A guide to making easy and delicious Chinese food for today's busy lifestyle.

Ken Hom is arguably the West's most famous Chinese chef. Hailed as the man who transformed wok cooking into an art form, he has introduced Chinese cuisine to the tables of royalty, world leaders and countless celebrities. This book is the culmination of a lifetime of experience as a chef, teacher and the host of five hit TV cooking shows.

The recipes are organized by food type and include:

  • Soups, such as hot and sour soup, corn soup with crabmeat, tomato eggflower soup
  • Meats, such as barbecued roast pork, stir-fried beef with ginger, Beijing braised lamb

  • Fish and shellfish, such as crispy fish roll, Szechwan shrimp in chili sauce
  • Vegetables, such as ginger broccoli, stir-fried Chinese greens
  • Rice and noodles, such as egg fried rice, chicken on crispy noodles
  • Desserts, such as sweet almond soup, egg custard, walnut cookies.
