Came across this thread while 'browsing' around. I have a suggestion to make if it is not too late...
If there is a specific recipe you are thinking of - google it, the suggestions that pop up will allow you to browse thru them and choose your idea of the most authentic ones. Keep in mind that if you are not actually residing in Asia you may not have any choice but to adjust your recipe and "westernize" it.
I have been to a site/blog... she is Chinese, lives in China and I have liked what I've read so far! Try chinasichuanfood.com
Good luck and let us know some of the recipes you've found and been successful with. LOL or even NOT successful! just so we can avoid the same mistakes.
There is another recipe book I'm thinking off but can't remember at the moment. Arghh... chinese restaurant in Australia. I've made their fire cracker shrimp and they are wonderful. I will post when I find it again and let you know.. it is definitely a recipe book I would not mind getting my hands on.
