Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Beef in oyster sauce

    • redjanet on January 07, 2014

      This is a really delicious, simple and quick meal that is perfect for a week night. It goes beautifully with rice and the baby pak choy adds an extra element to the dish, though I also recently used pointed spring cabbage instead, which also worked very well.

  • Sichuan orange beef

    • FJT on September 27, 2018

      We really enjoyed this dish. The beef doesn't really pick up much of the marinade even though I marinaded it for several hours (she suggests just 15 minutes), but the mushrooms cooked in the marinade are delicious. We'll make this again, but with more marinade / sauce.

  • Spiced beef stir-fry topped with spring onion and coriander

    • FJT on September 28, 2018

      This is certainly well-spiced and is to be recommended if your sinuses need clearing out! I looked at the ingredients for the spicy coating and decided that 2 tablespoons of chilli flakes for 400g of beef was going to be totally overpowering, so I halved it. We now wish I'd reduced it yet further. Before our mouths were tingling too much to taste anything, we agreed that overall it was very tasty and with fewer chilli flakes this would be a nice dish.

Publishers Text

Ching-He Huang is one of the brightest stars in modern Chinese cooking in the UK. Each week in her new BBC2 series she re-invents the nation's favourite Chinese dishes, modernising them with fresh, easy to buy ingredients, and offering simple practical tips and techniques. These are brought together in this beautiful book to accompany the series. Drawing on the experiences of top chefs, her family and friends, growers and producers and celebrity enthusiasts Ching sets out to discover the best Chinese cooking in the UK today, introducing easy-to-make Chinese food to sometimes resistant Brits, and painting a picture of modern Anglo-Chinese life in the UK as she goes. Chinese Food Made Easy begins with some of the most familiar dishes from a Chinese takeaway menu - Sweet & Sour Prawns, Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Chop Suey and Cantonese Vegetable Stir Fry, each with Ching's special and imaginative twist. Later we explore spicy Szechuan food: Noodles, Dumplings and Dim sum; Seafood; Fast Food; Desserts and finally Celebratory Food, where Ching presents a complete banquet of dishes to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Ching's knowledge, charm and enthusiasm shine through as she shares the 'basic principles' of Chinese cooking including some of the simple techniques and tips taught by her grandparents for tasty results. Using ingredients from high-street supermarkets and some imaginative suggestions for alternative ingredients, these classic Chinese dishes are updated, fresh and healthily prepared so that anyone can make and enjoy them.
