Described by Craig Claiborne as "one of the world's leading authorities on Chinese cooking," Ken Hom is also a master of quick cuisine. Ken Hom's Quick and Easy Chinese Cooking dishes up delicious Chinese fare in mere minutes with mouth-watering recipes and quick tips for healthy, nourishing meals in no time. Shopping lists, itemized preparation and cooking times, menu suggestions, and strategies for shortcuts beat the clock with everything from appetizers and soups to main dishes and desserts. Designed for today's household running on a hectic schedule, as well as for the cook who wants a gratifying dinner without much fuss, this book satisfies with home-cooked meals organized ahead of time, or tasty treats whipped up in minutes. In an era when even discerning cooks are tempted to compromise to save time, Ken Hom comes to the rescue with Ten Minute Salmon with Green Onion Sauce, or Papaya and Grapefruit Salad.
