Good concept, and looked good, however way too much ginger flavor for my taste. Couldn't even finish my helping.

This is very good and deserves to be tried by more chefs. I used less ginger than called for and canned mandarins in addition to fresh but otherwise followed the recipe.It was wonderful.
