Grandma Grandpa Cook
Grandma Grandpa Cook
Paperback      ISBN: 9881858399
A collection of over forty recipes and stories recounted by grandparents who came to Hong Kong from China before World War II, Grandma Grandpa Cook is a celebration of the selfless devotion of grandparents to their families, and their contribution to the cultural history of foodways in Hong Kong. Filled with vivid accounts of everyday life during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and the riots of 1967, all of this history fades into insignificance when food comes into the picture—traditional Cantonese dishes like carrot and green turnip soup, taro in ginger and brown sugar, and sticky rice dumplings.

"This series of stripped-down pictorials worth a thousand words is the missing link between elementally vague text-based cookbooks and video instruction you can't slow down enough or take into the kitchen. Elegant design you can't help but devour. Highly recommended for all experience levels." -- Library Journal
