Szechuan cookbook?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Spent a little time in China in June, and the Szechuan food was mind-expanding, way beyond anything I've eaten called "Szechuan" elsewhere.  I want to learn, even a little.  Any good books?  I'm looking for guidance on how to think about the food, not just recipes.

I second phatch's suggestion; that is an incredible book. Everything I've made from it has been really delicious and often illuminating. The writing is also wonderful.

Can you let us know how you like it when you get it? As I'm looking at buying it as well.

I read her other book "shark's fin and sichuan pepper"and quite enjoyed it
