Since I got the book deal and secured the contract with my publisher, I started working days and nights, from drafting recipes, shopping for ingredients and cooking, taking photographs, writing articles together with translating recipes, it’s a long to-do list to get finished at the end of last year. Then, there had been countless, long chains of email exchange with my editor. Two months ago, I got a chance to go back to my hometown, Hong Kong, and conducted a face-to-face meeting with my editor and designer to finalize all the details. Looking back, over a year, the cookbook was indeed a labour of love by many wonderful people, not only me. I feel so blessed and happy to work with them.
Most importantly, without the support of you, my dear readers / fans, I couldn’t get this far. Many fans of my Chinese facebook fan page kept asking when my cookbook will be released. Sorry for the long wait. Thank you all for your patience.
As many of my fans are bilingual readers, some with friends who only read English, my cookbook is written in both Chinese and English. Here’s the detailed information.
The title of my cookbook is:
《簡易食譜──精選．易學．經典》 Easy Recipes - A Selection of Simple Classics
How does this cookbook look like?

- To walk you through the 7 Daily Necessities that Every Cook Should Know.
- It’s written in Chinese-English, with clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
