I've loved Chinese food since the first time I went to a restaurant as a child and ordering from the takeaway was an expensive and unhealthy habit of mine at university. I always thought that recreating those flavours out of the restaurant environment was quite impossible - not so!

In this wonderful book, Ching takes the mystery out of delicious Chinese cooking. You're likely to have many of the ingredients in your kitchen already - garlic, root ginger, oil. By taking the illusions out of Chinese

I always steered clear of cooking chinese...till now.

After seeing the excellent TV programme, this book is a delight.

Great recipes, easy to prepare and very tasty.

If you like chinese food don't hesitate to add it to your collection.

This one is going on my wishlist, even though I've just bought myself a Ken Hom book I've yet to fully try out. Both have simple recipes that look achievable and tasty. Ching-He's style is somewhat different as she seems to incorporate more vegetables in her dishes, giving some of them a "healthier" feel. As I'm trying to eat more vegetables her recipes seem like a good fit for me. I'll still be cooking the classics from Ken Hom, but this book could be a good weekday stir-fry guide for me.

A very good chinese cooking book that has alot of recipes that taste great! The recipes are easy to make and simple to do, they are very flavourful, smell great! If you are wanting to try out doing some chinese recipes then this is a great book for you to look at :) The ingredients that are in the recipes aren't hard to find most of them can be found at the local shop which means that there is no excuse for not trying out
There's a real mix of food in this book, and don't let the title fool you into thinking that they're actually easy. You also won't find a lot of your old favourites - no sweet and sour for example. Despite that, this is a great book with easy to follow reliable recipes which produce delicious food.

Easy is a relative term here. I don't cook a lot of Chinese, but the Dan Dan noodles recipe that Kaine uses in Act 2 of Execution is Everything is Ching's... and well worth making.
