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, such as Crispy Shrimp Dumplings, Kung Pao Chicken, Sweet-and-Sour Pork, Homestyle Chow Mein Noodles and Mongolian Beef.
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.

      Comments about Easy Chinese Recipes:

      No doubt , Bee's recipe site is awesome and this recipe is really neat and the detail was good and easy enough to understand, but since Bee is originate from Malaysia, I was expecting some nice Malaysia Chinese's cuisine in this book.....

      Comment on this review

      "Plumb Bee's debut cookbook and you'll find interesting nuggets of information that sheAEs plucked from Asian kitchens. To frame her book "easy" is to downgrade it because "easy" often connotes shortcuts. In reality, the book is dotted with nifty tidbits to help you understand certain aspects of Chinese cooking."--"VietWorldKitchen.com"
