Wen
If you can discern the underlying techniques, you will be able to prepare Chinese cuisine. Just like other cuisines, Chinese cuisine has pretty much the same basics and techniques. Stir fry and the general sauce: light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, cooking wine, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ginger, onion.

I am Chinese, so I know what real Chinese food tastes like or how they should taste like. I love how Ken approaches cooking! The techniques are authentic and very well explained. Every dish I have tried to far is delicious.

This is the first cook book by Ken Hom that I've bought. I haven't got anything to compare it to, but I like it thus far. Several recipes are provided for various food categories such as poultry, beef, pork, seafood, vegetables, & desserts (I may be missing some). From what I've seen, most of the popular recipes are covered, along with several others. Though I've mostly focused on vegetable & tofu recipes thus far, they've all turned out well and I look forward to trying the meats and desserts.

Each recipe also comes with some personal & historical highlights by the author. These are brief, but I've enjoyed them, and they provide an extra bit of authenticity to the food. Pictures are also provided.

My one complaint is that I can't seem to find recipes for some of the sauces.

Overall, a good book to try out Chinese cooking. Wok not included.
