    #11 of 2021 Wow! This was delightful! I loooove Chinese Takeaway, so this book is extremely helpful in achieving a home cooked meal that tastes like it came from the restaurant. I will be cooking up a storm! (As soon as I can find my wok...)

    This is probably one of the best recipe books I've ever bought. I'd decided to give up on takeaways this year but still wanted to enjoy the occasional Chinese dinner. Previous attempts had always been lacking, but using this book, I have been able to recreate my favourite Chinese dishes, and make them taste so much better than the takeaway. Highly recommended.

    The book was actually recommended to me by a friend and I have so far tried several recipes from it and planning to try more of them! I am trying to cut down my eating out and cook more from scratch at home and having some cookbooks is great. The recipes are easy and easy to follow so I think even a beginner cook can do it! And I really enjoy cooking and eating them when I feel like its time for a bit of Chinese food!

    Was really missing Chinese takeaway during the lockdown (we don't have a local restaurant) so bought this to get my 'fix'. Wasn't expecting much as I've always suspected that the reason takeaway food tastes so good is the extra flavour imparted by their well seasoned woks and frying oil (and potentially the added MSG) but armed only with my flavourless non stick wok and having never deep fried a thing in my life, I set about making a Chinese banquet and couldn't believe the results.

I actually managed to produce something that tasted not too dissimilar to what you get from the takeaway!!!!! I tried: Prawn toasts Hot and sour soup Sweet and Sour Chicken balls Beef and green pepper in black bean sauce. I was also planning to make plain chow mein but thanks to the substitution kings that are Asda home deliveries, I didn't get the bean sprouts I'd ordered. Instead they furnished me with broccoli (I'd already ordered 2 bunches so get why not add a third)... No idea why that's the substitution they went for and not say a tin of bean sprouts or maybe some mange tout .... Anyway I'm getting distracted here so back to the review ... The recipes are short, easy to follow use ingredients you can find in your local supermarket (if it's better than mine) and if not, you can definitely find in a Chinese supermarket or online. In fact the only thing I couldn't get from my normal supermarket for the recipes was fermented black beans. The results were brilliant. Tasted as good as a takeaway, if not better as I could adjust the heat and seasoning to my taste. Thoroughly recommend this book.

    I absolutely enjoyed this book. I loved reading the stories behind the food and the recipes were delicious and easy to prepare. This is one cookbook I wouldn't mind having in cookbook collection.

    This book and a wok make a perfect housewarming or wedding gift, etc. The book has an attractive layout, and I can’t wait to make the crispy chicken with black pepper and salt. If like me you don’t own a wok, not all recipes require it. My version of the book was titled Chinese Takeout Cookbook, not Takeaway.
