I was the best of cookbooks, it was the worst of cookbooks

I thought that Classic Chinese Cooking was a keeper, because the first four recipes were all great. But then the fifth was really bad.

Velvet corn soup is an easy and delicious corn soup.

Pan-fried noodles with mushrooms has a fabulous sauce

Crispy noodles with vegetable was pretty much a mess. A few noodles turned out well, but most didn't cook properly. And even the vegetables weren't particularly appetizing. If this had seemed like a risky recipe to prepare, I might have selected another to try. Or if part of the recipe turned out well, I might have thought it worthwhile.

So, this cookbook is already off the shelf.
