Cook all your favorite Chinese dishes at home with this easy-to-follow Chinese cookbook!

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.

Favorite Chinese recipes include: Crispy Shrimp Dumplings Kung Pao Chicken Sweet-and-Sour Pork Homestyle Chow Mein Noodles Mongolian Beef And much more... 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.

We loved the orange chicken! Gorgeous food photography, too, plus a great way to prep your chicken to get it silky smooth.

The bouncy shrimp recipe is quite good.

I will be buying my own copy and using it a lot! Great basic recipes, with easy to find ingredients. Many of my favourite Chinese dishes are here. If you are looking for something exotic and unusual this isn't it, but to get clear, simple recipes of the more popular Chinese dishes, this is a great reference. Good pictures of the recipes as well.

This was a nice, refreshing change from the usual 'easy recipe' cookbooks. These recipes ARE easy, for the most part. Some of the techniques (like the dumplings) take some practice, but this book has good instructions & photographs to help the reader accomplish this. Bee Yinn Low doesn't talk down to her audience, another refreshing change.

If you love Chinese food & love to cook, or just want to have a few good, easy, go-to Chinese recipes so you don't always have to call out for delivery, this is a great resource.
