My friends Clara and Les Luxford gave me this book decades ago, with the inscription "The taste of food is not to be shared by anyone, except those who already agree with you." A magnificent book that shares the rich and the modest recipes of every region in China, interspersed with wonderful quotes from imperial cookbooks from the various dynasties. I owe this book, and the Luxfords, a great deal.
