Not only is Gok Wan one of the UK's top fashion stylists, but he can cook too! His fantastic new book, Gok Cooks Chinese, contains 80 personal and family recipes, which are not only delicious and healthy but incredibly simple to make. His love and passion for Chinese food and cooking techniques shine through from every page.

From his unique perspective he gives us his personal and modern take on the Chinese food that he grew up eating, drawing on his Chinese heritage to give us a different angle on how to eat - for Gok, it's all about sitting down, tucking into fantastic food that is fuss-free and relaxed. His food is about balance, health, flavour and fun.

From his absolute favourite recipe for Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup (which he calls 'happiness in a bowl') to Perfect Fried Rice or classics like his dad's Honey-glazed Char Siu Pork, through chapters on Dim Sum, Street Food, One Pot Wonders and Feasting, you will find recipes for all occasions and moods, whether entertaining friends or enjoying a meal at home by yourself. Above all, Gok will demystify Chinese ingredients and equipment, showing us how easy it is to shop and cook just like him.

About the Author

Acclaimed fashion stylist and on-screen consultant Gok Wan was shot to fame by his Channel 4 Series, How to Look Good Naked. On the back of the show's success, Gok crystallized his position as a true champion for women with Gok's Fashion Fix and Gok's Clothes Roadshow, helping them to feel confident and stylish. This has led to his enormously popular women's wear collection for Sainsbury's, released in October 2011. He has published four books, including his autobiography Through Thick and Thin, and his openness about his own weight issues as a teenager led him to film two searching documentaries, Too Fat Too Young and Gok's Teens: The Naked Truth.

Making shows for all UK broadcasters, Optomen has launched the television careers of household names, including Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay and Valentine Warner.


Great Book


Just like the television series - well worth having in the repertoire



Love Gok, love this recipe book!


The thing I love most about this book is that it remind me of all the receipes my Dad cooked at home and in our restaurant, like Gok I grew up in a Chinese restaurant kitchen and whilst I still cook my Dad's recipes that he was able to show me, there are others that I didn't get to perfect. Gok covers a number of these which border on the restaurant quality home cooking which most people don't get when they go to a Chinese restaurant....his inspiration and recognition of his father and cultural heritage rings through in this book. It's completely authentic and I love it! Highly recommend the Sichuan recipe...a new one for me, had eaten plenty just never cooked it myself! Went down a treat with my friends as well. EnjoyM



No-one cooks it better!


I use this book daily! Full of ideas and inspiration, the whole family loves Gok's food.

Just too easy to cook perfect Chinese

Gotta Love Gok


The recipes are simple enough to cook every day and the flavours are authentic. I think he has simplified recipes but not neccessarily westernised them, which is perfect. I love cooking asian food but haven't done much Chinese yet - that is about to change :)
