Culling Chinese Cookbook Collection

bawc | Dec 12, 201411:36 AM     4

I have run out of room for my cookbooks! I have decided to cull by category, starting with my Chinese Cookbooks. I spent a dozen years traveling to Hong Kong, so I am predisposed to Cantonese cooking. I primarily stir-fry, because my fussy 11 y.o. loves it. I am not fond of Chinese American fusion. I would love some suggestions on what I might relinquish (and of course, there is a list of books I wish I had the room to add).

Breath of a Wok (my current favorite) by Grace Young
Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen by Grace Young
The complete Asian Cookbook by Charmaine Solomon
The thousand Recipe Chine Cookbook by Gloria Bley Miller
The Chinese Way by Eileen Fei Lo
From the Earth by Eileen Fei Lo
A spoonful of Giner by Nina Simmonds
Dim Sum by Ellen Leong Blonder
The Asian Grocery Store Demystefied
