KIRKUS REVIEW

A fine introduction for novices, as well as an ample fund of more complicated Oriental delights, this cookbook describes the basic ingredients and where to get them in this country (including mail-order stores), the implements, and the methods involved in Chinese cookery. The recipes range form the perennial favorites-- chop suey, egg foo yung, fortune cookies--to the less common and more delicious dishes like Szechuen pork and Peking duck. Menus for complete dinners are suggested; there is even a guide for ordering in a Chinese restaurant and the famed story of tea. Clear and easy--now Chinese fare can be served chez vous.
