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.

With The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook you will:

  • Quickly learn to make meals that swap out heavily battered ingredients and saturated fats for flavorful meats, fresh vegetables, and heart healthy oils
  • Enjoy the easy organization of chapters that follow the structure of a Chinese restaurant menu
  • Discover tips for buying and maintaining your wok so you can use it for years to come
  • Master a variety of techniques for cooking and stir-frying your favorite dishes

If you’re looking for a Chinese cookbook that offers healthy recipes with restaurant-quality taste, look no further than The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook.

A Common Table: 80 Recipes and Stories from My Shared Cultures

A Common Table: 80 Recipes and Stories from My Shared Cultures Lowest new price: $19.49
List price: $30.00
Author: Cynthia Chen McTernan

In A Common Table, Two Red Bowls blogger Cynthia Chen McTernan shares more than 80 Asian-inspired, modern recipes that marry food from her Chinese roots, Southern upbringing, and Korean mother-in-law’s table. The book chronicles Cynthia’s story alongside the recipes she and her family eat every day―beginning when she met her husband at law school and ate out of two battered red bowls, through the first years of her legal career in New York, to when she moved to Los Angeles to start a family.

As Cynthia’s life has changed, her cooking has become more diverse. She shares recipes that celebrate both the commonalities and the diversity of cultures: her mother-in-law’s spicy Korean-inspired take on Hawaiian poke, a sticky sesame peanut pie that combines Chinese peanut sesame brittle with the decadence of a Southern pecan pie, and a grilled cheese topped with a crisp fried egg and fiery kimchi. And of course, she shares the basics: how to make soft, pillowy steamed buns; savory pork dumplings; and a simple fried rice that can form the base of any meal. Asian food may have a reputation for having long ingredient lists and complicated instructions, but Cynthia makes it relatable, avoiding hard-to-find ingredients or equipment, and breaking down how to bring Asian flavors home into your own kitchen.

Above all, Cynthia believes that food can bring us together around the same table, no matter where we are from. The message at the heart of A Common Table is that the food we make and eat is rarely the product of one culture or moment, but is richly interwoven―and though some dishes might seem new or different, they are often more alike than they appear.

The Breath of a Wok

The Breath of a Wok Lowest new price: $11.68
Lowest used price: $5.35
List price: $37.50
Author: Grace Young
Brand: Brand: Simon n Schuster

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.
