This book is one of my absolute favorites. The recipes are full of flavor and super healthy. No need to buy Chinese take out if you have this book in your arsenal. Majority of the ingredients are easy to find locally. Ching really gives you the authentic flavor with recipes that you can cook in just thirty minutes; great for weeknights!
