This book doesn't need my help to sell, but here I am anyway because it's really that good. Kenji has great advice for selecting your first wok and how to season it. The recipes are amazing and accessible. He recommends all the right ingredients to stock your pantry with, as well as substitutes that work in a pinch. And I must admit, I've tried cooking his dishes in a regular pan and they were still fantastic. At the time of writing this review, I've owned my wok for a week, tried eight recipes from this cookbook, and I'm not turning back. The Wok is my life now.
