    With reguard to Wok Hei, I find that my best stir fry happens when I have to panic due to the wok being so hot. If I dont have to work like mad, it just turns out ok.

    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I picked up a copy of Grace Young's "Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge" a couple weeks ago. Her first book is "Breath of a Wok" which VI has already mentioned in this thread. Besides a lot of recipes, she really gives some great advice of what you need for great stir frying up to and including Wok Hei. There is a good portion of the book dedicated to everything from necessary equipment, essential sauces and spices for your stir fry pantry (including recommended brands), and breakdowns of herbs, peppers, proteins, etc and what they should be used for. I made a shopping list from this book and will be headed to the Twin Cities this weekend to a couple of Asian markets. I am completely satisfied with this book as a starter, and I'm sure either of her books would serve you well. I think it was around $24 on Amazon.
