Favorite Quotes

"If a book is worth reading at all, it is worth reading more than once. Suspense is the lowest of excitants, designed to take your breath away when the brain and heart crave to linger in nobler enjoyment. Suspense drags you on; appreciation causes you to linger."

— William Gerhardie

Ken Hom's Top 100 Stir-fry Recipes

Title: Ken Hom's Top 100 Stir-fry Recipes
By: Ken Hom

Ken Hom knows his business. In this wonderful book there are many great recipes, both the usual and unusual, all with excellent pictures. I've tried over a dozen, and they're all terrific. But the best thing about the book isn't any of the 100 recipes; it’s the "basics" section at the back of book. That's where Mr Hom tells us how to make the "base" of any great stir fry, the sauce. Black Bean, Oyster, Garlic; the making of these and more is explained step-by-step. I've made those three, and they were all delicious, as good as or better than my favorite Chinese restaurant’s. I love this book so much, I bought a copy. Enjoy!
