Kylie Kwong's Simple Chinese Cooking Class will take your Chinese cooking knowledge and skills to the next level, as well as providing ideas and inspiration by way of more than 130 new recipes. With Kylie at your side in the kitchen, you can easily expand your repertoire by mastering techniques such as tea-smoking and pickling. Learn how to make your own spring rolls, sticky rice parcels and a versatile XO sauce that will transform seafood or vegetables - even fried rice - with its layers of flavour and complexity. To make the most of your newly acquired skills, try your hand at stir-fried chicken with tea-smoked oysters and pickled chillies, steamed crab custard with enoki mushrooms, stir-fried scallops with XO sauce, or Hokkien noodles with chilli sauce and Chinese cabbage. In no time you'll be rustling up a stir-fried omelette laden with snow peas, fresh herbs and bean sprouts or making a big pot of pork ball and vermicelli soup.

Amelia writes: I have always thought of Kylie Kwong's cookbooks as some of the only ones which gave you direction & ingredients for making Chinese food which actually tastes authentic. This latest book is no exception. It starts out going through essential ingredients and equipment before themed chapters on poultry, meat, seafood etc. Recipes are interspersed with mini how-too classes on things like Chinese-style poultry carving and wonton folding. So far I've tried the Caramelised rice noodles with lamb fillet and the crispy eggplant with sesame sauce both of which were simple and delicious. Also covered in this book is what Kylie calls ‘investment cooking'. When you've the time & inclination, here are some recipes for Chinese pickles, tea-smoked oysters and homemade XO sauce. Have a weekend cook up to make some pantry staples and the recipes will be even easier to put together. If you've ever thought that chinese cooking was just too complex to attempt at home, you should let this book change your mind. In addition to the great recipes, the photography &; design of this book is just gorgeous so it is a delight to read as well as cook from.
