The series contains Ching's own versions of easy to make Chinese Food, spicy Szechuan food, Noodles, Dim sum, Sea Food, Fast Food, Desserts and Celebratory Food, where she presents a complete banquet.

Episodes[edit]

Olympic medal winning rower Katherine Grainger appears in the first episode of the series. Ching teaches Katherine how to cook a healthy version of sweet and sour pork. The show attracted 2.9 million viewers at a share of 13% that night.

In another episode she creates her unique Chinese style version of the popular British take away dish fish and chips. She aims to create the ideal balance of east and west. Ching often reinvents favourite Chinese dishes, modernizing them with fresh, easy to buy ingredients and offers simple practical tips and techniques.

Much of the fresh produce she used in her authentic Chinese cookery are grown or made locally in the UK, for example chillies from Chorley, Tofu from Melton Mowbray, soy sauce from Wales and pak choi from Preston. Ching has visited and credits them with producing high quality products and vegetables.
