Kan has "provided instruction in all phases of the Cantonese cuisine, selecting recipes from his restaurant menus and from the traditional and home-type foods. Three-quarters of the recipes are easy to prepare, requiring only a few ingredients . . . The remaining quarter of the recipes are for ceremonial or banquet type dishes and therefore require more preparation and unusual ingredients."

The cookbook is in good used condition for its age with just an old price sticker on the front cover and just a little wear to the front and back covers from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing.
