Product description


"The Woks of Life did something miraculous: It reconnected me to my love of Chinese food and showed me how simple it is to make my favorite dishes myself, something I never thought I'd be able to do. Beautifully and lovingly created by the Leung family, this fantastic cookbook should be in every home!"--Kevin Kwan, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians

"For years, Bill, Judy, Sarah, and Kaitlin have been my go-to source for recipes and techniques that have roots firmly planted in Chinese tradition but with a uniquely American experience and voice. Their intergenerational approach makes The Woks of Life unique in its ability to inspire and educate, with an eye toward practicality and usefulness. This is a very special book."--J. Kenji López-Alt, author of The Food Lab and The Wok

"The Woks of Life blog has been one of my absolute favorites for years--these recipes are not only delicious, but they make me excited to try new dishes and flavors. The Leungs help home cooks by explaining everything from cooking tools to pantry staples, and even providing QR codes to reference techniques you may not be familiar with. I cannot wait to cook through this book with my family!"--Alex Snodgrass, New York Times bestselling author of The Defined Dish and The Comfortable Kitchen

"The Woks of Life is one of the first places I go when I need a recipe that I know will be as knowledgeable as it is usable. Having a whole book of recipes to cook through at last is such a gift--I cannot find a single recipe that doesn't entice me to cancel all of my plans and spend my evening cooking instead."--Deb Perelman, author of Smitten Kitchen Keepers

"The Leung family have been my go-to source when I want to make everything from fried rice and scallion pancakes to spicy chili wontons and sesame-slicked Shanghai noodles. I'm thrilled to have all their best recipes in one beautiful book!"--David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen & Drinking French

The Woks of Life became a staple resource for our family when we moved away from home and embarked on re-creating the flavorful memories of our childhood."--Lena and Mei Lum, Wing on Wo & Co

"For years, home cooks have turned to food blog The Woks of Life as a trusted source of Chinese and Chinese-American recipes and cooking, just as they do online, the Leungs dive thoroughly into all the essential techniques, must-have tools and pantry staples that you'll need."--Vetted by Forbes

About the Author

Founded in 2013, The Woks of Life began as a quest to document one family's history through food and has become the most popular online resource for Chinese cooking in English, recording generations of recipes for millions of home cooks. Bill, Judy, Sarah, and Kaitlin Leung have been featured on PBS and Magnolia Network, and online by the Food Network and Good Morning America. The family lives in New Jersey, where they cook, write, and photograph recipes together--and continue their eternal debate over what's for dinner.
