I’m pretty sure I stumbled upon this book while going through the recommendations section of Amazon. It sounded interesting so I added it to my “books to read” notebook page that I keep in Evernote. A few weeks later, I picked it up from the library. It’s one girl’s tale of how she went back to her parents’ native China, attended a cooking course there and worked both as a cook in several extremely varied environments and as a food critic. It also explores the current culinary culture in China and provides recipes for many of the dishes she talks about (!).
