Does anyone know of any really good chinese cookbooks in English?

Heck, the only one I have was written by a Jewish woman, Nina Simonds. It's OK, but she's no Diana Kennedy (the Irish authority of Mexican cooking).

At one time I studied to be a sous chef and we were required to purchase "The Key to Chinese Cooking" by Irene Kuo. Something better might be on the market now, but it's a very good guide with authentic recipes - right down to using blood to thicken soups.

...One thing that we always noticed, no matter what we ordered, it didn't look at all like what the Chinese folks were eating. It was as if they ordered off a different menu, which I suspect they did...

I know it's true in Boston's Chinatown. When we are with the Lovely
Bride's side of the family, we get menus written in Chinese. Obviously
they don't give those to the "Lo Fan".



My absolute favorite dish is the Lovely Bride's Lobster Cantonese.
