Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Stir-fried Asian greens

    • Gio on September 27, 2015

      Pg. 14. A wonderful addition to my stir-fried Asian greens repertoire. Since we cook for only two people I used one pound of baby bok choy and omitted the other two vegetables. Recipe also includes 2 crushed garlic cloves. The rest of the ingredients were kept as written, enhancing the clean fresh flavors of the bok choy.

  • Fried rice

    • Gio on December 17, 2015

      Pg. 28. This is a fine basic stir-fry that we enjoyed but thought the seasoning could be enhanced by tweaking to one's liking. We omitted the baby corn, and prawns and included left over cubed roast chicken, and a mixture of wild mushrooms. Please note: green peas are included in the ingredient list.

  • Five-spice chicken

    • Gio on December 03, 2015

      Pg. 39. Delicious, great tasting dish! Since I like the exotic funky flavor of five-spice powder I was delighted with the result with this recipe. Instead of Napa cabbage I used Shanghai bok choy, and what we thought were boneless thighs turned out to be bone-in. It didn't matter though, the thighs took the 3 hour marinade beautifully and when the chicken hit the wok after the greens were cooked the aroma was intoxicating. These thighs did have to be cooked a little longer but in the end they were full of flavor, juicy, and perfect. We both loved all of it.

  • Fish with coriander chilli sauce

    • Gio on September 30, 2015

      Pg. 123. We used Gulf of Maine Pollock fillets from our CSF share and that worked very well. No adjustments were made and directions were followed as written which created a spicy, briny clean fish flavor, The plate was attractive to serve. Loved the little salad under the fish

  • Stir-fried vegetables

    • Gio on September 30, 2015

      Pg. 154. Tasty rendition of this ubiquitous recipe. We used all the stated seasonings but chose vegetables that we had on hand: straw mushrooms, carrot, onion, snow peas, red capsicum, scallions. Aroma in the kitchen while this was cooking was mouth-watering.
