Product description

Growing up in a Chinese household in Malaysia where cuisine and culture were inseparable, Bee Yinn Low developed a deep love and appreciation for food. Her early memories of helping her mother prepare steamy and fragrant Chinese meals solidified into a way of life for Bee as a working woman in Southern California. A love of Chinese food didn't translate well to a modern Western lifestyle due to time and ingredient constraints. Rather than give up her favorite foods, Bee experimented with recreating the unforgettable flavors of her youth with her limited time and using ingredients found in local supermarkets. She managed to develop versions of her favorite Chinese dishes that had all the taste--but were a lot less work! In "Easy Chinese Recipes, " Bee shares her passion and expertise in Chinese cooking. It features a collection of Bee's all-time favorite dishes--the foods she loves to cook and eat at home. She includes updated traditional family recipes along with her own versions of the best Chinese restaurant dishes from around Asia, such as Crispy Shrimp Dumplings, Kung Pao Chicken, Sweet-and-Sour Pork, Homestyle Chow Mein Noodles and Mongolian Beef. Building off her passion, expertise and the avid following she has on her website, "rasamalaysia.com, " the Internet's most popular Asian food and cooking site, "Easy Chinese Recipes" is sure to become the go-to book for cooks interested in creating Chinese meals at home.

Review quote

"One of the first things I do with a new cookbook is thumb through the pages to get the feel for the layout. Low's book has great photos of the dishes and photos showing tips/techniques; I wouldn't expect anything less from a world-renowned blogger (http: //www.rasamalaysia.com/). A few more likes, especially appreciated in ethnic cookbooks, are the chapters containing cooking tips and techniques; description of equipment and utensils; and, more importantly, a description of ingredients with photo's of the common brands of bottled and jarred sauces/condiments. I may not be able to read Chinese, but I'm pretty good at matching pictures."--"TheDaringKitchen.com"
