Award-winning author Grace Young celebrates and demystifies the art of wok cooking for the Western home cook. Young’s fascination with wok cooking began in San Francisco’s Chinatown, where her father taught her to appreciate wok hay, the elusive and prized taste that food achieves when cooked in a wok. As an adult, her quest to reproduce that extraordinary taste sent her on a journey through America, Hong Kong, and China, where she gathered stories, recipes, and advice from home cooks, professional chefs, and culinary teachers. The result is not just a cookbook but a unique documentation of a way of life: wok cooking is not just about recipes, but about cultivating and cooking with all the senses, and about perpetuating one of the world’s oldest culinary traditions. Beginning with the selection, seasoning, and care of a wok, Young elucidates the secrets of wok hay and offers 120 recipes ranging from simple to complex, including favorites like Kung Pao Chicken and Moo Shoo Pork as well as unusual dishes like Tofu with Cilantro Relish and Stir-Fried Garlic Lettuce. Young also offers menu suggestions for family-style meals and Chinese New Year celebrations, plus a comprehensive glossary and resource list. Illustrated with 150 photographs by acclaimed photographer Alan Richardson, The Breath of a Wok is an extraordinary culinary adventure.

A young man contemplates piano lessons and hockey; two misfits in Chinatown discover love; a Vancouver woman fondly recalls her parent's old house in Newfoundland; a girl goes to Canada to escape her father; a tired old woman recalls her origins as an orphan for sale; a teenage girl cuts off her hair and leaves home... This new anthology brings together some of the most exciting works of fiction by contemprorary Chinese Canadian Writers. Representing three generations of Chinese from a variety of backgrounds, including writers born in Canada as well as places outside, presenting a diversity of themes and styles, and set in various geographical locations and time periods, Strike the Wok is a truly kaleidoscopic look at Chinese life from modern Canadian perspectives. Internationally renowned as well as newer voices are included. Contributors: Judy Fong Bates, Lien Chao, Grace Chin, Ritz Chow, Wayson Choy, Jessica Gin-Jade, Kagan Goh, Goh Poh Seng, David M Hsu, Harry J Huang, Winston C Kam, Khoo Gaik Cheng, Alexis Kienlen, Lydia Kwa, Larissa Lai, Fiona Tinwei Lam, Edward Y C Lee, SKY Lee, Iris Li, Andy Quan, Loretta Seto, Ben Soo, Madelaine Thien, Sherwin Tjia, Fred Wah, Gein Wong, Jim Wong-Chu, Terry Woo, Kam-Sein Yee, Paul Yee "It is exciting to see works that take risks by experimenting with form... This collection pushes against assumptions about Chinese Canadian literature and shows support for emerging writers. In this way, Strike the Wok argues the importance of showcasing contemporary fiction in order to reflect the changing Chinese Canadian literary community." - Ricepaper
