DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Enjoy Simple, Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Chinese Dishes with The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook Chinese food is a favorite among many American families. But its harmonious fusion of sweet spice and tangy heat doesn't have to go hand-in-hand with overly sugary sauces, extra salt, greasy meats, or undesired MSG. When Charmaine Ferrara moved from Malaysia to America more than 15 years ago, she was struck by the difference between the American adaptation of Chinese food and the traditional Chinese fare she'd grown up on. Charmaine began experimenting with her wok, recalling how her mother and grandmother made dishes, to recreate the meals she was missing. Since then, she's devoted herself to showing others how simple it is to create delicious Chinese recipes the way they were intended--fresh, flavorful, and light--and in her first Chinese cookbook, Charmaine does exactly that. In The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook Charmaine has combined the flavors of her heritage with her passion and know-how. The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook makes it easy to enjoy healthy takes on classic Chinese food at home. From steaming to stir-fry, this Chinese cookbook will help you harness the simple power of your versatile wok to make more than 85 healthy, tasty dishes.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Award-winning author Grace Young celebrates and demystifies the art of wok cooking for the Western home cook. When Grace Young was a child, her father instilled in her a lasting appreciation of wok hay, the highly prized but elusive taste that food achieves when properly stir-fried in a wok. As an adult, Young aspired to create that taste in her own kitchen. Grace Young's quest to master wok cooking led her throughout the United States, Hong Kong, and mainland China. Along with award-winning photographer Alan Richardson, Young sought the advice of home cooks, professional chefs, and esteemed culinary teachers like Cecilia Chiang, Florence Lin, and Ken Hom. Their instructions, stories, and recipes, gathered in this richly designed and illustrated volume, offer not only expert lessons in the art of wok cooking, but also capture a beautiful and timeless way of life. With its emphasis on cooking with all the senses, The Breath of a Wok brings the techniques and flavors of old-world wok cooking into today's kitchen, enabling anyone to stir-fry with wok hay. IACP award-winner Young details the fundamentals of selecting, seasoning, and caring for a wok, as well as the range of the wok's uses; this surprisingly inexpensive utensil serves as the ultimate multipurpose kitchen tool. The 125 recipes are a testament to the versatility of the wok, with stir-fried, smoked, pan-fried, braised, boiled, poached, steamed, and deep-fried dishes that include not only the classics of wok cooking, like Kung Pao Chicken and Moo Shoo Pork, but also unusual dishes like Sizzling Pepper and Salt Shrimp, Three Teacup Chicken, and Scallion and Ginger Lo Mein. Young's elegant prose and Richardson's extraordinary photographs create a unique and unforgettable picture of artisan wok makers in mainland China, street markets in Hong Kong, and a "wok-a-thon" in which Young's family of aunties, uncles, and cousins cooks together in a lively exchange of recipes and stories. A visit with author Amy Tan also becomes a family event when Tan and her sisters prepare New Year's dumplings. Additionally, there are menus for family-style meals and for Chinese New Year festivities, an illustrated glossary, and a source guide to purchasing ingredients, woks, and accessories. Written with the intimacy of a memoir and the immediacy of a travelogue, this recipe-rich volume is a celebration of cultural and culinary delights.
