Overview

FOREWORD
The title of this book expresses the intent and purpose for which it was written. You will find that the key to great Chinese cooking lies in learning to enjoy yourself foremost and letting everything else follow.
This book will guide you through the simple techniques necessary for preparing the basic ingredients contained in the easy-to-follow recipes. The recipes have been developed and tested in Chinese cooking classes, along with a few personal favorites that have been handed down from family generations. Suggestions for meal planning have been reduced to a simple chart, for quick and easy reference.
The highly nutritious ingredients and quick sealing cooking methods of Chinese cooking are consistent with the emergence of a health and diet oriented society. The informal Chinese dinner is especially suited for today's life styles. Nutritious, economical and easy to prepare, Chinese food also happens to be very delicious. Thus, this book's emphasis has been placed upon the preparation of dishes used in everyday Chinese meals.
As you gain proficiency and personal confidence in Chinese cooking you will find this book helpful in adapting various recipes to your own personal tastes and experimenting with different ingredients to achieve a desired result. I encourage all my students and readers to go beyond the recipes, substitute ingredients, and - most importantly - have fun and Enjoy Chinese Cooking.
