"Apparently I no longer need any of my other pans. No surprise, Chris Toy has gathered another stellar collection of recipes that are approachable and interesting. He writes about ingredients and techniques with such charm and clarity that any cook will have success and learn not just about cooking in a wok but the history and the provenance of many classic and not-so-classic dishes. My brand new copy is already dog-eared and stained with hoisin sauce." —Annie B. Copps, chef, cookbook author, culinary instructor, and co-founder of The Readable Feast

If cooking Chinese food intimidates you, never fear—Chris' cookbooks cut through the mystery and make it all accessible for home cooks. His explanations are detailed and clear, from his instructions on the care and maintenance of your wok (who knew there were so many different kinds?) to his suggestions for stocking your pantry. Soak in Toy's knowledge of woks, and you'll soon be searching for his wisdom on preparing ramen, rice, dumplings, and other favorites of Asian cuisine." —Meredith Goad, food writer

These recipes are easy to follow and the soul of each dish is explained beautifully. Chris Toys shows you not only how to make take-out favorites at home but why each step and method is important !" —Ali Waks Adams, chef and pop up producer
