Sweet Mandarin is a nicely done cookbook with great instructions and pictures. I have a few standouts tabbed for trying. I made the Peninsula style chicken with cashew nuts but changed it up a little - it was really delicious. The instructions are written clearly and the ingredients were not difficult for me to find here in Denver. Most ingredients, if not accessible easily in your Asian section at the market, can be ordered online. One of the things that I loved about this book is that it does have a small dessert and cocktail section. Many Asian cookbooks have very limited recipes on the sweet side.
