Here comes another excited news that I want to share with you all. I’m absolutely over the moon. My 2nd cookbook is officially released and hits the shelves of many large bookstores in Hong Kong.
It’s been over 3 years after my 1st cookbook, Easy Recipes－A Selection of Simple Classics, was published. Without your support, sending your feedbacks and love of my recipes, I won’t have the energy and motivation to publish another cookbook. I used to think that all is done if a dish is finished cooking and enjoyed by my loved ones, without a second thought of publishing it at all. All encouraging and kind words, from facebook, emails or blog comments, are received with my deepest gratitude. I feel so awesome, when this new cookbook is released. It's just like a lovely baby born in the family after 9 months of pregnancy as well as the labour of love.
If you’re living in Hong Kong, this post seems to be late for you as this new cookbook is already distributed to many large bookstores in Hong Kong. For other bookstores overseas, like Taiwan, Malaysia or Singapore, the delivery will come in a bit later, but it'll be very soon hopefully. The photos of these copies I took and posted here were just received three days ago. Thanks for my publisher’s speedy DHL service. Now I can feel the real cookbook in my hands, just like holding an adorable baby in my arms.
Back to the contents of this new cookbook, it’s written in both English and Chinese as the previous one. It’s a hand-picked collection of the most popular and well-liked recipes on this blog, together with some new recipes that are never-published before and well tested. On top of that, I shared 7 basic cooking methods, including pan-fry, stir-fry, blanch, deep-fry, steam, stew/braise and bake with tips on how to make a dish successfully and avoiding some common mistakes.
The title of this cookbook is:
