Although Chinese New Year has not thus far been mentioned on Maison Cupcake, today at the tail end of the celebrations, I am giving away this copy of Ching’s Chinese Food in Minutes by Ching-he Huang published by Harper Collins.
With over 220 pages, Ching’s book features all manner of Chinese dishes with the emphasis being on those which are speedy to prepare. Chapters are straightforward including pork, chicken, duck, fish, shellfish and vegetarian or side dishes. There are also some recipes on desserts and drinks and easy entertaining. Each chapter starts with a page giving a rundown of how long each recipe takes, most clock in at 20 minutes or less.
Ching also gives useful sections on menus, looking after your wok, a list of core Chinese store cupboard items and a detailed glossary.
Read more about Ching and see online recipes from her BBC2 television series Chinese Food Made Easy here.
