This book just rocks on so many different levels. It's a memoir, but it's also about the experience of food, food culture and about china and Szechuan. It's about integration and developing your palate and opening up to new experiences. The book is constructed really well, and I thoroughly enjoyed every page. Not something you can say about many books. Her cook books are great, both to read and to cook from too. I hope she'll be coming out with more soon!-D. Moller
Simply put, Ms. Dunlop writes a captivating memoir about her time in China learning to cook. But it's far more than a simple memoir or a simple food book. Her dexterity with translating the essence of food from China into terms and concepts Westerners can understand is breath-taking. I've used many of her recipes with great success. Simply put this book plus her other two cookbooks deserve a place in every kitchen and food library. If you think you understand Chinese food as it's presented in the West, you will learn so much from these books about just how amazing Chinese food can be.-Thom
Interesting story of how the author became a Chinese chef-she is British. She has published at least 3 cookbooks-all interesting and do-able.
Also her travels to try different cuisines took me places I will never go and food I probably would not eat like live snake.
Read quickly as it was so interesting. For cooks and food lovers alike, and travelers. -MS. Fun
