THE WOKS OF LIFE: RECIPES TO KNOW AND LOVE FROM A CHINESE AMERICAN FAMILY
by Bill, Judy, Sarah & Kaitlin Leung
The family behind the acclaimed blog The Woks of Life shares 100 of their favorite home-cooked and restaurant-style Chinese recipes.
This is the story of a family as told through food. Judy, the mom, speaks to traditional Chinese dishes and cultural backstory. Bill, the dad, worked in his family’s Chinese restaurants and will walk you through how to make a glorious Cantonese Roast Duck. Daughters Sarah and Kaitlin have your vegetable-forward and one-dish recipes covered—put them all together and you have the first cookbook from the funny and poignant family behind the popular blog The Woks of Life.
In addition to recipes for Mini Char Siu Bao, Spicy Beef Biang Biang Noodles, Cantonese Pork Belly Fried Rice, and Salt-and-Pepper Fried Oyster Mushrooms, there are also helpful tips and tricks throughout, including an elaborate rundown of the Chinese pantry, explanations of essential tools (including the all-important wok), and insight on game-changing Chinese cooking secrets like how to “velvet” meat to make it extra tender and juicy.
Whether you’re new to Chinese cooking or if your pantry is always stocked with bean paste and chili oil, you’ll find lots of inspiration and trustworthy recipes that will become a part of your family story, too.

"Incredibly well put together and thought out Subscription box. Especially for those looking to diversify their cookbook collection and pantry shelves!"
"I must say I am very impressed. Quality ingredients and a generous amount. Off and on I have tried different subscription boxes and they never quite meet my expectations ... Hardcover Cook doesn’t disappoint. I’m already anxious for my next delivery.
"So impressed with the ingredients and the gorgeous cookbook! Can’t wait to try some of the recipes! Also very excited what our next box might bring!"
"My Hardcover Cook subscription has been great! The food items are nice and are adding new flavors to my pantry. And I never thought I'd make Japanese cuisine — it seemed out of reach, but this box made it feel approachable (and it turns out, it is!). I look forward to the next one."
