Chinese Cookbooks

Pin It
Chinese Cookbooks

my collection of chinese cookbooks, mostly on french patisserie and translated from japanese. i hv alot more chinese than english ones coz its really difficult to find english books on french/japanese patisserie and entremets. most french or japanese books would usually be translated to chinese, seldom are they translated to english so i'm really glad i can read them. i spent a small fortune on these but its still much cheaper than going to pastry school :p

Chinese Cookbooks

i usually buy my books from books kinokuniya, pageone @ vivocity but recently i've taken to buying them online from books.com.tw. they're really efficient and i usually receive my books within TWO days via DHL express. most books are usually cheaper but some would be more expensive. my latest buy is pierre herme's le larousse des desserts and le goût authentique retrouvé by hidemi sugino (in japanese). can't wait to put them into good use!

Ah.. okay, so you can read chinese, I see, in any case, if there's anything you may need from here, let me know.  I admire your skills, and I know how hard it is to get ingredients sometimes (Japan is SOOO expensive, esp raw cream.

I can't wait to see what you make from the cook book = )

hehe thank you :)  thing is, i want ALOT of things from japan!! i wish you could ship pastries and macarons from sadaharu AOKI & hidemi sugino to meeeee haha. oh yea everything is expensive in japan right? but i heard their cream, milk & butter are really good. do you think so?

i can't wait to use my hidemi sugino book, which is in japanese btw. i can't read japanese so i hv to figure out the steps myself. luckily the measurement of ingredients are in french, which i can figure out a little bit.

Pierre Herme 的大師糕點我五分鐘前也剛剛從博客來訂購呢~

Hi, can I check normally which books are cheaper? Cos I tried to order nt$5000 of books and the shipping charges were nt$3000. Btw books on the site are discounted at the moment.
