In order to infuse lobsters with Chinese and other Asian flavors, Ching prepares a complex sauce of chiles, lemongrass, ginger and shrimp paste mixed in peanut oil and coconut milk, then marinates the boiled lobsters in it for several hours before grilling.While the Americanized version of this recipe typically calls for deep-fried chicken, Ching stir-fries her General Tso's chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce along with peanuts and scallions for a healthier (and more authentic) take on the recipe.By slicing tender celery on an angle and using tofu gan – a flavored, firm tofu that holds up better to wok cooking – Ching ensures this dish cooks evenly and has the perfect medley of textures.A trio of chili bean paste, rice vinegar and chile oil add characteristic heat, offset by tangy lemon juice and sensation-inducing whole Sichuan peppercorns.First she roasts pork loin with a sweet-and-tangy peach barbecue sauce (with ginger, garlic and soy Asian notes) and then stir-fries the cooked meat with a medley of vegetables and aromatic Chinese five-spice powder.

Ching's favorite barbecue chicken recipe features Chinese yellow bean sauce, a salty paste made of fermented soy beans that can be purchased at any local Asian market.

After searing them in a wok, she tops the pork loins with pineapple juice and lime mixture for that characteristic sweet-and-sour flavor.

To give carrots the thinness of bok choy, cabbage and sugar snap peas – and ensure that her vegetables cook evenly – Ching slices them into delicate ribbons using a potato peeler.
