Review

Praise for Chinese Food Made Easy: 'Packed with delicious, easy-to-make dishes ... Ching-He Huang is the new face of Chinese cooking.' Heat magazine [five star review on 19/7/08]

About the Author

Ching-He Huang is the new face of Chinese cooking on British tv and the star of BBC2's popular series 'Chinese Food Made Easy'. Born in Taiwan and brought up in South Africa, she moved to Britain when she was 11. Ching has always been passionate about food, so after graduating with a first class degree in economics, she set up Fuge, a fresh salad company and her healthy drinks company, Tzu. Ching is the author of two cookbooks, Chinese Food Made Easy and China Modern. Chinese Food Made Easy was the fifth bestselling cookbook of 2008. Ching also appears regularly on Saturday Kitchen and Daily Cooks.

Format: Hardcover
This cookbook is a good source for some very quick, easy, and very tasty Chinese recipes. It's from the same cook who did the BBC series Chinese Food Made Easy. There is a good selection of chicken, pork, beef, tofu (dofu), and seafood dishes. However, getting all the ingredients for some recipes will likely require going to an Asian grocery store or even ordering on-line if you are not doing a lot of Chinese cooking already. You'll need fermented black soybeans, fresh shiitake, oyster, and enoki mushrooms, yellow bean paste, and Sichuan peppercorns along with the more common Chinese five-spice powder and fresh ginger, chili, and garlic.

Once you gather all the ingredients, some good choices are Juicy Chilli Chicken and Cashew Nuts, Oriental Mushrooms and Dofu in Garlic Black Bean Sauce, Saucy Beef Dofu, Griddled Yellow-bean Pork or Sichuan-style sweet-and-sour shrimp.

This book was created to accompany a TV show which ran on Five TV in the UK so you can also find the recipes along with an episode guide and film clips on-line at their web site, [...]. If you manage to find the full episodes on-line, they are well worth watching.

The book is a great source of easy and fast to cook delicious Chinese dishes! I wasn't aware that the Kindle edition comes without any of the photographs, pictures or illustrations found in the hardcover book. That's a big turn off for me!
