The next few recipes are from a big, fat cookbook that would be several volumes if they had not used the somewhat unappealing format in which the recipes are presented. The book is pretty no frills, with little background given for the dishes. Almost everything that Ive tried from the book has been good, though. Here we get into some hard- core, no-fooling Chinese vegetarian recipes. The book has a lot of vegetarian stuff in it, as well as recipes tailored for diabetics and those with ulcer problems. Its actually pretty easy to use once you get used to the odd format.
