Description: Chinese Express At Last, a Chinese cookbook for those without the time, energy, or resources to cook the classic way. Only someone as knowledgeable as acclaimed Chinese food authority and cookbook author Nina Simonds could simplify this labor-intensive cuisine without losing its essence. 

Here are all those dishes adored in restaurants -- Pan-Fried Noodles, Sweet and Sour Shrimp --fresher, easier, and better than ever before. Exotic newcomers like Barbecued Swordfish with Cilantro Dressing and Grilled Turkey in Lettuce Packages showcase the author's Western sensibility coupled with her years of training in Asia. There are chapters on Chinese barbecue, main-dish salads, finger foods of all kinds, great rice and noodle treats. A spectacular chapter on sweets proves that there's a world of wonderful Chinese desserts beyond lychee nuts and fortune cookies, including Steamed Lemon Cake and Creamy Cinnamon Ginger Ice Cream. 

More than 200 recipes are offered that are fast, fresh, and easy to make and -- the best news yet -- all the ingredients for all the recipes are widely available in any well-stocked supermarket.
