and basics to step by step instructions with illustrations and pictures The Essential Wok Cookbook is truly an encyclopedia and cookbook in one! I am so impressed at how easy it [...]

    7. Great cookbook!I love this cookbook as an introductory to the wok and Chinese cooking. I was really glad to see it give alternatives to some of the items you may not easily find - We have again markets in town, but they aren't close to home it's helpful to know the alternatives! I also enjoyed the visuals on how to roll and egg roll or fold a wonton or dumpling. I am looking forward to using this book to start using my new wok and learning some new recipes and techniques. I feel like this is a g [...]

    8. Very good for basics!I'm never too sure when it comes to Asian cookbooks because there are so many ways to make the same thing. This book brings you right down to the basics. Ever order from a Chinese restaurant? These are the recipes to make your favorite basic dishes. It breaks it down to different meals, you can make wontons, noodles or even orange chicken with these recipes. In a rush? Easy 30 minute recipes at your hand. Running low on funds before pay day?

    9. I really enjoy this cookbook. I love Asian food of all variations but was always so intimated to try to cook any myself.This book explains the different types of woks available so you can purchase the best one for your needs, it also had a neat history section about Asian foods, which I found really interesting. The recipes in this book are healthy, and more importantly easy to follow and make at home. If you are interested in a new type of cooking, I recommend checking out this book.I received [...]
