Serve The People, Jen Lin-Liu TASTY READING

The New York Review mentioned this book in a story about changing times in Beijing and I asked my lil lady to get it for me.

"Lin-Liu, a second-generation Chinese-American from California , was the only foreigner to study at a cooking school in Beijing; she then worked in a variety of restaurants, from a simple noodle shop in Beijing to the Whampoa Club in Shanghai, one of China's fanciest restaurants. Along the way she produces fascinating portraits of the vast world of Chinese cuisine..."
New York Review, 3/26/09, pg.41.

One of the best books I've ever read. See how far you can read before putting down the book and heading out to the nearest Chinese restaurant.
