Cookbook finds from around Madison.

Wokcraft, published in 1972, features totally groovy illustrations by Win Ng of Taylor and Ng fame, as well as an informative introduction to Chinese cooking utensils and ingredients.

If you ever wanted to know how to clean a monkfish, or clean pesky beet juice stains, Julia’s got you covered.
