Easy Chinese Recipes: Family Favorites From Dim Sum to Kung Pao

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 Recip

    Easy chinese recipes: family favorites from dim sum to kung Pao, pretty much says it all. This cookbook is full of the kind of recipes one would get out in a restaurant, from egg drop soup to orange chicken, only you, yes you, can make these at home. Low has demystified the sauces, the ingredients, and the techniques to make the recipes achievable, and yes, easy. This isn’t a huge cookbook but the recipes included are the ones most people do seem to favor. When I read the recipe for shrimp toast I was thinking that no way would this taste like anything I’d get in a restaurant, it was too easy. As my sons and I chowed through the toast I kept thinking, wow, I made this! wow! and it was as good, if not better, than any restaurant.

    We have a place here, pushcart dim sum, that is delicious (and fairly pricey) At home, from this cookbook so far, I’ve made the ribs, the black bean clams, and the pork bun filling, and it’s all been really doable. I am not a stranger to Chinese cooking, I’ve been doing it for many years, but I still like to eat out because restaurant food is just different, and now I am making food that tastes like I ordered it from our favorite Chinese take out.

    Pros:
    well laid out recipes with ingredient list and directions that are easy to read and follow
    Pictures of every recipe
    pictures of some of the trickier techniques
    a good basic explanation of techniques and ingredients in the front of the book
    delicious easy recipes

    Cons: none that I’ve found. quibbles- I like plain white background paper but that isn’t really star reduction worthy.

    *ETA April 12, 2012. I can’t tell you how much I love this book. Everything comes out delicious and looking pretty much like the picture. Out of 14 chinese cookbooks this has become my go to book. I recently did a cook book purge and got rid of over 300, including several Chinese, I just didn’t need them anymore because this is the book I turn to. I make something from it weekly, and it’s such a winner. Make this your fist Chinese cookbook, or your last, either way you will be happy you bought this book.

    My family used to eat out all the time. My parents would always be too tired from work to even think about cooking. After discovering Bee’s website, we cook almost everyday!

    I stumbled onto Bee’s website, RasaMalaysia, when I was looking for a recipe for Shrimp with Mayo and Honey Walnuts for my dad’s birthday a few years ago. The simplicity of her recipes makes it easy for even novice cooks like me to cook restaurant quality dishes. It also takes me less time to prep and cook three of Bee’s dishes than for my Zojirushi rice cooker to cook rice. When I heard about her book, I had to have it. The pictures are professional. The food is colorful, which makes it more appetizing and healthy (since you’re getting a wider range of health benefits from different color food groups). I also love that there’s a list of ingredients with comments/definitions for people who may not be familiar with some of the items and a picture of the brands of sauces that Bee recommends. Her book is detailed and organized.

    Many recipes are not found on the website so don’t miss out! This is a must have for anyone attempting to cook Chinese food. So far all the recipes I’ve made are 100% hit and 0% miss.
    Bee makes authentic Chinese food so you can say bye bye to your local starchy fast food restaurant.

    Anyone who has wanted to learn to cook Chinese food, but felt intimidated by the indgredients, should definitely buy this cookbook!!

    My daughter gave me this cookbook, and I absolutely love it! I have had several Asian cookbooks over the years, but always found them hard to understand,and find some of the ingredients, so I basically gave up trying Chinese recipes. In her cookbook Bee describes the ingredients, shows you what they look like with incredible pictures, and where to find them if your local store doesn’t have what you want….how easy is that!!
    Now i am cooking chinese inspired dishes like an expert, all because of Bee!!!
