Healthy and easy Chinese cooking at home
500+ Healthy Chinese Recipes is exactly what it claims to be – a guide to making great Chinese food that isn’t dripping with fat. Chef Nicholas Zhou is the author of the book, and has over 40 years of cooking experience and is now sharing his secrets with you.
What you get when you order over 500 healthy Chinese recipes is a huge amount of knowledge from Zhou. You will learn how to cook popular dishes from four different regions of China: Cantonese, Beijing, Szechuwan and Hunan. Each of these styles and regions has their own tastes and cooking techniques that Zhou will guide you through.
However, what Zhou promotes the most is that his recipes reduce the fat content of a Chinese restriction that you and I eat. Most people think eating at a Chinese restaurant is healthy, but in reality, when you order Chinese, more often than not the food is fried and loaded with fat and calories. Zhou promotes cooking techniques such as braising, boiling, simmering, “flavor potting,” and smoking, among others. By using these techniques, along with some traditional frying recipes, Zhou helps you reduce your fat intake and gives you a truly healthy eating experience.
What do you get when you order the cookbook? First, you get over 500 recipes from Zhou himself. You also get a book written by Zhou for beginner cooks, meant to teach you the many different Chinese cooking techniques as a free bonus. Plus, as a free bonus, you get a 150-page glossary on Chinese cuisine, giving you definitions of the various terms, ingredients, and dishes you’ll be preparing. Here’s the best part, in my opinion. Zhou will keep updating his books, and whenever he updates them with new recipes, he will send an email to people who purchased the book with his new recipes.
All this for a low price of $19.97…an incredible amount of culinary knowledge and expertise for that price. It’s a great way for even the most novice cook to start making Chinese food at home today.
