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.

    Ching actually owns her own food company and whilst she is not a restauranteur, anyone who knows her cooking can see this is a modern take on Chinese food.
    I cannot believe you are dissing her as she is very talented.
    She can also cook the authentic and I believe this book has Dim Sum receipes too!

    she is a business woman, has a business background before being on tv chef, she's not a proper chef ... that's where i was coming from. doesnt matter, i wouldnt go to her restaurant if she had one in chinatown it will only be frequented by non-chinese and her business partners.

    so muffin 247 any chance u'll have a party soon??

    Haven't seen her cook so cant comment. I usually just buy different sauces in Chinese supermarket and put a spoonful or two into the pan and it tastes great already. Black pepper sauce is by far my fav.
