Hello there! I decided it was about time I gave something away on The Silver Chicken! So here we go… I am giving away a copy of the brilliant Gok Cooks Chinese.

I was glued to the series which aired recently. I watched every episode with interest and I was compelled to start cooking tasty stir-frys, pot-stickers and dumplings! Gok cooks up an array of delicious dishes in this series, and makes it all look so easy! I bought a copy of his book and thought I would also buy a copy for one of you nice people to win.
