An Everlasting Meal

I love two things about the book: 1. her warm tone and her uncanny capability of relating food or cooking to life lessons; 2. lots of descriptions on how you can cook something, instead of the detailed, the measured, the conventionally formatted recipes. It is more like learning to know your ingredients and learning to see what different techniques can coax out of those ingredients. It is more like ‘chinese’ cooking as we know of, that without any recipes you can create lots of delicious dishes, as long as you are willing to experiment.

Her writing reads so much like M.F.K. Fisher, of whose epic Art of Eating books, I wrote a review years ago. Upon further inspection it was six and a half years ago. Gosh.
