Booklist Review

Twin sisters Helen and Lisa Tse, the culinary force behind the popular Sweet Mandarin restaurant in Manchester, UK, have deftly translated their dishes for home cooks of all skill levels (and diets). Their first cookbook (Helen penned an award-winning memoir also titled Sweet Mandarin, 2008) gives cooks all the necessary tools to prepare popular Chinese takeout dishes like hot-and-sour soup, lettuce wraps with chicken, and a variety of stir-fries in their own kitchens. And there are plenty of modern twists (and lush food photography) inside, such as chile chocolate macaroons, Asian-style burgers, and sweet Mandarin barbecue ribs. Even better, the Tses offer gluten- and dairy-free options for each recipe, along with personal and historical anecdotes. Also indispensable are the sections on Chinese cooking tips, stocking a pantry, and purchasing cooking supplies. For those who have the local Chinese takeout place on speed dial, this will become a much-loved book.--Lalley, Heather Copyright 2010 Booklist
