Ken Hom was raised in Chicago, Illinois, where he learned to cook in his uncle's Chinese restaurant. He is the author of 28 cookbooks and has a range of exclusive wok cookware.

A guide to making easy and delicious Chinese food for today's busy lifestyle.

Hailed as the man who transformed wok cooking into an art form, he has introduced Chinese cuisine to the tables of royalty, world leaders and countless celebrities. This book is the culmination of a lifetime of experience as a chef, teacher and the host of five hit TV cooking shows.

    This book is good. But needed more detail especially photos. Need more photos,photos and photos of the dishes that features. 'Cause if you can't see what is suppose to look like after you cook it, than how you know it's right. And more photo of ingredients like herbs and certain spices. You can't just walk into any grocer store and said" I need basil" . Not all grocery store clerk are train to know the herb type without a photo to show them. But that's my thought for this book. It's a great book. Love it.
