Product Review (NBD):
"China The Cookbook is a magnificent insight into the history of Chinese cuisine. I will treasure it in my collection and it will be no doubt be used as valuable reference for many years to come." -Ken Hom OBE,Chef, author and tv presenter "It's hard to imagine the amount of work that must go into distilling the food of a country as wide and diverse as China into a single cookbook. It seems an impossible task, really, and yet Kei Lum Chan and Diora Fong Chan have pulled it off with aplomb... a comprehensive resource for any lover of Chinese cuisine." -Departures "If Guinness World Records 2017 were to have a section on the largest number of recipes collected, written and tested in a year, married writing partners Kei Lum Chan and Diora Fong Chan might step up for the prize... As well as being a definitive reference book, China: The Cookbook is intended as a manual for the home cook." -Newsweek online "A husband and wife team have written the definitive Chinese cookbook, with recipes from all of the country's major cuisines, as well as lesser known dishes from Xinjiang, Tibet and Inner Mongolia." -South China Morning Post (China) "Discover the breadth of China's cuisine... Suitable for novices as well experts." -The Sunday Times, The Dish "Curiosity about Chinese food continues to grow... If you haven't a clue where to begin, here is your starting point. The design - clean-, spare - makes the content approachable... There are classic recipes - sweet and sour ribs, for example - and lesser known ones too, such as the irresistible Jiangsu's drunken chicken." -The Daily Telegraph, Weekend
