“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
