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.

This is the kind of book that you look through and think ‘why has nobody produced this until now’? It features ALL of your favourites, and best of all, they’re EASY to cook.

On top of that, there’s something very fun about cooking Chinese food from scratch. Quite quickly and without much fuss at all, your raw ingredients turn into a plateful of joy and these dishes genuinely are the real deal and taste exactly like your favourite takeaways.

We can’t recommend this book enough. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be cooking something from it and sharing it with you… watch this space!
