I have been making chinese food since I was about 15 years old. I have used many cookbooks and had moderate success with good tasting chinese food. I just made beef with broccoli and Sichuan green beans and it was far and away the best I have ever made. I wouldn't say that it is "easy" making chinese food. You have to have the timing just right and be able to juggle two dishes in two woks but the result was fabulous. I knew from Bee Yinn Low's descriptions that we have similar tastes..I really appreciate this book and look forward to trying out the other recipes!
