Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Her recipes are beyond amazing, and her photography is just stunning to say the least. "—Babble.com

"And now Bee's authored the cookbook Easy Chinese Recipes, Family Favorites from Dim Sum to Kung Pao, featuring over 80 Chinese recipes perfect for the novice cook and anyone that doesn't have a Chinese restaurant right next door." —FoodieCrush.com

"Plumb Bee's debut cookbook and you'll find interesting nuggets of information that she's plucked from Asian kitchens. To frame her book "easy" is to downgrade it because "easy" often connotes shortcuts. In reality, the book is dotted with nifty tidbits to help you understand certain aspects of Chinese cooking." —VietWorldKitchen.com

"Demystifying basic Chinese cookery, everything is clear, every recipe easily accessible, every one easy to follow in this volume. If new to Chinese cuisine, read the author's passion and perfection as you make every recipe. […] This book is at the top of its genre." —Flavor & Fortune

"One of the first things I do with a new cookbook is thumb through the pages to get the feel for the layout. Low's book has great photos of the dishes and photos showing tips/techniques; I wouldn't expect anything less from a world-renowned blogger (http://www.rasamalaysia.com/). A few more likes, especially appreciated in ethnic cookbooks, are the chapters containing cooking tips and techniques; description of equipment and utensils; and, more importantly, a description of ingredients with photo's of the common brands of bottled and jarred sauces/condiments. I may not be able to read Chinese, but I'm pretty good at matching pictures." —TheDaringKitchen.com

"The theme is "easy," but Low offers an intriguing range of Chinese food, not just pared-down, simple dishes for beginners." —LA Weekly

"Keeping matters simple without descending into the simplistic, Low presents a few dozen standard Chinese recipes from both Cantonese and Sichuan traditions." —Booklist

"The book is a labor of love for Low, who in addition to penning the recipes and explanations, also styled and shot the food—in all 80 Chinese dishes harvested from her blog entries. You will find popular Chinese classics like Fried Rice, Tea Leaf Eggs, as well as dim sum items that Low has perfected at home, and American favorites like Mongolian Beef, and Beef with Broccoli. This book is ideal for beginner cooks and those looking for some simple, mid-week meal ideas." — Flavours Magazine

Library Journal
Readers looking to re-create their favorite dim sums and Chinese restaurant dishes will love Low's first cookbook, which includes easy recipes for dumplings, stir-fries, noodles, soups, and other well-known dishes. In introductory guides to equipment, techniques, and ingredients, Low deftly explains how novice cooks can better achieve authentic flavors and textures. For example, she suggests soaking shrimp in an egg-white and starch mixture to create a crisp, "bouncy" mouth feel. Fans of Low's popular blog, Rasa Malaysia (rasamalaysia.com), will appreciate new recipes and recognize Low's voice, photography, and food styling.
