I have had this book for a couple of weeks now. I have read through the entire book, and have made 5 of the recipes so far.
The recipes are extremely simple and most take less than a half hour from start to clean-up.The tools you will need the most are a wok, a cutting board, and a good knife. I don't have a wok, so I have been using a heavy frying pan, which works fine. Most of the ingredients can be found at any decent grocery store, though a few things, such as miren and yellow bean paste may have to come from a specialty store. I have skipped or substituted these items and still had excellent results. She includes a list of her 10 most popular ingredients in the first chapter; stock up on these and you can make almost everything in the book. Most of the recipes make two generous portions, so if you are cooking for a family you will need to double or triple the amounts. This is not a classical Chinese cookbook, the author has crossed borders liberally and added her own spin to most of the recipes, so don't expect your usual Chinese take out fare, this is lighter, healthier, and I think tastier than anything I have ordered out.

Format: Hardcover
True to its subtitle, Ching's Everyday Easy Chinese gives you a selection of quick and healthy recipes. But you better have a well-stocked Asian market within your shopping area. The recipes are within reach of any reasonably good home cook; they are well written, easy to follow and laid out very well on single pages, many with full-page photo illustrations. Each has prep and cooking time at a glance. Prep times are very conservative for the average home cook and you can easy double them to be reasonable. Many assume that you have some ingredients already sitting on your counter (e.g. cooked deveined shrimp). Cooking time is also somewhat on the short side unless you are a truly accomplished cook. Nevertheless, most recipes have prep time within 10 minutes--these are still considered quick work for a weekday meal. Each recipe is headed by head notes, much from the author's family or professional experience. A two-page introduction precedes every chapter; again these are mostly stories from the author's life. A five-page review of equipment and techniques and a six-page glossary end the cookbook. A total of 20 photos showing the author is overwhelming. The well cross-referenced index is very good.

This book is one of my absolute favorites. The recipes are full of flavor and super healthy. No need to buy Chinese take out if you have this book in your arsenal. Majority of the ingredients are easy to find locally. Ching really gives you the authentic flavor with recipes that you can cook in just thirty minutes; great for weeknights!

I've been cooking Chinese food since I was a teenager and am a big fan of all kinds of Asian cuisine. However, if you live in most parts of the US except for large urban areas, Chinese and Asian food can often be limited to American-styled standards that don't really resemble the food you eat in China, Japan and other Asian countries. So if you enjoy gourmet cooking and want light, elegant and unusual-flavored cuisine with an Asian flair, this cookbook easy but amazing dishes to bring Asia to your table.

How about Chinese food for breakfast? I was amused to see one of my hurry-up breakfast favorites that I thought I'd invented as the first breakfast recipe in this book. It's toast with avocado and fried egg. And of course, there is a recipe for Congee, which is a rice soup that is eaten for breakfast in various forms all over China, Japan and Thailand among other places. It's porridge, basically, with rice but not sweet. This porridge is usually flavored with savory and fermented garnishes to stimulate the appetite in hot climates. There is a version here with oatmeal, which is welcome as I love oatmeal and always look for new ways to make it. And there are omelets with spicy chili flavorings. The advantage of Chinese breakfast dishes is they are missing the sugary syrups and cakes of American breakfasts and typically higher in protein. The disadvantage of these recipes is that ingredients like fermented tofu and pork floss are not favorite items of mine, and where to get "century eggs" or even duck eggs. But you can adapt the ideas to hard boiled egg and left over pork roast, for example.

The best part of the book in my opinion, is the handling of seafood.

I got this recipe book to accompany my new Wok, it offers many easy to make recipes from across the board, from simple stir fry to deep frying and includes instructions in the end for best care and practices for the Wok and other utensils. The recipes are easy to follow and many have pictures to show their outcome, however, I wish more of them included pictures. The recipes are well written allowing cooks from all levels to easily complete the dish and many ingredients offers alternatives or optional status for items that may be hard to find.

In the end this is a great cookbook with great recipes that are delicious!!! I cannot wait to make some dumplings, since she talks about how to deep fry your own dumplings in the book!! My only complain is that I wish their were more pictures to accompany the recipe, so that I have an idea of what to work toward, however, other than that it is a great book and a must for any kitchen!!!
