I want to get started with Chinese cooking

vonshu | Mar 7, 2013 02:07 PM

I have a lot of cooking experience, especially in French cuisine, but I have never really cooked Chinese cuisine. What cookbook should I start out with? I was thinking one of the Dunlop books (which one is the best?) or perhaps something else entirely. My next question is, basically, is a wok absolutely essential for cooking most Chinese food? I live in a relatively small apartment with three other people and kitchen space is quite limited so I may not be able to get one, at least not right away. Thanks
