Definitely a must have if you own a wok. It's full of amazing recipes that are easy to do. All the recipes in this book are very easy to follow. You can almost do anything and everything with a wok and cook book. I am very happy with this book. Vegetables,rice,meat anything you want to cook this book will teach you how to cook it.  I'm not a very good cook but this book has given me my confidence in the kitchen back.

I received a wok as a gift last Christmas and had never really used it for its proper purpose until I evaluated The Essential Wok Cookbook by Rockridge Press. This cookbook is just what I needed to explore authentic Chinese recipes with step by step instructions to preparing quick, easy and delicious meals. From history and basics to step by step instructions with illustrations and pictures The Essential Wok Cookbook is truly an encyclopedia and cookbook in one! I am so impressed at how easy it is to prepare authentic meals I thought of as being served only in restaurants. And the under $10 selections make it even more pleasing to own this cookbook. Family and friends will be impressed with your preparation of authentic Chinese dishes. I received the Kindle edition for free to evaluate. This review is of my honest and unbiased opinions based on my personal use of the book.

I have really been looking forward to purchasing and cooking with a wok. I am really pleased to have been given this cookbook and an opportunity to view the many cooking techniques that can be used with a wok. Not only are the recipes surprisingly easy, but there are great wok seasoning and care tips in this book.

I've never cooked with a WOK before, but we recently got one and of course needed recipes to use it. This book has some delicious and easy to create recipes. The recipes were clear and easy to follow, and there are a variety of options, so it will be hard to get bored with this cook book! I really enjoyed the 'origin stories' and how they give a history of the food style. My husband loves stir-fry and couldn't be happier that we found this book! I also loved the "under $10" recipes, who doesn't love to save money! I received​ this book for review, however all opinions are 100% my own!
