5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Recipes with Helpful Tips for Shopping!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2019
As a good home cook for mexican and italian food, I have always wanted to learn how to "master" the art of chinese cooking. I have found it intimidating to even try -- ingredients I have a hard time pronouncing, flavour components I don't have a lot of experience with and therefore want to measure everything, and new tools! 'Every Grain of Rice' eased my mind and gave me confidence that I could do it successful. She walks through tools, chopping methods, how to navigate the grocery store -- seriously LIFE SAVER to have the characters written out and spelled (and pictures!), and reasonable for the non chef recipes! I have had a lot of success with her dishes from Dan Dan Noodles, Fish-Fragrant Aubergienes, Blanched Choy Sum with Sizzling Oil -- which taught me the basics of making veggies DELICIOUS and Gong Bao Chicken with Peanuts. I am honestly super excited to try all of the dishes and making the ones I love even more to build my confidence and flavour mastery!

I can't give enough praise for this cookbook! Seriously I would buy again without hesitation -- a must for all lovers of chinese food who want to stop all the takeaway!
