Enjoy Simple, Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Chinese Dishes with The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook Chinese food is a favorite among many American families. But its harmonious fusion of sweet spice and tangy heat doesn't have to go hand-in-hand with overly sugary sauces, extra salt, greasy meats, or undesired MSG. When Charmaine Ferrara moved from Malaysia to America more than 15 years ago, she was struck by the difference between the American adaptation of Chinese food and the traditional Chinese fare she'd grown up on. Charmaine began experimenting with her wok, recalling how her mother and grandmother made dishes, to recreate the meals she was missing. Since then, she's devoted herself to showing others how simple it is to create delicious Chinese recipes the way they were intended--fresh, flavorful, and light--and in her first Chinese cookbook, Charmaine does exactly that.
