I think I can be counted as being in the Phan Club. I just got this book from the library to see what I thought of it before buying it. My first impression was S**t that's heavy. The book weighs a ton but it is beautifully done lot of pictures. We tried one of the recipes tonight, we were wanting something not to heavy and noodles sounded good. We picked the book up looked through it and went straight to the grocery store. Mix and Match Wok Fried Noodles is what we decided to make. It turned out VERY GOOD. I only have a one change I would recommend to any one trying it. Unless you have a really large wok go with 8 ounces of noodles instead of 16. Our wok was so full VERY difficult to stir. The other changes I made were my own preference on flavor used sesame oil on the noodles and coconut oil in the wok. Looking at the rest of the recipes I say this book is a winner.
