(1 review) Write a Review

Chinese is the UK's favourite takeout food, and it's beloved all over the world - as with much Indian food, it's the nostalgic, comforting creations for western palates that really get people salivating. Now you can make your favourite Chinese restaurant classics at home with Kwoklyn Wan's fabulous Chinese Takeaway Cookbook.

Kwoklyn is a third-generation Chinese chef: BBC (British-Born Chinese). He's also the brother of TV celebrity Gok Wan and both boys grew up working in their family's Cantonese Restaurant in Leicester in the 1970s.

He has spent years perfecting recipes for Chinese dishes that taste like the ones from your local takeaway kitchen or restaurant. The book features 70 classic dishes, everything from sweet and sour chicken to char siu, prawn toast to chop suey, egg-fried rice to crispy seaweed - and most of them can be on the table in 20 minutes or less.

Cook up a storm at home with Kwoklyn's fabulous take on food from the takeaway.
