A Sampling of Glowing Reviews Tell Why How to Cook and Eat in Chinese is a Classic

"Each recipe (and there are hundreds) is lucidly written, the measurements and cooking times as accurate as any starched American home economist could wish for. . . . Having once cooked and eaten in Chinese with Mrs. Chao, one can easily understand why the authors of that great American cookbook, The Joy of Cooking, say, as they disparagingly present in their own book a recipe for Chop Suey, 'To get the feeling of true Chinese food, read Mrs. Buwei Yang Chao's delightful How to Cook and Eat in Chinese.'" -Michael Field, New York Review of Books

"Something novel in the way of a cookbook. . . . It] strikes us as being an authentic account of the Chinese culinary system, which is every bit as complicated as the culture that has produced it". -The New York Times

"The Real Deal: I had (and well used) this book for years . . . I love Chinese food, and have read and sampled from dozens of Chinese cookbooks over the years, but this is still my favorite. How To Cook and Eat In Chinese is the real deal." -Amazon Review

How to Cook and Eat in Chinese is "more than a cookbook: It is the stage on which Mrs. Chao unfolds a personal, family, and cultural drama." -Janet Theophano, author Eat My Words

"Funny Interesting, unusual and funny. This is] not just your regular cookbook in form or content. The recipes are good, original and the way the book is written is interesting. It is] just as interesting to read it for pleasure, as to use as a cookbook." -Amazon Review

"There is not a dish in its pages which an American . . . cannot produce, without qualms. . . . As for Mrs. Chao, I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Peace Prize. For what better road to universal peace is there than to gather around the table where new and delicious dishes are set forth, dishes which, though yet untasted by us, we are destined to enjoy and love?" -Pearl S. Buck
