In 1999 I published my first cookbook “The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen.” It was a labor of love. A tribute to my family’s recipes and stories tracing our history from China to San Francisco’s Chinatown dating from the early 1930s. For months I checked the San Francisco Chronicle every week anxious to read the review but to my disappointment it never came. How could a book written by a native San Franciscan be overlooked? So it was quite unexpected and a welcomed surprise to discover the Chronicle’s review of “Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge” today. Here’s a little excerpt: “Along with the recipes, readers can easily become captivated by Young’s storytelling. It touches on her life experiences, family, travels and culinary adventures, and often provides detailed descriptions of the dishes themselves and why they’re important to her.” It’s a lovely review and I’m particularly gratified to see my San Francisco citizenship mentioned.
