More than twenty years ago, I published Dorothy Huang's Chinese Cooking. Its simple instructions and delicious results made it an instant hit. The book has been reprinted six times and has served as the foundation for my cooking classes. Over the years, I've had the privilege of developing many new, enticing recipes while teaching thousands of students. My students keep asking, "When are you going to write a new cookbook?"
So after years of procrastination, it is with pride that I introduce to you my revised and expanded edition of Chinese Cuisine Made Simple. Of the 160 recipes in the cookbook, over half are new, including all-time favorites such as Chicken in Lettuce Wraps, General Tso's Chicken, Orange Beef, Sesame Chicken, Szechwan Green Beans, Chinese Chicken Salad, and Mongolian Beef. I have personally kitchen-tested each recipe numerous times-- simplifying the preparation, experimenting with timesaving techniques, and adding interesting variations. each recipe combines authentic chinese ingredients with fresh meat, seafood, or vegetables. All are prepared to maximize taste and nutritional value. My students have also tested the recipes, making sure the instructions are clear, concise, and easy enough for the novice to understand, yet authentic enough to satisfy even the most discriminating gourmets.From the Inside Flap:
As Houston's renowned Chinese cooking teacher, Dorothy Huang has taught thousands of people to embrace Chinese cooking in their own homes. It's no wonder her first cookbook, Dorothy Huang's Chinese Cooking, has been reprinted six times. The book's simple instructions and delicious results have engendered huge appeal and acceptance locally and nationally. This revised and expanded version includes even more mouth-watering recipes and beautiful color photographs.
A native of Canton, China, Huang was raised and educated in Taiwan. After completing her master's degree and the University of Houston, she worked as a therapeutic dietitian in hospitals. A short time later, she began her career as a cooking instructor Huang's knowledge of dietetics-- coupled with her own experience in cooking -- convinced her that Chinese food provided an ideal combination of nutritional value, easy preparation, and taste appeal. Throughout the years she has returned to Asia to study and hone her skills under distinguished chefs in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand. From Chicago, Illinois, to McAllen, Texas, and from San Francisco, California, to Boca Raton, Florida, Huang has delivered her own brand of Asian cooking and the latest culinary trends to her eager students. Her reputation as an expert in Chinese cuisine has reached into South America. In Bogota, Colombia, she guided the opening of the upscale China Stars restaurant. Huang not only trained the chefs, she created the menu and assisted in planning and outfitting the kitchens.
Huang's Dim Sum Lunch and Walking Tour of Chinatown in Houston, Texas-- her signature class-- has been featured in regional and national publications. A perpetual favorite among Houstonians, the class frequently has a lengthy waiting list and draws noted chefs as students. Huang has appeared on many television and radio shows. Highly respected as a Chinese food consultant, Huang has developed recipes for major cookware and food companies. She is a member of the Houston Culinary Guild and the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
