The Last Chinese Chef

Still jetlagged from a trip to Shanghai and Hong Kong, my boss lent me “The Last Chinese Chef” and I am very excited to start reading it once I finish “Brief Lives of Hideous Men” (in reality: title is Brief Interviews With Hideous Men.  Hideous either way you say it).

Words from Ruth Reichl: I don’t think there’s ever been anything quite like this.  It’s a love story, it’s a mystery, and it’s also the most thorough explanation of Chinese food that I’ve ever read in the English language.

I.  cannot.  wait.

  1. oooh:) i’ll see if i can pick it up this weekend.

    Finished reading Endless Feasts (best writing from 60 years of Gourmet) on the plane and it comes highly recommended!

    • I am putting this on the list! I may have also borrowed three books from Reenie at Passover, and have two books out from the Brooklyn Public Library. I would love a personal library. And there would be a special books for foodies / travelers section.
