- Descriptions and illustrations of the ingredients and utensils used in Chinese cooking
- Planning a Chinese meal
- How to serve a Chinese meal
- Equivalent weights and measures
There follow recipes for every kind of Chinese dish imaginable from soups, egg, meat, poultry, fish and vegetable dishes to desserts and dishes for festival days. Not only has Doreen Yen Hung Feng brought to her book authentic knowledge of Chinese cookery but she has made it charming as well as practical with her graphic drawings and the stories she tells about many of the recipes and the occasions for their use. This is indeed a cook book that will fascinate everyone who loves to cook and who has enjoyed the delectable dishes in a Chinese meal.
