In a country which adores Chinese food, why do we find it so hard to cook Chinese food ourselves? Ching believes that once you’ve broken down the methodology of a great stir-fry or a tasty braising dish, the rest will come naturally. The missing ingredient is often a touch of confidence.
Ching also praises the versatility of the mighty wok, which her new cookbook focuses on. Not many of us think about braising using their wok. Or have you ever thought about steam cooking using a wok? “If you can steam in a pan, you can also steam in a wok,” claims Ching, who encourages us to think outside the wok.
Sustainability also comes to the forefront of our discussion and conveniently, Ching believes that Chinese food often naturally lends itself to vegan recipes. Most of the time, Chinese cooking is naturally vegan (so long as you don’t add an egg) because dairy is not a food group often used.
Take some time out of your busy schedule this week, pop the delicious. podcast on and have a listen to the lovely Ching Hu Huang; her fond memories of watching her grandmother pour so much love into her cooking is a story that’s ever relatable and will certainly bring a smile to your face.
