My new old cookbook


Recommended Posts

I wanted to share this with you.  Years ago, I had this book - Jim Lee's Chinese Cookbook - and after a divorce and a major move, the book somehow vanished from my collection.  I hadn't thought much about it over the years, but recently I was looking for a recipe and came across one of Jim's, and that got me to thinking about the book.  With the internet now matured, it wasn't hard to find, and here it is:

Jim's food is neither fancy nor complex, rather, it's straight-forward cooking with an emphasis on technique and ingredients.  I love it, and am so glad I found another copy. That he lived in a converted matzo factory is a real bonus.  It adds another dimension to his character.
