Victor Sen Yung was an intrepid Chinese American character actor, businessperson, and cooking enthusiast.

Generations knew him as Hop Sing from the classic television show Bonanza, but in his Great Wok Cookbook, Victor Sen Yung shares the art of authentic Chinese wok cooking in over 200 mouthwatering recipes.

Chinese cooking is an adventure in living, according to Sen Yung, whom many are surprised to learn was an accomplished chef off the screen. The Great Wok Cookbook reveals Victor Sen Yung’s approach to preparing authentic Chinese cuisine, selecting the best ingredients and making meals look as amazing as they taste. Sen Yung’s cultural insights, sprinkled generously throughout the book, derive from his experience as a child of immigrants who started learning family recipes at the age of five.

Recipes include classics from egg rolls and Won Ton soup to Chinese Barbecued Pork and Spicy Szechwan Chicken. Whether you are a neophyte cook or a seasoned gourmet chef, the Great Wok Cookbook will provide valuable insights for the perfect preparation of classic Chinese cuisine.
