About the Author
Ken Hom, born in the United States to immigrant Chinese parents, is considered one of the world's leading authorities on Chinese cooking. He has traveled extensively around the globe collecting recipes and techniques for his unique style of "fusion" cooking. As a culinary professor, Ken realized that it was only when he demonstrated techniques to his students that they really understood them and could go on to do them with confidence. Ken developed a step-by-step approach which became a basis of his teaching and which he also used as a broadcaster. This approach forms the backbone of the recipes in Foolproof Chinese Cookery. Ken is the author of many best-selling books, including Travels with a Hot Wok published by Dorling Kindersley, and Illustrated Chinese Cookery, Hot Wok, and the award-winning Easy Family Dishes: A Memoir with Recipes. His cookbooks have sold more than 2 million copies throughout the world. Ken has also hosted a number of highly rated cooking shows in the UK, and is currently featured on the third season of BBC's Great Food series. He is the Consultant Chef for the Oriental Restaurant Group which includes the Yellow River Cafe and restaurants. Ken Hom currently makes his home in the south of France.
