Win­ner for the UK in the Gour­mand World Cook­book Awards 2020 in the Easy Recipes category.

As always, Ching’s recipes are not only deli­cious­ly healthy but easy enough for any­one to have a go at and enjoy.’ — Tom Ker­ridge

Per­fect for saute­ing, brais­ing, fry­ing and steam­ing, cook­ing with a wok is a way of life all over Asia. In Wok On, best­selling author Ching-He Huang cel­e­brates the huge ver­sa­til­i­ty of this mag­i­cal 2,000-year-old cook­ing pot with a mod­ern col­lec­tion of recipes that are sim­ple enough for every day as well as every cook.

Fea­tur­ing dish­es from across Asia, includ­ing Tai­wan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Macau, almost every recipe can be made in 30 min­utes or less and has been cre­at­ed with nutri­tion, taste and afford­abil­i­ty in mind. Many are suit­able for those with gluten and dairy aller­gies, and because Asian food typ­i­cal­ly includes lots of veg­eta­bles, many are also veg­e­tar­i­an or veg­an too.

Meet Ching-He Huang

Ching is an Inter­na­tion­al Emmy nom­i­nat­ed TV chef & cook­ery author who has become an ambas­sador of Chi­nese cook­ing around the world. Born in Tai­wan, raised in South Africa and U.K., cook­ery was a vital con­nec­tion between Ching and her Chi­nese heritage.

Ching’s approach to cook­ery stems from the tra­di­tion­al cook­ing and lifestyles of her farm­ing com­mu­ni­ty grand­par­ents in South­ern Tai­wan, and these are her major food influences.

Her cre­ative food ethos is to use fresh, organ­ic and eth­i­cal­ly sourced ingre­di­ents to cre­ate mod­ern dish­es with Chi­nese her­itage, fus­ing tra­di­tion and inno­va­tion. Ching strives to bridge cul­tur­al under­stand­ing through food, mak­ing Chi­nese cook­ing acces­si­ble, healthy and nutri­tious, appeal­ing to both the East and West.
