About Stir Crazy - 100 deliciously healthy stir-fry recipes
Talking about her book, Ching said: "I am obsessed with Stir Fries – you could say a bit ‘crazy’ about them. And why not? Stir-frying is not only quick and easy, it also requires very little equipment – all you need is a wok, a knife and a chopping board!
"In this book, I teach you what differentiates a good stir-fry from a great one! It’s not always so easy to master and it is not about throwing all the ingredients in at once and hoping for the best! Indeed, it is all about timing, knowing when to add what and how to get the best out of each ingredient to get that crisp finish and smokey ‘wok hei’ flavour that Chinese masters are mad about!
"In Stir Crazy, I have gathered together a collection of delicious stir-fry recipes for busy people, dishes that are simple enough for everyday healthy cooking at home, with nutrition, taste, affordability and balance in mind.
"With tips on controlling the heat, to choosing the right oils, I focus on simple preparation so if you have little or no cooking experience – you will be well on your way! Or if you are a foodie, there’s plenty of wok inspiration for you. Many of the recipes are gluten and dairy free, as well as suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and include both Asian and Western ingredients readily available in any supermarket.
"So whether or not you eat meat, love carbs or prefer to avoid them, want something special or find yourself having to feed your family in a hurry, all you need to do is pick up this book and my Lotus wok of course!"
