Easy Chinese Recipes Cookbook

I am extremely thrilled to announce that my first cookbook “Easy Chinese Recipes” is now available  WORLDWIDE (scroll down to see where you can buy a copy of my cookbook) and on Amazon.

It’s been a long journey from the moment I signed the book deal, two years ago precisely. It was a lot of hard work and dedication as I cooked, styled, photographed, and wrote the entire cookbook while I was pregnant. Check out the above promo video to learn more about the cookbook.

The book is a compilation of 80+ easy Chinese recipes: popular Chinese take-outs in the United States, classic Chinatown dishes, restaurant-style recipes, and family favorites. Every recipe is graced with a color photo and many of them have step-by-step picture guide. Most importantly, all recipes are super easy, authentic, and deliver amazingly delicious results. Easy Chinese Recipes is a cookbook that you want to have in your kitchen—it’s filled with everyday recipes that you can refer to on a daily basis.


“What a gorgeous, heartfelt, fun, and inspiring book! From pot stickers, roast pork, steamed fish, original chow mein, and much more, Bee Yinn Low demystifies one of the world’s greatest cuisines through this amazing trove of utterly authentic yet accessible recipes. If you love Chinese food, you must—and I mean must—own this book.” — Harris Salat, food writer and coauthor of The Japanese Grill

“Easy Chinese Recipes is a clear guide to help you cook Chinese for your family and friends. Bee Yinn Low is a multi-talented writer and cook, and her easy to follow recipes along with her own beautiful photography makes this a book you will reach for over and over again.”— Robert Danhi, author & photographer of Southeast Asian Flavors

“This book gushes with Bee Yinn Low’s enthusiasm for pursuing and preparing tasty Chinese food.” — Andrea Nguyen, author of Into the Vietnamese Kitchen and Asian Dumplings

“I’m extremely thrilled that you’re holding this cookbook, because that means you’ll be discovering the secrets to authentic Chinese home cooking.” — Jaden Hair, author of The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook

    CANNOT WAIT! I feel so lucky to have been a recipe tester and thus had a sneak “taste” at the awesome recipes in this book! If the rest of the recipes are even half as good as the 2 I got to test, then the book is killer!!! And knowing you, there’s no doubt that is the case!! CONGRATS!

  2. If the recipes inside are like the cover, it’s going to be a winner. Many people don’t see Chinese recipes as easy and I’m glad you’re showing that it’s really easier than most others.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS Bee! I’m so so excited for you and kuddos to you for all that hard work you’ve put into the book. I have no doubt that the book’s gonna be a huge hit and its worldwide release confirms how popular you are and so will be your book! Can’t wait to lay my hands on it :-)

  4. Pam

    Everything looks so delicious… yum. What a huge accomplishment to be published.. Congratulations!!

  5. I’m sooo thrilled that it’s almost out. Can’t wait to see it and get a copy. Are you going to be doing book signings?

  6. Oh Wow Bee….that cover looks amazing! Congratulations- you must be so proud! I don’t see a Middle East release date there but it’s ok. I’ll get it when I’m in UK over summer. Well done!

  7. Hema

    I think you have a great blog and I am sure your cookbook is going to be a great hit! Congratulations and All the Best!

  8. sumeetnair

    The recipes I tested were awesome! Can’t wait for the book to hit India. Congratulations on getting it done.

  9. This is truly exciting, Bee. Though now that I have looked at this a bit closer, I realise it features Chinese recipes. I was half expecting a Nyonya Recipe feature :) That would be the next project!

    Looking forward to see this on the shelf.

  10. Chai Leng

    Congratulations! I have been looking into your site since my younger bro introduced it to me. We both work overseas and obviously missed Msian food. Eventhough I am not much of a cooking person, I find comfort in looking into your blog and when I have the courage and strength to cook some dishes. Many thanks for sharing your recipes and I look forward to purchasing your book.

  22. Aniko86

    I’m a big fan from Hungary, Europe. How can i buy this book here in Hungary? The price with the shipping would be too expensive i guess…But i want it…please… Are you planning to sell it in some foreign language bookshops in Budapest? thanks

  23. n1k1

    Just purchased your cookbook and it’s fabulous. Noticed that ‘beef with broccoli’ has missing instruction. Is that deliberate?

      • Carolyn

        I just purchased your book & can’t wait to start cooking. I, too, seem to be missing the instructions for the Beef with Broccoli recipe. I have the ingredient list, a big picture of the final product, but no instructions on what to do with the ingredients. There are no instructions on the right hand side of the page. I’m wondering if some of the books are in error?

  24. kiran kirpalani

  25. Simon

    Hey there

    I purchased your book and read through it. Even thought I’m familiar with some of the “basics” in chinese cuisine I must say I’m impressed with the diversity of your recipes. I will walk into the best asian grocery shop in oslo on friday and catch some of the ingredients. If I am unable to find Maltose, is there any good substitutes?

    After some years of laziness I have finally got myself to do something about the future blog. Don’t be surprised if it pops up a review with actual testing of some of the recipes.

    • Hi Simon – thanks so much for buying my cookbook. You can use more honey if you can’t find Maltose but you can order it online at Thanks and I hope to read your review soon. :)

      • Simon

        Hi there again Bee,

        I have been reading some more into your book and absorbed some of the information somewhat closer. It seems like some of the recipes presented in the book is “sauceless”. Was this intentional? It appears to be a lot of marinade ingredients presented in that recipe. I trust that you appreciate and respect constructive criticism.

        Btw. I have tried making the bbq Sauce, the outcome was delicious. After some asian grocery store hopping I couldn’t quite find maltose. What I did here was to roughly double the amount of high quality honey i bought in the store. The pork tenderloin is now marinating. I just used the regular shao xing wine which worked fine. gonna cook the char siu on sunday with the chinese cucumber salad and Jasmine rice:). Surprise for my better half.

      • Simon

        Just checking in with a few words. I so far made your version of beef and broccoli, it turned out very delicious. I have to say that its pretty close to the one my former shanghai born father in law made + the one i used to eat in china town. But the version i cooked before and ate before was made with Chinese broccoli instead of regular broccoli.

        The char siu pork became a instant hit. There were even some leftovers to make “char siu fried rice” the day after. About the substitute for maltose, I found a good quality Maple syrup that really did the trick:)

  26. wendy luu

    Please give us all some great dishes to prepare for Chinese New Year! I love your work btw, I have been a big fan since you first started. Can’t wait to get my hands on your book. Best of luck!

  27. Kim H`

    I picked up a copy of this from work (I work in a museum gift shop) and WOW. I have made just about all of the chicken, beef and pork recipes and they have turned out so well! It’s so refreshing to be able to cook Chinese food without having to hunt high and low for the ingredients.

    I LOVE your sweet and sour sauce, I make it weekly and have used it often in just about everything else I cook.

  28. Tina An Chinn

  30. Tony Chuah

    Dear Bee, First let me thank you for the recipes that you have been churning out. They are so clearly spelt out and easy to follow especially for a beginner like me. I recently took a great interest in cooking after my wife passed on. I have been regularly looking out for your recipe to cook meal for my 3 sons. I have also observed so many giveaways from your but only to the US residence. I am from Malaysia following our very own recipes but can drool at the various giveaways. Can’t the offer be also extended to Malaysia? Would love to lay my hands on one of the giveaways.
