Posted 09-05-11 Best Chinese Cookbook - list em all!

Hi gang - looking to see if anyone has particular recommendations for Chinese cookbooks. 

Currently I have 'The Key to Chinese Cooking' by Irene Kuo ... I have found her explanations of technique excellent, though sometimes the recipes don't come out that great. Has anyone had any + / - experiences about a Chinese cookbook (can be regional, focused on a specific type of food within Chinese cuisine, etc). 

Thanks!
