“Ronnie Woo is fabulous in every way possible. In evidence of this, please check out the pic of him on page 2 (the flamingo T-shirt and hot sauce bottle). I can’t wait to make Ronnie’s Hawaiian Chicken Vermicelli Bowl, by request of my husband. We are both huge fans. His food is outrageous. But more important, he’s just fun to be around. Let me quote him, ‘You know when your mind is telling you to eat a salad and your body is begging you for some carbs? Well, that’s me every day, but luckily, I am a genius and I found the perfect solution.’ HA! I love this guy and I love his food.” — Rachael Ray

“Although Ronnie Woo is unquestionably proud of his Asian heritage, his cooking inspiration includes just about every other continent too. In lieu of bacon to go with his eggs, he turns a chunk of pork butt into a version of Chinese barbecued pork, char siu. Woo’s remarkable recipes have some healthy options, particularly some entree-worthy salads... Woo’s enthusiasm bubbles in every recipe’s description, and photos add to the book’s festive approach to cooking.” — Booklist
