I ve eaten at Melbourne s trendy Chin Chin restaurant only once, but it was a memorable culinary experience I fully intend to eat there again and I may have to plan a trip to Melbourne with that goal in mind Until I get back to Melbourne looking at the recipes in this cookbook and maybe trying some of them will have to keep me going I ll probably start with a fantastic dessert palm sugar ice cream sundae with honeycomb and lime syrup Yum Melanie 2016 Some good tips with introducing essential asian ingredients however the recipes themselves are extremely disappointing The balance of flavours are completely off which shows this book was either slapped together or ingredients are deliberately left out of the recipes.When you title a product ie the book Chinchin it should also reflect very closely what it is.This book is an absolute waste of money and time You can get betterhonest recipes online. Fantastic photography and design The chilli rating and cook time icons are a great idea as is the recipe hack feature, which makes the recipesaccessible to your average home cook although I d say the book isappropriate for experienced home cooks and chefs There s some really useful info about Thai cooking ingredients including substitutes and stockists , techniques, cooling and chilli plates and making curries and curry pastes My favourite recipe so far has been the Grilled ti Fantastic photography and design The chilli rating and cook time icons are a great idea as is the recipe hack feature, which makes the recipesaccessible to your average home cook although I d say the book isappropriate for experienced home cooks and chefs There s some really useful info about Thai cooking ingredients including substitutes and stockists , techniques, cooling and chilli plates and making curries and curry pastes My favourite recipe so far has been the Grilled tiger prawns with Vietnamese coleslaw and apple soy.However, I ve come across a number of unclear instructions and mistakes, such as incorrect measurements and cooking times The recipes have obviously not been tested After three bad experiences I ve been put off trying any other recipes because of the stress and disappointment I also found the intro a bit self indulgent it could have been cut in half You can really tell that this book was self published It s a shame the recipes are so poorly written Overall, a disappointment ( READ EBOOK ) ☧ Chin Chin: The Book ⚖ It s been nearly six months since we heard it was in the works, but Chin Chin The Book is finally ready for consumption and if the lines outside the Flinders Lane Melbourne, Australia establishment are anything to judge by, the public s obsession with Chris Lucas runaway success hasn t dulled in the slightest Designed to be the literary equivalent of a trip to the restaurant itself, thepage tome is appropriately colourful, cheeky and offbeatIntended as a practical cookbook for the home, the recipes allow fans to duplicate the searing, intense flavours of dishes such as chilli salt chicken wings, son in law eggs, beef pad seuw and from their own kitchensChin Chin The Book also doubles as a story a document of the phenomenon that has dominated culinary headlines for the past two years A collage of ideas, theories and flavours, the book is, like the restaurant, a pastiche of all that defines st century Melbourne laneway aesthetics with a refined palate and a knack for spinning a taleTo make the cooking process a little easier tackling Benjamin Cooper s dishes can be understandably intimidating at first , the book also includes Recipe Hacks under certain recipes that offer helpful advice or neat shortcutsBeautiful, crisp photography from Adrian Lander blends with vivid comic art by Sacha Bryning to capture the carefully designed irreverence of one of Melbourne s brightest lights, and with recipes like these at your fingertips, you re only a jam packed dining room and carefully curated soundtrack away from actually being there David Urwin Chin Chin The Book hits the shelves The Broadsheet,October
