    I'd love to learn to make Szechuan chicken

  • lauriesk  on  12/11/2016 at 2:37 PM

    I don't make Chinese food at home. I would love to learn to make Hot & Sour soup.

  • sgump  on  12/11/2016 at 2:39 PM

    When I have leftover steamed rice, fried rice is on the menu for later in the week. (But, alas, I don't have a wok; I just make it in a skillet.)

  • mcrimmins  on  12/11/2016 at 3:05 PM

    I have made simple stir fries but not any Chinese food. My son lives and works in Taiwan and raves about the food.

  • rionafaith  on  12/11/2016 at 4:31 PM

    I cook a few Chinese dishes at home, mostly from Fuschia Dunlop's books. One of my recent favorites was homemade wontons with chilli oil. (I love her homemade chilli oil on everything, actually.) Would love to check out this book and branch out more into these varied cuisines!

  • camtncook  on  12/11/2016 at 4:35 PM

    I stir-fry frequently, but I'd like to try more soup and noodle dishes...

    I stir fry at home usually beef with vegetables.

  • Rinshin  on  12/11/2016 at 7:15 PM

    favorite foods - anything with noodle and tofu. And making dumplings. I've been shown how to make hand-pulled noodle popular in Xian (thinner noodle than lots available on youtube) by my in-laws who are like hand-pulled ninjas but I'm still 1 out of 10 in execution. Would love to be able to make like them.

  • alirov  on  12/11/2016 at 9:13 PM

    I've made fried rice in the past but I'd like to learn more Chinese dishes.

    The dishes I most often prepare are hot and sour soup, shrimp and asparagus with black bean sauce, crab and fish maw soup, chicken with stinky tofu, steamed pork buns with homemade char siu, bitter melon with pork and black bean sauce, and dry-fried long beans (we grow our own bitter melons and long beans). BTW, I'm Swiss-English with a heart (and stomach) for Asia.

  • ravensfan  on  12/12/2016 at 2:13 PM

  • meggan  on  12/29/2016 at 10:36 AM

    Mapo tofu

  • stockholm28  on  12/30/2016 at 11:18 AM

  • ChazBrenchley  on  12/30/2016 at 8:12 PM

    I cook Chinese food often - Fuchsia Dunlop is a favourite source - but my most common recipe is known now as Chaz'z Chinese Pork (basically a huge hunk of shoulder, simmered for hours in soy and vinegar and rice wine and sugar, until it can be pulled apart with chopsticks at the table...).

  • DragonWell  on  12/30/2016 at 8:14 PM

    OMG - Duck in any form. :)

  • lsgourmet  on  12/31/2016 at 9:19 AM

    Actually do some Chinese cooking at home, spareribs with black bean sauce, bitter melon and beef, sea bass stuffed with seasoned ground pork. I don't do great noodles, maybe this book would help.

    I do cook Chinese food at home. I got a wok and got started after reading Grace Young's Stir-frying to the Sky's Edge, and I joined the Wok Wednesday FB group, which cooks from Grace' s books. Favorite chinese food to cook at home is currently stir-fried bok choy and mushrooms.

  • love2chow  on  1/1/2017 at 12:15 PM

  • Sfgordon  on  1/2/2017 at 2:58 PM

    I make stir fries and sometimes dumplings when I feel like taking on a project. I also really like making this vegan dan dan noodle recipe - - but I feel like I don't ever get my flavor profiles right, and I would love to have a good cookbook that could guide me.

  • fiarose  on  1/2/2017 at 3:11 PM

    mmm, scallion pancakes, the rolling and folding patterns are so fun! and i love experimenting with different dumpling fillings--so far my favorite has been eggplant and sesame!
