"Katie Chin has done us all a huge favor: she's provided us with recipes for so many of the Chinese dishes we always wanted to cook but have never had clear and easy instructions to prepare...Thank you Katie Chin!" —Martha Stewart

Home chefs will enjoy preparing these Chinese home cooking-inspired dishes with this easy-to-follow Chinese cookbook.

Author Katie Chin's love of cooking blossomed at an early age—watching and later helping her renowned mother, Leeann Chin, prepare delicious Chinese dishes in her popular restaurants. Born in China, Leeann was an award-winning restaurateur and author revered for her ability to demystify Chinese cooking for the American home cook. Katie inherited her mom's passion and talent and has become a respected food writer and television personality in her own right. Sadly, Leeann passed away in 2010, but her recipes live on. Katie is eager to share her mother's food legacy with you in this book—an homage to Leeann's mastery of all that Chinese cooking has to offer.

This treasury of family recipes includes many unique dishes that Leeann developed during a six-decade career in the food business, including time-honored classics that she learned from her mother in China. Some dishes reflect Leeann's Chinese-American childhood or are recipes which Katie and Leeann developed while together. Others are creations that Katie has invented more recently. Woven throughout the book are fond memories and anecdotes from Katie's childhood, always involving cooking and eating with her mom.

Katie Chin's Everyday Chinese Cooking is a celebration of Leeann Chin's fantastic mastery of the complete array of flavors and techniques in Chinese cuisine, and her unique ability to make them accessible to Westerners. Katie provides tips and techniques which allow anyone to create a refined and tasty Chinese meal at home.

Favorite Chinese recipes include:

  • Firecracker Shrimp
  • Mu Shu Pork
  • Peking Duck Summer Rolls
  • General Tso's Chicken
  • Tangerine Beef
  • Hoisin Lacquered Ribs
  • Tea-Smoked Sea Bass
  • Banana Wontons
  • Five Spice Chocolate Cake
  • And much more...

Let yourself be inspired by the exquisite flavors of Leeann and Katie Chin's signature Chinese cuisine!

Review:

"I can think of no tribute more fitting to my mentor Leeann Chin than a published collection of her favorite recipes. Leeann was a visionary and a pioneer in popularizing Chinese cooking in America. She was also one of the culinary icons who inspired me to enter the profession. A thousand thanks to Katie, for allowing the world to remember our good friend Leeann through her best dishes." —Chef Martin Yan, Host of Yan Can Cook, Owner/Chef of M.Y. China Restaurant, San Francisco

"Katie Chin has done us all a huge favor: she's provided us with recipes for so many of the Chinese dishes we always wanted to cook but have never had clear and easy instructions to prepare. Using easy-to-find ingredients, Katie shows us how to make everything from Potstickers to Peking Duck Summer Rolls, Jade Shrimp with Fragrant Vegetables and Beef Chow Fun. And in addition to recipes, the book is infused with stories of a Chinese-American upbringing. Thank you, Katie Chin!" —Martha Stewart, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia

"...this brightly illustrated and well-organized volume offers just what the beginner needs. Unlike some earlier-generation Chinese cookbook authors, Chin is able to take advantage of today's increasing availability of Chinese ingredients throughout America." —Booklist

"Readers who want to stop ordering out and attempt their own Chinese fare will find this to be a helpful guide." —Publishers Weekly

"Katie Chin's book is as much a tale of personal endeavors and triumphs as it is a cookbook. The stories are illuminated by the creative, easy-to-make and craveable recipes that shaped her family's existence. You're simply gonna love this book." —Scott Conant, chef, restaurateur and judge on Food Network's Chopped

"I love Asian cuisines of all flavors, ingredients and techniques. And Katie Chin delivers once again with this new cookbook. Her love and passion for her heritage comes through, proud and delicious. She will guide you through these inspired dishes from her mother, taking you on a tour of the most authentic Chinese flavors without leaving your own kitchen." —Iron Chef Cat Cora, Author, lifestyle entrepreneur and founder of Chefs For Humanity

"Katie Chin honors the remarkable culinary career of Leeann Chin with this cookbook. Whether you love Chinese-American favorites or prefer unexpected delights, you've come to the right book." —Grace Young, author of Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge

"This book is a must, not only for those picking up a wok for the first time but for the culinary Sinophiles as well." —Andrew Zimmern, award-winning host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern
