When your cooking has to be fast and furious, this book will supply the inspiration - all you need is a wok! You can create 100 healthy, quick to cook and easy to eat recipes, sizzling starters, snacks, fast family meals and swift supper dishes, ranging from simple vegetable dishes to more elaborate dinner party food, from exotic dishes to Western-style meals and from traditional favourites to innovative originals. The easy-to-follow step-by-step format takes you through each stage of preparation and a photograph of every finished dish will show what you are aiming to achieve. Using a wok to stir-fry food means that far less fat is absorbed than with conventional cooking, so the dishes are good for you, too. The introduction describes the different types of wok, with ideas for using alternatives so that you don't need to buy specialized equipment, advice on caring for your wok and methods of preparing ingredients; and there is also a complete guide to selecting oils, sauces, herbs and spices for authentic oriental flavours.
