Suggestions on great Chinese cookbooks?

La Dolce Vita | Aug 15, 2006 09:00 PM

I've been making a lot of stir-fry recently, and I'm looking for really good stir-fry brown sauce recipes that are not too salty.

I own one Chinese cookbook. It seems to be geared for the average American who doesn't mind using ketchup and whatever supermarket brand of soy sauce is on sale.

I'm looking for a cookbook that produces extraordinary Chinese dishes, even if I have to spend extra time making a brown sauce base from beef bones. The more detail, the better. I would really love to master the art of Chinese cooking, at least for a few dishes that I could make on a regular basis, so any cookbook that could help me on this quest would be greatly appreciated.
