Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Don't make assumptions from the title. The Everyday Wok Cookbook is comfort food at its finest—think hush puppies, spaghetti and meatballs and French toast along with scallion pancakes and pot stickers. Author Lorna Yee makes it highly tempting to ditch every other pan in the kitchen after you've used her buying advice to choose the wok of your dreams." 
Edible Seattle 

"This book certainly taught me so much about how to choose and how to season a wok. Done.
But beyond the traditional Chinese recipes, Lorna teaches you how to make some popular American dishes such as buttermilk fried chicken, mac-and-cheese and messy po’ boy sandwiches. Again, all made in a wok. Wow. She makes cooking with the wok so much fun and even if you don’t have a wok, the recipes are easy to make in a skillet and are all are so useful throughout the year."
White on Rice Couple

"...this straightforward book provides recipes for delicious and unique ways to get the most out of your wok."
Voracious (Seattle Weekly)

"Proving that a wok can do more than just stir-fry meats and veggies, Yee (coauthor of The Newlywed Kitchen cookbook and a food writer at Seattle mag) shows readers how to use the ancient kitchen tool to make 'bananas Foster French toast,' spaghetti (with bison meatballs) and 'The Creamiest Mac and Cheese.'"
