Editorial Reviews


As the associate food editor of Whole Living, you better believe that a lot of cookbook galleys cross my desk each week. Every so often there's one that truly embodies the spirit of food and cooking that we foster here at the magazine. So I was delighted to hear about our mag's former food editor (when it was called Body + Soul), Ying Chang Compestine's, brand new Ying's Best One-Dish Meals (Sellers Publishing), available now. --Whole Living Daily

(Ying's Best One-Dish Meals) is a collection of quick and healthy stir-fries, stews and globally-inspired entrees, all bearing the same hallmarks that made Compestine such a success as the former editor for Martha Stewart's Body + Soul magazine. It's healthy food that tastes good too -- Candied Walnuts with Shrimp in Spicy Garlic Sauce, for example, Salmon Pasta with Spicy Tomato Sauce and a quick quinoa dish that uses rotisserie chicken to speed it to the table. --San Jose Mercury News

What makes Compestine's collection stand out from other cookbooks is her balanced and thoughtful approach to incorporating various food types into one-dish meals. While healthful, colorful, and fragrant, there are no unusually challenging recipes here, no hard- to-find ingredients and no allegiance to one particular regional heritage. Rather, Compestine offers cuisine that borrows and blends elements from farms, forests, fields, and waters of many geographic and cultural traditions. --ForeWord Reviews

Children's novelist and cookbook author Compestine offers a slim but palate-expanding collection of flavor-packed meals that come together in a hurry. Compestine's straightforward style and emphasis on ease of preparation will resonate with those who are pressed for time or new to cooking; few recipes call for arcane ingredients or lengthy preparation... harried cooks looking for a simple and flavorful break from routine will find a few new keepers. --Publisher's Weekly

Check out Ying's new book full of simple, quick familiar dishes with a global spin. --Relish Magazine

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Zora on October 30, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The idea of one dish meal is brilliant. All the dishes have a mixture of vegetable and meat or seafood that makes it possible to just cook one dish for dinner. And I found quite a few very handy recipes that are easy to make and are DELICIOUS. My favorite is the salmon and tomato with Spinach spaghetti. The process is simple and the dish is yummy and beautiful with the green and red well coordinated. I like that the writer balances nutrition and taste in her recipes which I do care. The influence of Asian and other exotic cooking is evident in the book - another factor that makes this book stand out among all the cooking books. I just do not see many cooking books that teach you how to cook infusion foods. Besides the recipe itself, the writing is very personable and easy to follow. I highly recommend it if you do not have too much time to cook but have high expectation of your foods.
