Overview

Cook all your favorite Chinese dishes at home with this easy-to-follow Chinese cookbook!

Growing up in a Chinese household in Malaysia where cuisine and culture were inseparable, Bee Yinn Low developed a deep love and appreciation for food. Her early memories of helping her mother prepare steamy and fragrant Chinese meals solidified into a way of life for Bee as a working woman in Southern California. A love of Chinese food didn't translate well to a modern Western lifestyle due to time and ingredient constraints.

Rather than give up her favorite foods, Bee experimented with recreating the unforgettable flavors of her youth with her limited time and using ingredients found in local supermarkets. She managed to develop versions of her favorite Chinese dishes that had all the taste—but were a lot less work!

In Easy Chinese Recipes, Bee shares her passion and expertise in Chinese cooking. It features a collection of Bee's all-time favorite dishes—the foods she loves to cook and eat at home. She includes updated traditional family recipes along with her own versions of the best Chinese restaurant dishes from around Asia.

Favorite Chinese recipes include:

  • Crispy Shrimp Dumplings
  • Kung Pao Chicken
  • Sweet-and-Sour Pork
  • Homestyle Chow Mein Noodles
  • Mongolian Beef
  • And much more…
Building off her passion, expertise and the avid following she has on her website, rasamalaysia.com, the Internet's most popular Asian food and cooking site, Easy Chinese Recipes is sure to become the go-to book for cooks interested in creating Chinese meals at home.

I've been following Bee's blog for a long time now and i've made many recipes from her blog. They've always been tasty and so simple to do. I"m not into complicated recipes where the ingredient list is it's own book. :) These are tasty! My picky boyfriend is always asking for specific recipes (kung pao chicken, orange chicken). Even he was able to be pleased. I have so many favorites I can't count. The book proves to be just as wonderul and delicious. I just got the ebook a few days ago and I haven't made anything just yet. But I read all the recipes and can't wait to dive in. :) The photos are so beautiful and look so good, i want to eat the pages. lol. Thank you, Bee ;)
