Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Children's novelist and cookbook author Compestine (The Runaway Rice Cake) offers a slim but palate-expanding collection of flavor-packed meals that come together in a hurry. Some dishes like beef stew or Pan-seared Salmon with Lemon-Dill Yogurt Sauce are fairly straightforward, but the bulk of the dishes are mash-ups of Asian and other cuisines: Pan-fried Tofu Salad with Green Tea and Honey Dressing, Paprika Shrimp with Turnips and Walnuts, and Spicy Thai-style Cabbage Salad with Garlic Shrimp, to name a few. Compestine's straightforward style and emphasis on ease of preparation will resonate with those who are pressed for time or new to cooking; few recipes call for arcane ingredients or lengthy preparation. Would-be bakers and dessert lovers will likely be disappointed—the seven recipes here are of the add-some-berries-to-ice-cream variety—but harried cooks looking for a simple and flavorful break from routine will find a few new keepers. (Oct.)
In Mama's Kitchen
With this passion for food, Ying's recipes are fresh and creative, and always healthy.
As the associate food editor of Whole Living, you better believe that a lot of cookbook galleys cross my desk each week. Every so often there's one that truly embodies the spirit of food and cooking that we foster here at the magazine. So I was delighted to hear about our mag's former food editor (when it was called Body + Soul), Ying Chang Compestine's, brand new Ying's Best One-Dish Meals (Sellers Publishing), available now.
San Jose Mercury News
(Ying's Best One-Dish Meals) is a collection of quick and healthy stir-fries, stews and globally-inspired entrees, all bearing the same hallmarks that made Compestine such a success as the former editor for Martha Stewart's Body + Soul magazine. It's healthy food that tastes good too — Candied Walnuts with Shrimp in Spicy Garlic Sauce, for example, Salmon Pasta with Spicy Tomato Sauce and a quick quinoa dish that uses rotisserie chicken to speed it to the table.
ForeWord Reviews
What makes Compestine's collection stand out from other cookbooks is her balanced and thoughtful approach to incorporating various food types into one-dish meals. While healthful, colorful, and fragrant, there are no unusually challenging recipes here, no hard- to-find ingredients and no allegiance to one particular regional heritage. Rather, Compestine offers cuisine that borrows and blends elements from farms, forests, fields, and waters of many geographic and cultural traditions.
