Martin Yan's China

You’ve heard it at least once surely. After all, Martin Yan’s celebrated cooking show, Yan Can Cook, airs in 50 countries and all 1900 episodes include the famous phrase: “If Yan can cook, so can you!” His 24th cookbook in English, Martin Yan’s China (Chronicle Books), is filled with 100 recipes that are so straightforward, you actually believe that you can — cook Chinese that is.

A companion to Yan’s latest PBS series, the cookbook’s recipes showcase China’s four main regional traditions — Cantonese, Mandarin, Shanghai and Sichuan — as well as those from lesser-known provinces in the west: Guangxi, Guizhou and Yunnan. With Chinese New Year around the corner (February 14), there’s no better time to cook a Chinese feast… yes you can!
